Show Notes
It’s a summer school’s out special! For June we announce new free song downloads from The Sleep. Laura shares her chocolate waffle recipe, Neil celebrates Father’s Day with Star Trek, and we wonder how many TV shows with “Hunters” in the title are really necessary. It’s a landmark moment when we have our first disagreement regarding “Guys Neil Finds Attractive.” Finally, we announce the winners of our Depeche Mode prize packages. Hey listeners, you’re all winners in our eyes! Cool summery tracks by The Sleep, Hungry Lucy, Venus Hum and Bears of Winter.

Chocolate Waffles for Lurry Dean

1-½ c cake flour (sifted)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup chocolate syrup (plus extra for drizzling)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar
¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon vanilla
vanilla ice cream

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and set aside.

Melt butter in a medium size bowl. Add ½ cup chocolate syrup and mix until combined. Let cool.

In a large bowl, combine 2 eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir thoroughly.

Add in the chocolate mixture and stir until combined.

Add chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir just until smooth.

Heat waffle iron to a medium setting. Spray with cooking spray before each batch. These are very soft, and burn easily.

Texture of waffle will be like a soft brownie. Top with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

    What a sweet treat! Thank you Smiths!

    This recipe is inspiration enough for me to obtain a waffle iron.

    Thanks again.
