Introduction: Bubble Waffles

About: Hello and Welcome to In the Kitchen With Matt. I am your host Matt Taylor. My goal for the show is to teach you how to cook really good food at home for cheap. Eating out everyday can get expensive, but it doe…

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make Bubble Waffles or Egg Waffles or Eggettes. This bubble waffle recipe is very easy to make. Bubble Waffles or Egg Waffles come from Hong Kong and are very popular there and in Thailand. They are commonly served wrapped almost like a waffle cone and placed in a container then filled with whipped cream, fruit, or ice cream. But you can eat them flat like a normal waffle, or pull them apart and have the egg shapes in a bowl. Pretty awesome! They taste similar to American waffles, a tad bit eggier. If I can do it, you can do it. Let's get started!

Step 2: Eggsellent

In a small bowl whisk together the eggs along with the vanilla extract and the milk. Or you can use water as well.

Step 3: Sift the Flour

In another bowl sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Then add the white granulated sugar.

Step 4: Finish the Batter

Next, mix in the flour sugar mixture with the egg mixture. Melt the butter and add that in, or you may use oil.

Step 5: The Bubble Waffle Iron

Now you will need a special waffle iron for these. There are a variety of these irons on the market I use the Master Chef brand bubble waffle iron. Place the iron onto a sheet pan. The sheet pan will catch any drippings that may occur. Give it a spray with some kitchen spray and turn it on. Once it is heated up use a cup or ladle and add some batter to the iron. I usually start in the middle and work my way out. Don't add too much or it will definitely overflow when it cooks. Then close the top and flip it over. Make sure to hold the lid shut when you flip it. Let it cook for 1 minute and 30 seconds, then flip it over again and let it cook for another 1 minute 30 seconds. About 3 minutes or until nice and golden brown.

Step 6: Remove and Serve

Now once the bubble waffle is done you can remove it. If it is too thin likely it will fall apart leaving you little unattached bubbles. Which is totally fine! I love them unattached like that. Otherwise, you can use a wooden spatula and fork to pry it out in one piece. You may also use a plate and just flip the iron over and allow the waffle to fall out onto the plate. Next, serve them up however you like. I like to eat them with maple syrup and powdered sugar. You can roll it into a cone shape and place it in a glass or something and then fill it with fruit, ice cream, etc. Enjoy! :)
