I think you need to say how hot to make your oven!
Can you use a crepe maker for this if you don't have a waffle iron?
what is a good substitute if you don't have a waffle iron?
Joe: it's a waffle iron, not an oven! (use exclamation points when you want to exclaim)
Bonnie: You can probably use a crepe maker, but it won't have the fun waffle texture (the variation of thick and thin sections is part of what gives the waffle cone strength) so be really careful with your crepe cones. It's always worth a try, right?
Ironless: Umm... maybe call bonnie next week and see how things went.
It went awseome!!!
where can i get a waffle iron?
Does it matter as to what type of waffle iron you use? Mine is very deep, like a belgin style waffle, makes very thick ones. Will this work??
I think you need a special waffle maker that is pretty much flat with just a little grid.
Yes, you need a special waffle cone baker. Even a standard waffle baker will not work - still too thick. To answer an earlier questtion you need to set your cone baker to approximately 385°F and cook for about 1 minute. Check out NEMCO Food Equipment's website they sell cone bakers - really for commercial use but will give you an idea of what you're looking for - or they can sell you one if you would like.
I need to know how much of the waffle mixture to put into the waffle maker to make the waffle cones?
You can use a regular grill, or crepe pan, use small amount of batter, and once browned on both sides, form to any shape you can imagine and let cool. Did you ever notice that cones and fortune cookies taste very much alike? Sandra Lee has a recipe that she baked in an oven, check out her Semi-homemade site.
I made the Recipe it made 3 waffle cones for me kinda on the thick side. My griddle hads a shalow grid pattern with an oblong shape the only problem i had was the break section lines they made a week spot when you used less batter. They taste great,and hold shape well. I used a coffee mug that has a tapper to cool them in.
hi made im yummy
You need a waffle CONE iron, Not a waffle iron as the recipe directions mistakenly read. A CONE iron is essentially flat with tiny raised decoration about the height of a needle. Any other kind of waffle iron is too deep. For the batter measure, use a #40 cookie scoop or about 2-3 TBSP of batter, but you can experiment to your taste. Too much more batter flows out the sides. This recipe made very thin delicate crispy cones.
This worked really well. Writing this from Britain so may have got some of the measurements wrong. I used about 125ml of sugar (half mug) and 180 ml plain flour (2/3 of a mug). It wa a bit thick so I doubled the amount of butter (not sure if water/skimmed milk would have done the same) and then poured 1 1/2 tablespoons into a dry, pre-heated non-stick frying pan. I moved the mixture around off the heat to make a thin pancake before returning over a medium heat and cooking on both sides until light brown. Able to shape when cooked and leave to crispen.
Also used to make a crispy centre for chocolates/base for florentines, using a cookie cutter on the soft waffle just after taking it out of the pan. Also nicely flavoured with a teaspoon of natural peppermint extract/flavouring.
Just cause it's silmpe doesn't mean it's not super helpful.
Pleasant Hill Grain has the waffle cone makers
Good recipe, I did not have waffle or creepe maker so I used a frypan :) didn't work awesomely but I managed to make very dodge but yummy cones. Was a thick recepe though which made it hard to flatten in fry pan. Thnk you
These are easy to make, but yes...there is a big difference between a waffle iron and a waffle CONE iron. You can use a crepe machine, but the size of the actual cone will be dramatically smaller, which might be a good thing. You don't need a massive cone just to enjoy a small scoop of icecream. You can get creative and add things like mint extract, lemon extract, etc. to compliment a certain flavor of icecream. I found an Old World waffle cone press and cone shaper at a swapmeet for cheap, and that machine has been iconic around the holidays at my house. A gourmet waffle cone, with a piece of apple/ or pumpkin pie shoved in it, topped with vanilla icecream. Yum! Ideas are endless!
