Homemade waffle cones

I bought once some waffle cones from the supermarket in order to serve my ice-cream. First time, they served me well, but next time, my children asked only for the waffle cones to eat them as simple biscuits. I arrived in this way to buy them quite regularly. They were light, sweet and crunchy, no wonder that they were so much loved by my children.
That situation challenged me to make my own waffle cones. In fact they are just simple dry waffles rolled in a cone shape to hold the ice-cream.
With my dry waffle iron I baked the waffles. With a special wood cone, I rolled them up. I had to be very quick as they were drying very fast after removing them from the iron. But I learnt to make them very easily.
Guess what? They didn't arrive to be filled with ice-cream as they were eaten by my kids before. Now I need to do another batch....

  • 4 egg whites
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 180g all-purpose flour
  • 90g butter (melted). You can add a bit more also.
  • a pinch of salt

  1. Pre-heat your waffle iron maker.
  2. Beat the egg whites with sugar and salt.
  3. Add the vanilla essence and mix.
  4. Add half of the flour quantity and mix.
  5. Add the melted butter and the remaining flour and mix.
  6. With a small ice cream scoop, pour the batter in the waffle maker.
  7. Depending on your waffle maker you need to cook them for 1-2 minutes or until they start browning.
  8. Immediately after taking them out, you need to roll them on a cone shape and press to stick together the joint.

Let them cool and enjoy.
