Every year, for the past several years, my mom has gotten me a kitchen gadget for Christmas. It’s always fun to see what she finds (I’ve gotten a pretzel maker, mini cupcake machine, cotton candy maker, brownie maker… you get it). Last year, she found this super cute waffle bowl maker! I decided to get it out for breakfast last weekend and the results were fancy and delicious.
For now, I went with a classic waffle recipe, but I plan to experiment with other ingredients in the near future. I’m thinking chili in a tater-tot waffle bowl, chicken & waffles, or a brownie bowl with ice cream (I’ll have to double up on workouts that day!). The non-stick surface of the maker allows the waffle to pop out with ease, and makes clean-up a breeze.
What You Need
- Presto Waffle Bowl Maker
- Baking Powder
- Vegetable Oil
- Vanilla Extract
- Fresh Fruit
- Whipped Topping
First, plug in your waffle bowl maker so it begins to preheat. While that’s going on, mix the wet and dry ingredients separately in two different bowls. Then, whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they’re just thoroughly moistened. Don’t over mix, or your waffles could be chewy rather than fluffy. I use a batter dispenser to avoid wasting batter with messy drips down the side of my mixing bowls. Fill the waffle bowl maker to just below the fill line (I get oozing if I go all the way to the fill line-but you can experiment for yourself). Once your waffle is golden brown (4-5 minutes) use a fork to stab it and slide it out.
The tricky part comes in the timing if you are serving more than a couple people at once. I followed the instructions that came with the waffle bowl maker and put them upside down in the oven at 200 degrees to keep them warm and crisp, which seemed to work well. Once all your bowls have been made, finish them off by filling with fruit and topping with whipped cream or cool whip and a sprinkling of powdered sugar, if desired. You’re sure to be wa-FULL after just one bowl!
Yum!! Do you have a waffle bowl maker? What creations have you made?! Let me know in the comments!
