Homemade Waffle Bowls

The other day I decided I was hungry for ice cream in a waffle cone or bowl. I also decided that it must be something you can make at home, and I was right. Though, it wasn't quite as succesful as I first imagined!

I found a couple batter recipes, here, here, and here. All contain basically the same ingredients:

3 eggs

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder

Beat the eggs and gradually beat in the sugar until the mixture is creamy.
Stir in the melted butter and vanilla.
Combine the flour and baking powder, and then add it to the mixture. Blend it in well.

Here is where it got tricky. Most sites said to use a pizzelle maker or Krumkake machine , which I don't have. Hmmm....what to do?

Nope, in my waffle maker they made, guess what? Waffles! ha

So I got out my griddle and tried my best to make them thin round pancakes. The first were a bit thick, but I got better and better.

This is how I decided to make my pancakes into bowls. I slipped the pancake over one glass and gently set a bigger glass on top. It cooled in about 2-3 minutes.

Now, both M. & I thought they were delicious, but we actually ate them without the ice cream. We just snacked one them as-is. :)

I wasn't very good at storage, so they got a little soft by just keeping them in a tupperware container.

This website, Skip to My Lou, has some great pictures and success it looks like. I'd recommend going on over there to follow her steps. :)

If you ever want to make them again I have a krumkake iron you can borrow. I haven't used it in years, pre-children, I believe. I should makes these one of the next days!

Perhaps I will! Thanks for the offer. First I have to figure out a good way to store them so that I can make a big batch :)
