Supersized egg waffles!

My buddy and I bought a new camera and decided to have a go at making the notoriously delicious egg waffles .....with a cake pop machine

They turned out extremely delicious (and believe me I am quite a harsh critic on myself) but also nearly twice the size of the typical egg waffle you can find at your local asian dessert house. The kids went crazy over them and devoured our whole supply of eggs, sugar, and flour.

Well first, let me welcome you to DC. You are off to a good start. We just love food porn. Our favorite type of pictures. Those waffles look so inviting. I would love to have some. How about sharing the recipe? And what is a cake pop machine? Even a picture of that would be nice. It is the first time I have heard of that.

This is a fun place to be. If you find yourself down, then go to Today's Funny. A great place to cheer yourself up.

The batter looks like a Dutch Baby, Yorkshire Pudding, or popover batter. I'm guessing that the pop-cake machine is the small cooking device used to heat the pop-over/muffin pan that the batter was poured into. Extra batter was poured across the pan to form a sheet that was attached to the popovers.

I think it would be fun to fill the pan, with the cups 3/4ths full, then add a cube of American, or Havarti cheese so as to cause the batter to overflow and join the batter sheet. The end result would be the same, but with cheese in the middle of the domes. Yum.

Thanks for the warm welcome! The recipe should be annotated into the video but it may be blocked by the ads at the bottom.

When making egg waffles, almost everyone would tell you the first thing to do is invest in a egg waffle machine. Unfortunately they are either too difficult to find (as not many cooking stores even know what egg waffles are) or too expensive like the Williams-Sonoma one.

Turns out, as long as you have the batter right, even a cake pop machine would do. A cake pop is a form of cake styled as a lollipop. Cake crumbs are mixed with icing or chocolate, and formed into small spheres or cubes in the same way as cake balls, before being given a coating of icing, chocolate or other decorations and attached to lollipop sticks. Cake pops can be a way of using up leftover cake or cake crumbs and really hit it off since 2009. The best part is that you can find these machines everywhere in North America!

Not quite. They more resemble belgian waffles. Due to the design of the egg waffle machine however (or in this case the cake pop machine), you can achieve both soft and crispy finish that many belgian waffle restaurants forces you to choose between one or the either. A cake pop, on the otherhand, has a cake/muffin-like consistency to it. The egg waffles are a completely unique breed of dessert sought after by many people like us!

The belgian waffel recipe I use is a yeast-risen waffle with the egg whites whipped before being folded into the batter. It has more egg in it that does my baking powder risen waffles. The outside is crispy, while the inside is soft, with just enough bread-like texture to make them scrumptious. I think that recipe would approximate what you have made. Of course I'd have to compare the ingredients to be sure, as I'm guessing again based upon what you've said.

By the way, congrats on your innovative technique to make your waffles without the pricy, specialty waffle iron. Your waffle looks to be a great success. And thanks for explaining the difference between my suspected guess, and what you actually did.

Welcome to DC. I look forward to more great things, and discussions about food and the techniques used to make them.

Better yet, add a dash of green tea or chocolate and you will have yourself a whole variety of different flavored egg waffles!
