Question Waffle maker

I am looking for a waffle maker. The kind that makes thin waffle, really thin. Ideally it has to be 8-9 inches in diameter. Internet has not been helpful, I might be searching for a wrong thing.

Charlie, are looking for waffles thinner than American waffles? Something like a pizzelle?

I'm going to stick my neck out and assume that you are looking for "standard" waffle maker, rather than a Belgium waffle maker.

I do not like the thick waffles. This is what I have used for 2 years and I had a similar one for many years before this one.

Are the waffles you want crispy?

Sounds like "krumkage" to me. Here's a Wikipedia article about the Norwegian version, "krumkake". I think that the origin is Danish, rather than Norwegian.

There are electric irons for these, as well as the old fashioned kind.

Its standard depth, 1/4 inch, as opposed to Belgium thick depth.

I like a thin, crispy waffle so I use approx 1/3 cup batter. Jeannie prefers more fluffy waffles so, I use 1/2+ to make hers.

Thank you, but they are tiny. 4.5 inches. I am looking for 8-9 inches in diameter and practically flat.

When you get it, show us a picture. Then, when you have made some of these, shows us some pix of your waffles. How are they served?

I'm interested also. Are they waffles or cookies?

Are you thinking of crepes? You can make them with an 8- or 10-inch non-stick pan, or there are special crepe pans you can buy.

No, I'm not. I posted the picture. It is a really thin waffle (or whatever the proper name )

I googled Russian Waffle Cake, and I got mostly Ukrainian waffle cake. After it's cut, it looks a lot like chocolate vanilla and strawberry sugar wafers we get in the supermarket cookie aisle.

Is that it, Charlie?

I too, googled and came up with a lot of Russian Honey Cakes which are made with the thin thin crepes.

But also this, unfortunately she made the cake with store bought waffles.

You certainly have us all intrigued Charlie!

Charlie, I think what you want is a "waffle cone maker". The pattern probably won't be as small as in your picture, but the waffles will be thin and they will become stiff when they cool off.

Here's an example: waffle cone maker
