Tubular Waffle Grid Wafers 2

Back in August, I published my recipe for Tubular Waffle Grid Wafers that I used test tubes for helping shape the cooked wafers. (I wanted to use my waffle cone appliance to make shapes besides waffle cones.) This time, I used a 3 x 8 grid text tube rack for holding the shapes. The rack is open air, better for air circulation and avoiding trapping steam than the set of test tubes I used previously. Also, the 24 vertical cavities means I can stand up a lot more tubular wafers.

My pixstrip shows the following images:
  1. Equipment and utensils
  2. Ingredients and mixing
    1. Eggs and salt, to be mixed together first
    2. Sugar, to be added to the eggs and salt mixture (Yes, I'm reusing this and the next pix of ingredients.)
    3. Rest of ingredients
  3. Process completion
    1. Batter baking process (1st and 2nd image in the 2nd row)
    2. A rolled baked wafer
    3. Finished tube wafers in the test tube rack (My batch of 18 includes a few substandard ones for cautionary note.)
Equipment and utensils (spray oil being a bridge from equipment to baking process)
  • Waffle cone maker
  • Mixer (I used an electric hand mixer.)
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Rubber spatula(s)
  • Plastic spatula
  • Mixing bowl(s)
  • Cooling rack
  • Test tube rack, available online for less than $10
Ingredients and mixing (from the Simply Vanilla Wafer Cones recipe of the Bella Recipe Guide)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 C of water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 C cake flour (can sub with 1 C flour -2 T flour +2 T cornstarch)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Recommended: Spray oil application about every other wafer or so.
  1. Beat the eggs and salt.
  2. Add the sugar and beat it. :-)
  3. Add the water, oil, cake flour (or replacement flours), and vanilla.
Process completion (baking, etc.)
Prepare the iron as instructed with your appliance. Because I've used mine a few times, I've only wiped the cooking surfaces with a clean, warm, damp kitchen rag for cleaning preparation, sprayed the cooking surfaces, and plugged the cord. Heating time is a minute or so.

For each disk, pour about 2 T batter, close the lid, and heat for about 30 seconds. Move the cooked disk onto the cooling rack, roll it up, and slide it into a cavity. Continue the batter dispensing and baking process until you use up the batter. My calculations for calories, about 93 calories for each tube.

Great idea! Can't wait to try it.

Thanks for the comment! Variations I'm going to try are pouring a little less batter per wafer so I get more tubes, using fortune cookie batter recipe to test for more "snap", and replacing half of the oil with sesame oil for flavor.
