Have you ever heard of Bubble Waffles or perhaps Eggettes? I know I hadn't until very recently. My Husband had been perusing a website that had a ton of unique gift ideas on it. One of the items he came across was a Bubble Waffle maker and we were all intrigued. We ordered the Bubble Waffle Maker from Cucina Pro and anxiously waited for it to arrive.
Since I had no idea what to expect, I did do some research across the internet to find recipe inspiration and to find out how they are served. Turns out this is a popular street food item in Hong Kong that is served hot and often rolled up like a cone and filled with fruit and other sweet goodness.
It took a few tries to get the feel for how long to let them cook and when to flip the Bubble Waffle maker over. If you try them, I do recommend do a test batch to get a feel for it and to see how long it takes to get them to the nice golden color you see here. My best batch worked well with just under 2 minutes on the first side, then flipping it over for another 2 minutes.
The little puffs pop apart very easily so you can just pop them in your mouth and enjoy. I'm still working on some ideas for fillings, so for now we kept it pretty simple. These sweet bubbles of goodness can be served with powdered sugar or dipped in your favorite syrup.
