Mini Donuts and Waffle Bakers - Let's Call Them Maffles

Updated on November 19, 2017

Waffle Maker

I have a waffle maker sitting in a drawer, in a dresser, upstairs. I had a random thought about waffles, but then, I have been dreaming about donuts. My husband came home the other day and said that when he stopped at a grocery store, there was a woman making samples, using a grill. The item she was making was a small waffle cone, filled with a snack size Hershey's chocolate bar and some mini marshmallows.

You guessed it. She was making S'mores. She had four of those waffle cones stabbed on a skewer and she had the marshmallows and chocolate bars tucked into the cones. Then, she put them on the grill and cooked them for a bit, until the insides were melty.

Hubby said that they were pretty good.

I am just taking this one step backwards or forwards and making just the waffle part. But, using a baked donut recipe.

Waffle Iron is Ready

I mixed up my batter, and heated up my waffle baker for about four minutes. The very important part about a waffle maker, is that it needs to be hot before you start. It needs to sear your eggs so that it keeps all the moisture in.

I put a golf ball sized glop in the center of the waffle iron and shut the lid. The first try was 3 minutes. It was slightly burnt. So, I tried 2 minutes. It was still slightly browned, so I went with a minute and a half. That was okay. Golden brown, with a slight browning, but not bad.

Then, I put it on a paper towel covered cookie sheet. The recipe said to take the baked Maffles and dip them in melted butter so that the sugar and cinnamon that you would put on the outside would stick. I used I Can't Believe it's Not Butter spray.

The Maffles aren't your Krispy Kreme variety of donut. No, they are more of the 1960's cake donut. I remember my older brothers and sisters making homemade donuts in the deep fryer when I was a little kid. You know the drill: mom and dad would leave the house and the deep fryer and all the ingredients would come out, and by the time mom and dad returned, there would be 5 kids munching on homemade donuts.

I did the same thing with chocolate chip cookies when I got to that age. Smile.

Now, I have maffles.

      Yes. It is thick. A glop in the middle. It spreads. Not too short, or it will stick, too long and it will burn. Gotta find that happy medium timing. A minute.

      Oh so the waffle batter should be thick not diluted?
