Vanilla Waffle Cones

On a hot summer’s day, when you’re serving up home-made ice cream to cool down friends and family, what better way to present it than in home-made waffle cones?

Made using the Zoku Waffle Cone Maker


  • 2 Large egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar (Icing Sugar 94g)
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (64g)
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil, or nonstick cooking spray for cooking plates


  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar, beat until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in vanilla and remaining sugar. Fold in flour and cooled butter until incorporated.
  2. Heat waffle cone maker until green ready light turns one.  Brush/spray the cooking plates with oil. Place a heaping tablespoon of batter in the center of the cooking plate. Gently close the lid. Allow to cook 2-5 minutes until golden.
  3. Remove waffle with a plastic or wooden spatula. While the waffle is warm, carefully roll it with included cone roller into a cone shape. Repeat process with remaining batter. Let cones cool. Store in an airtight container.

Chocolate-Cone Variation: Reduce flour to 1/4 cup (32g) and add with 1/4 cup (30g) cocoa, sifted, to butter in step 1.
