One of my favorite street food in Hong Kong is egg waffles (you may called it bubble waffle). They are tiny ball-shaped waffles, fluffy inside but crispy on the outside, you pull them apart and eat them one by one, yummy. I used to buy them everyday after school for snack, the hawker made them fresh to order, so I got to watch and learn how to make it and observed the flipping technique.
I am so glad to find the Egg Waffle Pan(buy it here) in the USA finally, making this yummy street food at home, serving my girls my favorite treat. The best part , I got to see their happy faces when they stuffed their mouth full of little waffles. They enjoyed watching mommy make the cute yummy waffle balls, just like I used to watch the hawker cooked them in the street, like mother like daughters. They learned stories about mommy’s school life in Hong Kong, and how to say egg waffles in Cantonese (雞蛋仔，which pronounces “kite down jei “), it was so much fun.
Hong Kong Style Egg Waffles Recipe (Make 4)
3 Large Eggs
6 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cups Cake Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 cup Water
Hong Kong Style Egg Waffle Pan
1 Large Bowl
1 Medium Bowl
Small Silicone Spatular
Metal Rack (for cooling)
2. Mix cake flour and baking powder in another bowl, sift and set aside.
3. Add 1/3 of flour mix and 1/4 cup of water into eggs mixture, whisk until well combined.
4. Repeat step 3 two times until all ingredients well cooperated.
5. Heat both sides of waffle pan over medium heat until hot, rub a little vegetable oil over the surface to avoid sticking.
6. Pour just less than 1 cup of batter in the middle on one side, place the other pan on top and flip it over immediately, shake and juggle them together while rotating your wrist (to spread the batter inside more evenly), place on the stove and cook for 2 minutes.
1. You may need to play with your stove heat setting for best result. Every stove heat setting is different, my stove’s medium heat may not be the same temperature as yours. For example, my stove reaches 300F degrees at medium heat setting, while yours may reach higher (320F) or lower degree (285F).
2. If egg waffles are not golden brown, increase heat and/or cook time, continuously flip the pan every now and then, until both sides are golden brown.
3. Practice makes prefect. I tried quite a few batches before I found the right heat setting and timing for the perfect egg waffles. You may need to give it a few trials as well before you find that perfect combination.
