Hong Kong Style Egg Waffles Recipe

One of my favorite street food in Hong Kong is egg waffles. 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 how was it made and learned a little techniques here and there.

So glad to find the egg waffles pan in the USA finally, I can try to make this yummy street food at home. The best part is to see my girls 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.

Ingredients:

3                              Large Eggs
6 tablespoons       Vegetable Oil

1 teaspoon             Vanilla Extract

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.

      Hi Lae,

      Cake flour is lower in gluten compared to all purpose flour, it will make the waffles softer. You should be able to find it in regular grocery stores in US or baking goods stores in HK. If you can’t get it easily, you can substitute it with all purpose flour, just make sure don’t over folded the batter.
