Cook time: 1-3 minutes | Yield: 10 servings


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk


Preheat a waffle-cone maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Adjust as necessary, depending on the desired degree of brownness.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until the sugar is incorporated and the eggs have lightened in color, about 1 minute. Add the flour mixture and stir until incorporated. Add the butter and milk and stir just until combined.

Spoon a scant ¼ cup batter onto the waffle-cone maker. Using a small offset spatula, spread the batter evenly over the surface. Close the lid and cook for at least 1 minute before lifting the lid to check for doneness. Continue cooking until the desired color is reached, about 2 minutes.

Quickly remove the waffle from the waffle-cone maker and shape it around the cone roller. Hold the cone for a few seconds to set its shape. Set the cone on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Repeat with the remaining batter.
