  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup organic granulated sugar*
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup non-fat milk** 6 oz
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Rodelle vanilla extract
  • Butter or olive oil for brushing approximately 1 teaspoon
  • 1 pint ice cream
  • 2 bananas sliced
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries sliced
  • whipped cream optional
  • chocolate sauce optional


  1. Plug in the bubble egg waffle maker and preheat for 5 minutes

  2. Combine flour, sugar, cornstarch, and baking powder in a medium mixing bowl with a whisk.
  3. Add milk, eggs, olive oil, and vanilla extra, whisk until the wet and dry ingredients are combined and the batter doesn’t have any large lumps.
  4. When the batter is ready and the egg waffle maker light is green, I quickly rub a stick of butter on both sides of the hot bubble egg waffle mold or use a silicone brush to brush on olive oil.

  5. Work quickly to pour approximately ¼ cup of batter to the center of the egg waffle maker and use a heat proof spatula to even out the batter and so that the outer “bubbles” are at least partially filled (add 1-2 tablespoons more batter if needed).

  6. Lower the top lid of the waffle maker, grab both handles and flip the waffle maker over to coat the other side, and set a timer for 2 minutes. The waffles are ready when the top lid puffs up a tiny bit and you can see from the side that the waffles are golden brown.

  7. Remove the waffle from the egg waffle maker. (I find it easier to loosen it from the top lid onto the plate rather than lift it up from the bottom lid)

  8. Serve with ice cream and toppings, repeat with the remaining batter. 

Recipe Notes

*I use organic sugar because it tastes better. If you use conventional sugar, you might want to add an extra 1-2 tablespoons of sugar if desired. 

**If you don't have non-fat milk, you can use low-fat, whole milk, or other non-dairy milk, except don't use buttermilk ;)

Milk allergy: you can adapt this recipe by using olive oil instead of butter and dairy free milk instead of cow's milk. 

Actual calories may vary depending on the serving size and types of ice cream, fruit, and topping you use. One plain waffle is 328 calories.
