  • 2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 splash pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, melted


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and salt and set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved and the eggs are well beaten and a pale yellow in color.
  • Add the eggs along with the vanilla extract and milk to the flour/salt mixture. Use a rubber spatula to combine but not fully mixed. Pour in the melted (and cooled) butter and finishing mixing until combined.
  • Preheat your waffle cone maker. Follow packaging instructions for cooking and wether to spray or not.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the waffle batter into the middle of waffle maker. Close the lid and cook for a minute or two (depending on the manufacturers instructions). NOTE: In order for my waffles to get thin enough. I have to press on the top using a kitchen towel so I don't burn myself.
  • Gently press the warm waffles into a small bowl and let cool. Alternatively, use a cone mold to shape the warm waffles into ice cream cones. IF MAKING CONES: You will need to hold the waffle cones in place until they've cooled for a bit, so they don't unravel.
  • Remove waffle bowls (or cones) to a parchment paper lined, rimmed baking sheet. Cool completely before serving.
