Chocolate Bubble Waffles

Chocolate Bubble Waffles (via A Beautiful Mess) I’m still obsessed with my bubble waffle maker! Today I thought I’d share a chocolate bubble waffle recipe with you all. Keep in mind that you can also use this same batter in a Belgian waffle maker. But whatever you do, be sure to fill (or top) these with sliced banana and Nutella.

Really, anything that goes well with chocolate goes well with these waffles. If you are making bubble waffles, I recommend folding them into a taco shape before filling as it makes it easier to eat.

Chocolate egg waffle recipeChocolate Bubble Waffles, makes 3-4.

3/4 cup cake flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/3 cup milk
3 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons melted butter
bananas and Nutella for serving

In a bowl combine the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps from the cake flower and cocoa, which tend to clump. Stir in the milk, egg yolks, vanilla extract and melted (but cooled) butter.

In an electric mixer beat the egg whites until very foamy/frothy. Gently fold the egg whites into the thick batter until just combined.

How to make bubble wafflesFollow your waffle iron manufacturer’s directions to cook the batter. If you’re making bubble waffles that you plan to fold and fill, I recommend draping cooked waffles over a glass just after they come out of the iron, like in the photo above. This helps them not crack when you’re ready to fold them later.

  • These are one of my favourite snacks when I’m in Hong Kong. They’re also known as ‘egg puffs’ and ‘eggettes’. They’re really good with chocolate chips thrown in the batter too!
    Another reason for letting them cool before wrapping them is that they’ll be crispier. Most good places that make these in Hong Kong succeed because they have good batter and crispy bubble waffles!

  • I love eggettes or puffles! They are crispy on the outside and slightly chewing on the inside. I never thought of treating it like a crepe, this is such an innovative twist! Thank you for sharing!

  • These waffles look so unbelievably delicious!


  • That looks amazeballs! But I don’t own a waffle maker. I don’t have an ice cream maker either. It’s for my own good. I don’t allow myself near those machines… I could be dangerous. I may or may not have an addiction to sweet everything. Sigh!

    When I was young, we lived in Asia and these were sold at malls everywhere, except filled with a coconutty custard. My mum would have a bag of of them waiting for me sometimes when I got home from school- SO GOOD!

  • Nooo don’t fold it up!! You’re supposed to break off the bubbles and eat them individually – that’s how you get to fully appreciate the crunching of the shell and the soft fluffy insides. This is how we do it in Hong Kong and believe me we know our bubble waffles 🙂

  • Oh wow these look absolutely delicious. I’d love to try these myself, I’ll try it myself one day.

  • Oh, these look too good! The waffles are exactly what they sell in Taiwan or Korea as street snacks, it is literally the best ever. You could even put in crumbled Oreos!
    But I really love that idea of wrapping it up with the banana inside. You tied it together too which is just perfect. I want one so bad now!

  • This is a great idea! Waffle irons are pretty much the most brilliant thing every invented, it’s amazing how much stuff you can do with them.


  • A bubble waffle maker? I must go google immediately! Anything with bananas and nutella are going to be amazing. But with chocolate waffles? Wow!! Top this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it sounds like a decadent dessert to me. You know, for those days you just need a little something.

  • I didn’t even know “bubble waffles” were possible. Where have I been all these years?!
