Peanut Butter (and Jam) Bubble Waffles

Peanut butter egg wafflesOh man, do I love waffles. They are the fancy layer cake of the breakfast table (pancakes are the sheet cake, obvs). I got really excited when I learned about bubble waffles (also called egg waffles). I love crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside waffles (like Belgian), so these looked right up my alley. Peanut butter and jelly wafflesI like to think of these as taco waffles, since you can fill them with fresh fruit and fold them up. Which is perfect because these are peanut butter waffles! So feel free to fill them with your favorite jam or berries.Egg yolksPeanut Butter Bubble Waffles, makes 3-4.
Recipe adapted from the instructional booklet my waffle maker came with.

2 egg yolks
3 egg whites
3/4 cup cake flour
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

Separate the eggs and discard one of the yolks (or save it if you’re making scrambled eggs or something later). How to make bubble wafflesIn a large bowl sift together the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in the egg yolks, milk, and melted (and slightly cooled) butter. Stir together. Add the peanut butter and stir until creamy.

In the bowl containing the egg whites, whisk the eggs until they become foamy/frothy. Gently fold these into the batter until just combined.

Pour about 1/3 cup of batter into the ready waffle iron and cook according the directions.How to make egg wafflesMy CucinaPro bubble waffle maker’s instructions directed me to flip the maker just after pouring the batter. Weird, right?

You could also use this batter in a Belgian waffle maker, so don’t feel like you HAVE to have the exact same waffle maker as me. Whatever waffle maker you use just follow the manufacturer’s directions, as cook time may vary slightly.Peanut butter wafflesIf you want your waffle to be a little easier to fold, here’s a tip. As you remove it from the waffle maker drape it over a drinking glass turned on its side. The waffle will gently fold around the glass as it cools. This will help you avoid rips and tears.Peanut butter bubble wafflesServe warm filled with fruit or jam, and maybe a little Nutella. Yum! Enjoy. xo. Emma

  • Hi just a curious question …. Which photo editing app did you use on the pictures?? Its so eye catching!

  • You can use a grill frying pan (the pans that have sort of ridges that make grill marks on stuff), you just have to flip the waffle when one side is done (like a pancake!)

  • Awww, I’m a german foodblogger and I HAVE TO BUY this waffle maker! Aaaand one click later I bought it on amazon, it’s so cool and fancy! Thanks for the idea and the recipe (I love peanut butter!!) :>

  • What a beautiful blog! (and beautiful waffles, which goes without saying!) I love your homemade notebooks in a later post … they seem so easy, but such a cool gift idea. Thank you for the inspiration!

  • That looks really good! I always add peanut butter chips and oatmeal to my mix.

  • yum!!! i need a waffle maker ASAP!


  • These are absolutely adorable! I love the little bubbles so much! I might have to get one of those cute makers!


  • These are so beautiful. And I’m sure they’re calorie-free, too!

  • Haha I have not seen such a thing as a bubble waffle before. What a fun design.

  • They look reaaaly good!!! perfecto for a Sunday morning.
    If you love waffels you should come to Belgium they are also good.


  • I am beyond excited to try this recipe out! I once tried a peanut butter pancake, and failed miserably! It was so chewy and dry…ha so better luck to me this time!

  • Hello and good evening!

    very nice photos of your lovely peanut butter (and jam) Bubble Waffles:-)
    I have never seen them bubbled! But beautyful.

    I was lucky to taste my friends carrot/apple cupcakes:
    Not bad.

    Must try to find Waffeles………..

  • Oh I’ve seen this lots where I’m from (singapore) though it originated in Hong Kong. I’ve never heard of them being called bubble waffles though. We usually call them by its Chinese name but in English it would be more commonly known as egglets instead. I love plucking off the “egglets” one by one to eat! 🙂

    I believe the reason why you have to flip the waffle maker over after pouring in the batter is so the rest of the batter can drip to the other side to cook, forming a complete spherical shape. This leaves the inside of the individual egglets airy and fluffy and the outside crispy. It’s sort of like how takoyaki balls are made if you’ve ever seen them being made. I believe normal waffle makers work differently as the shape of the waffle “presses” the batter up into the gaps of the other side the waffle maker when the waffle maker is closed. The shape of the egglet waffle maker can’t allow for this as it has more circular dents in it than protruding elements.

    It’s also interesting how you’ve served it with fruit and jam as I’ve never really seen it served that way here. Probably because it is more of a street food than a breakfast item. The egglets we have here come with flavours though! Like cheese or pandan or chocolate. They also add fillings to the egglets, something like how they add fillings to takoyaki, making it extra delicious. Maybe you can try it the next time you make these bubble waffles again! 🙂 🙂

  • This looks amazing!

  • I always get bubble waffles when I’m in Taiwan or Hong Kong! I live in China, so I’ve been on a bit of a withdrawal. Thank you so much for this recipe!

  • I am Belgian and didn’t know these existed! I need them in my life, thank you!

  • I love pb&j and love waffles! I think I’ll have to buy a waffle maker to try out this combo!

  • They look so yummy! 🙂 I love raspberries.

  • Cutest waffles I have ever seen! How have I not heard of these before?!

  • I love me some waffles and this bubble waffle maker is ADORABLE! I’ll probably use this recipe in my own waffle maker (which is just as functional, but slightly less cute).


  • I felt my stomach grumble while browsing through the photos. This looks so yummy!

    xo Trisha

  • These look soo yummy! Anything with PB&J pretty much gets my seal of approval 🙂

  • This is so awesome, absolutely adorable!! I want one! However, don’t think ill be able to find one in Barbados.. 🙁 Ah, cons of living the island life 😛

  • I’m wondering the same thing!
    The only thing I’ve seen is waffle-molds that you can put into the oven.

    Ah waffles, lucky me I live in Belgium :p. Or not so lucky, because the temptation is everywhere!

    These bubble-waffles look funny and delicious, Emma, thank you.

  • What a way to start your morning! Look delicious and I will have to try these for the kiddos!

  • Well, that looks INCREDIBLE. Maybe I need to add ‘bubble waffle maker’ to the increasing assortment of ludicrous gadgets assembled in my poor little kitchen! xoxo
    The perks of being a hipster

  • Oh god, this looks bloody awesome! YUM!

  • You could buy silicone bakeware for waffles.
    We simply love them because they are so easy to use with your oven or microwave and cleaning up afterwards is not such a mess!
    I am not sure where you can find ’em in the UK (Lekue Waffle Mould).
    Hope I could help!

  • I HAVE to buy a waffle maker, I don’t know how I’ve lasted this long without one.

  • Got to get one of these gadgets for my kids ( and me!) this recipe looks awesome

  • Wow! How have I never heard of bubble waffles before?! I need to get me some! 🙂

  • Looks lovely, at i think they taste good too 🙂 I haven´t seen a bubble maker before, and would like to have one, when i bake a lot of waffels, but I don´t think we can get it here in Europe 🙁

  • These egg waffles are everywhere on the streets in Hong Kong (where I live!) and they’re always sold alongside peanut butter and condensed milk waffles of the normal kind, but no one ever thought to put condiments on egg waffles.. pretty genius!

  • Reading about waffles so close to lunch makes me sooo hungry haha! xx
    Need to try this out! 😀

    – C:ndy

  • Man, I need to make these babies! Now if I only had a waffle maker *sigh*. When I do get one, I will be trying this recipe out!

  • I’m so excited to see this post! having eaten egg waffles throughout my childhood 🙂

  • I never had bubble waffles ..they look delish! Great post, I am going to try this recipe out.

  • They’re all over the Vancouver Chinese night markets too – definitely thought they were a Chinese delicacy 😉

  • These remind me of aebelskivers:the Danish round pancakes. Yummy looking.

  • Just starting to cook on my own here and saw this yummy post! Will follow and hope you visit me at

  • Oh god that looks delicious. I can’t wait for tomorrow morning to arrive so I can try this!
    Have an amazing day 🙂

  • I wouldn’t consider these to be waffles in the traditional Western sense, and certainly aren’t designed to be eaten like them… They’re a Hong Kong street snack that are served in paper bags, and you’re supposed to eat them by tearing off the little eggs one by one. This recipe looks yummy, but to me (a person of HK heritage) covering the ‘waffle’ with toppings and eating them off a plate (with utensils?!) seems absurd haha.

  • This waffle maker is some kind of unicorn of waffle makers. Just when you thought there wasn’t a way to improve the beauty of them. LOVE the presentation and styling. I’m always working on improving that. When I hear people complain about food photos on Instagram, I’m stunned. lol I could look at the good ones all day long.

  • Oh how creative! This particular style of waffle is a famous street food item in Hong Kong (see explanation: I never thought to call it bubble waffles!

  • This looks so good! Ahhh, I want one now… x

  • Oh my!! This looks soooooo yummmeeh <3 I need to give this a try! <3 Thank you alot dear for sharing!~^_^ <3

  • I’ve never heard of bubble waffles before but absolutely love these!

    Xx Milly

  • These are similiar to Taiwanese waffles! I love them and they’re so fun to eat!

  • Oh my goodness! This looks delicious. I have been looking for more breakfast recipes and I think i just found one for the weekend! Thanks for sharing, yum!!

  • Oh, those waffles look amazing! I love to get butter in all the little nooks of my waffles. Delicious.

  • I love waffles but have not tried PEANUT BUTTER WAFFLES! I think I’ll give them a try this week. 🙂

  • Oh my goodness this is my dream breakfast. A PB + J waffle! I am adding a bubble waffle maker on my list of things to buy. Beautiful photos too you guys have such great food styling talents!


  • You guys have been posting awesome content the last couple of weeks. Especially loved the kiddo garden and bathroom stencil – keep up the great work! 🙂

  • I’ve never seen bubble waffles before!! They look amazing! But I don’t know if I can fit another appliance in my tiny apartment, even if they are cute, haha!

  • I actually have a silicone pan to make waffles in the oven. It is not perfect and sometimes it gets a bit sticky but I really can’t have another appliance sitting around.

  • This is such a neat addition to your kitchen! I’d love to eat these on a weekend brunch date. Load on the strawberries 🙂

  • I don’t have a bubble waffle maker, but i have a regular waffle maker. and the thought of peanut butter waffles with fruit and powdered sugar telling me to get off the couch and make dinner instead of settling for sandwich ready tuna…again 🙂

  • bubble waffles??? i’ve never heard of this amazingness before. they look so fun and delicious!
    xo jac

  • I grew up eating these from a street vendor in NYC’s Chinatown – I always thought they were Chinese 🙂

  • Mmm these look delicious! I love some good raspberries. Oh the things I would do to wake up to this breakfast every day!

  • i love waffles! if you ever have a chance to go to a bruxie you must!! best waffle sandwiches ever.

  • Hmmm… not that I know of. There are LOTS of different kinds of waffle makers though. Electric, stove top, expensive, cheap, cute, regular…. a million different kinds. 🙂


  • Silly question but is there any way to make waffles without a waffle maker?
