rosette waffles from {nifty thrifty things}

Aren't those just the prettiest waffles?! They're so delicate and beautiful looking.. And delicious! ;)

My mom and grandma discovered the rosette waffle iron hidden somewhere in the back corner of my grandma's kitchen last year. She inherited it from her mom; my great-grandma.

They made these waffles for my hubby's birthday (which was back in November), but I'm just now getting around to posting it. I hope you like them as much as I did. Yum!

Aren't those just the prettiest waffles?! They're so delicate and beautiful looking.. And delicious! ;) My mom and grandma …

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-3 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • canola oil
  • powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Make the batter by mixing all the ingredients.
  2. Heat up the oil in a heavy saucepan.
  3. Heat rosette iron by submerging in hot oil and let the excess oil drip off.
  4. Dip immediately into the batter, just so that the top edge is even with the surface of the batter. Leave the iron in the batter for 4-5 seconds.
  5. Submerge the iron in the hot oil. It will take about 30 seconds to cook.
  6. Take the rosette out of the oil and let the excess oil drip back into the pot.
  7. Place the rosettes onto a paper towel.
  8. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

    They’re so pretty. I have never seen or heard of using irons before. I am going to keep my eye out for one.

    Almost to beautiful to eat, but since I am a waffle lover, I would have to dig in. Have never heard of that type of waffle iron before. Very interesting!

    In Ohio, Sugar Waffles are one of the most popular treats at festivals and county fairs. My favorite. When I moved to Indiana, no one seemed to know what they are. Finally, when it came up again today, I found a photo. Now everyone wants to try them. I have a small rosette iron, but at fairs the waffles are so much larger I haven’t tried my iron. I have found a company very near where I grew up in Ohio that has the larger irons…now I’m on a mission.

    I found this iron thing for the waffels in our household supply store and always hesitated if I should buy that piece. But if you tell me the waffles are tasting so well then I will go and get that and give it a try. They’re looking so very old-fashioned and lovely.
