    Serves: 8 

    • 2 eggs
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 50g butter, melted and cooled
    • 3 tablespoons milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 5 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until frothy. Whisk in the butter, milk and vanilla. Gradually whisk in the flour and salt until smooth. The batter should be thin; you can stir in more milk if needed.
    2. Heat a small frying pan or flat over medium heat. Brush the pan lightly with oil. Pour about 60ml (4 tablespoons) of batter onto the frying pan and turn to spread out the batter into a thin circle. When the underside is golden brown, flip over and cook until golden on the other side. Remove from the pan and form into a cone while it's hot, squeezing the end to seal. Place on a wire rack to cool and harden completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.

    YUM! The first cone I made didn't dry hard, so the next one, I made sure the heat was on medium-low and when the cone was slightly brown, I flipped it and pressed on it with my spatula so it browned evenly. It must get brown in order to dry hard. Flip it and press down on it again until it's nice and brown on both sides. Then, either shape it into a cone or put in in a small bowl so it's like a little cup. This was a fun recipe Thanx!  -  19 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My whole family enjoyed these cones. Mine turned out crispy. It takes quite a while to get the cones evenly browned. Next time I think I'll try it with a weight or baking them to get even browning faster. They must be shaped quickly so they don't crack in the process.  -  27 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had similar problems as other reviewers getting these to firm up. I suspect it has to do with the heat, but that's tricky; too low and it stays soft, too high and it burns (ask me how I know). I'm probably going to experiment a little bit to see if I can get a more consistent product. The taste is great, but I'd like to make the texture perfect too. Because I burned the first one, I turned the heat way down. I have an electric range, though, and it can be difficult to get good control. I ended up keeping the heat just a bit below medium to keep mine from burning, but they were still soft. I'll post again if I can get this to be perfect. Worth it, though; very tasty (even if a little greasy). My kids loved them.  -  07 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
