When I was little, there was an old lady that sold waffle tubes at the market. I think she was the most popular lady at the whole market, because she would sell out of these within the first hour, so it was always a game to snatch one before she sold out. They were long, filled with dulce de leche filling all the way in the middle and delicious beyond my ability to describe.
Waffle Lady was a very distant relative of ours and while she did not give out the exact recipe, she did share the list of ingredients. I remember my mom trying to recreate the recipe and no matter how much we tweaked the proportions, they just wouldn’t taste the same.
About 6 years ago, I was visiting one of the recipe forums and someone posted a picture of similar waffles. I was 8 months pregnant with my first daughter and the picture of these beauties would not leave my mind. I didn’t have the waffle maker at the time, so I went and ordered this Waffle Cone Maker on Amazon, and the experimentation began. I don’t remember how many batches it took to finally get the right proportions, but oh the joy when I finally got it! They were just like the ones that I had as a kid, crispy, but not hard, lightweight, but with some body, with just the right amount of sweetness – perfect if you ask me!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family has!
