But What About a Waffle Maker?
Here are a couple of our favourites! These ones will yield picture perfect Mickey Waffles for breakfast, breakfast for dinner — whatever!
Mickey Mouse Red Waffle Maker
There is a whole host of Mickey Red kitchen ware available, so why not make your first piece the waffle maker.The mickey shaped indicator light even tells you when your maker is hot enough to start pouring.
Mini Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker
So far, all we have been able to find, at a reasonable price, that produces proper thick Mickey shaped waffles (and are actually in stock) is from Shop Disney. Retailing at $65 USD they are more expensive than the Amazon pancake/waffles but they are as close to the real thing as one is going to get.
Minnie Mouse Waffle Makers
As with the Mickey waffle maker, these aren’t as thick as you would expect from waffles. This is roughly the size of a large pancake, but still in the great shape of giant Mickey’s and Minnies.
Waffle Maker Recipe From Scratch
If you are anything like me and prefer to have your waffles made from scratch, instead of premixed (personal preference, no big deal), then here is the alternative recipe for those perfect Mickey Waffles.
- 4 Egg Separated
- 1-2 tbsp Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/4 cup Melted butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- Beat egg yolks in a large bowl until the sugar is thoroughly mixed and the yolks are thick and sunny colored. Add the milk, cooled melted butter, and vanilla extract and stir until combined. Then add all at once flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well, but be sure not to overmix (overmixed batter will be frothy with lots of bubbles). If the mixture is too thick, add more milk until the mixture resembles that of thick pudding.
- In a separate bowl, using a mixer, beat egg whites until stiff. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter. DO NOT MIX.
- Bake, following the instructions of your waffle maker until golden brown. Please note, these waffles rise and expand considerably so use the least amount of batter needed for desired results. For those using a lock-lid waffle maker, this is especially important. For results that most resemble Mickey waffles as served at Disney World, use a Belgian waffle maker.
- Serve with a variety of toppings, including butter, powdered sugar, syrup, chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, whipped cream, strawberries or other fruits, even ice cream and sprinkles.
