The bubble waffle maker has finally arrived! Always wanted to own one of these. Now I can make my own bubble waffles!
Materials: Eggs, flour, sugar, custard powder, butter, buttermilk, vanilla and beer.
Originally I thought this was going to make two. Turns out this could make six, but I didn’t mix it properly so I could only make four.
First one! I intentionally overcooked it coming in at five minutes. From there I go down and figure out the optimal time without undercooking (which makes it messy to deal with)
Second one was four minutes and it was still a little over cooked…
Third one was three minutes, that was pretty good. Now I just need to learn how to pour the batter on correctly.
Forth one was worse because I ran out of usable batter and spreaded it too thin.
Taste – 7/10
Structure – 5/10
Look – 3/10
Where a 10/10 would mean it is exactly like a bubble waffle from Hong Kong.
Ingredients in specific:
Custard powder: 20g
Butter milk: 20ml
Concentrated Vanilla: A few drops
The economy of making your own bubble waffles
Eggs – $0.23
Flour – $0.08
Sugar – $0.03
Custard powder – $0.13
Butter – $0.05
Buttermilk – $0.2
Vanilla – $0.07
Beer – $0.01
Total = $0.8 CAD
If you buy it from a shop = $5 CAD
But we have to consider the cost of the bubble waffle machine. Which is = $50CAD
$5 – $0.8 = $4.2 CAD saved per waffle.
$50 / $4.2 = 12. Therefore we need to make 12 waffles before the waffle maker pays for itself.
After that, we will be making bubble waffles at a low low price of $0.8 CAD/waffle. This is without bulk pricing. If we purchase our materials in bulk (larger sizes), we can lower the cost even more. Therefore $0.8 CAD/waffle here represents our worst case scenario.
