CucinaPro Bubble Waffler: Enjoy a tasty treat that's been transported all the way from the sidewalk vendors of Hong Kong with this Cucina Pro Bubble Waffler. This unique waffle maker creates a large hexagon shaped waffle which has a unique bubbled texture. These delicious waffles, sometimes called egg waffles or eggettes have crispy golden outsides and light, tender interiors. An eggette is a kind of spherical pancake or ball waffle popular in Hong Kong and Macao. The food item is also referred to as an egg puff, egg waffle, bubble waffle or by its Cantonese name, gai daan and is made from eggs, sugar, flour, and light evaporated milk. They are best served hot, and often eaten plain. They can also be served with fruit and flavors such as strawberry, coconut or chocolate.They are sometimes referred to as "Hong Kong cakes" in Chinatowns across America, especially in New York. Eggettes are one of the most popular Hong Kong "street snacks" and they have been a favoured street snack in HK since their emergence in 1950s and were made with coal fire heating, sold from street kiosks in Hong Kong in the early days. They are made from a sweet batter that is cooked on a hot griddle, a special frying pan with small round "wells" (resembling a Æbleskiver but with smaller and more of the round "wells") and with them set on hot coals in the fire or more commonly, on an electrical heat generator. The egg batter is poured over the special frying pan and heated; the small ovals of eggettes are thus formed. In addition to the conventional "egg taste", they are also available in a variety of flavours such as chocolate, green-tea and ginger, etc. Most pancakes are quick breads, although some are also made using a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Eggettes can be eaten at different times of the day depending on local tradition.

Like most small electric appliances, it can't be submerged in water. Before the first use, to ensure anything left on the surface after manufacturing is removed, wipe the interior with a damp, slightly soapy paper towel and follow it immediately with another damp towel to wipe up any and all soap residue. Normally, this is an instruction found in the user's guide, but it was not mentioned.
To make a waffle first spray both plates of the interior surface with a cooking oil spray - I used Trader Joe's coconut oil which worked beautifully. I avoid sprays that contain silicone because that is not the best thing to consume, and it often leaves a sticky coating that is difficult to remove. The instructions state to spray the plates before heating up the unit, and to do this every time the waffle maker is used. One good spray lasted through the entire batch of batter. Of course, a pastry brush to distribute oil over the surface may be used but it does take longer.
Next, close up the unit and plug it in. The red light is lit when it is plugged in. The green light comes on when the unit is preheated and ready to go. Put in enough batter to fill one side of the bubble indentations and lightly cover the plate surrounding them with a thin layer. To keep clean-up to a minimum, try to limit the batter to just that area - and avoid the over-flow track around the perimeter. A silicone spatula can be quickly swiped across the surface to level and evenly spread the batter.
The surface is hot and the cooking begins almost immediately so moving quickly is a good goal. I discovered using a plastic squeeze bottle filled with batter (like those red and yellow mustard/ketchup dispensers) to load the iron worked well. Close, but don't latch the lid and then gently flip the iron over so the batter is transferred to the other waffle plate.
Three minutes cooking time resulted in, for my taste, the perfectly cooked bubble waffle. There is no timer or indicator light on the appliance that announces doneness - I used an oven timer. The only problem I encountered was when I forgot to let the maker heat up again between waffles and just pulled one out and immediately added more batter.
That one needed more time to cook because the maker was no longer hot enough. So, after removing a finished bubble waffle, close the lid and wait for the green light indicating the unit is ready to cook before adding batter.With that one adjustment, I had nothing but perfect results with soft bubbles and a crunchy surrounding area. Time can be adjusted by adding or subtracting a bit in either direction for less or more cooking time but three minutes seemed perfect.
I did not care for the recipe included with the unit, so I scoured the internet and was not entirely happy with what I found there either, so I ended up adapting a recipe with changes that resulted in a bubble waffle closer to what I think is a more authentic taste. If interested, I've included my recipe at the end of the review.
I also looked into this mysterious "custard powder" ingredient included in some of the recipes. I almost just ordered the custard powder but after searching chef sites for details about its make-up it largely consists of ingredients already included in the basic batter less some chemicals. So, I eliminated it although accounted for it through slight increases in applicable ingredients.
The lights on the top of the waffle maker don't indicate when a waffle is done, unlike some standard waffle irons. The red light confirms the appliance is plugged in and the green light indicates it is pre-heated and ready to begin cooking. The green light can come on and go off during cooking and cannot be relied on to indicate doneness. Use a timer to know when to remove the waffle.
Metal utensils should not be used with the unit to avoid damage to the non-stick surface. When I was done with the batch I waited for the maker to cool down and then gave it a quick wipe with a damp paper towel to remove any crumbs or residue. If any batter overflows and gets stuck in any crevices of the unit, a wooden bamboo skewer works well to remove anything in the cracks and seams.
This s a specialty appliance and like electric pizzelle irons there are not many choices. This one is decidedly without bells and whistles, but it worked well. It also removes the guess work of using a manual bubble waffle iron which I imagine has a much steeper learning curve since cooking depends upon the heat of the iron and the heat at the burner rather than that contained within the electric maker. I will update the review if I encounter any quality problems, but for now I am very pleased with the purchase.
Recipe M's Bubble Waffle Batter - one batch makes five bubble waffles
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons evaporated milk
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
Combine cake flour, baking powder and cornstarch and whisk to blend dry ingredients together.
In a separate bowl whisk sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil until well incorporated then gradually add the water and milk. Slowly add the dry ingredients, whisking as you go. If possible put batter into a squeeze bottle for ease of dispensing. After spraying both plates of the waffle maker with cooking spray, close lid (don't latch), plug it in and wait for the green light to indicate it is done pre-heating.
Squeeze batter into the center of the plate and use a silicone spatula to quickly spread into and over the indentations leaving a thin coating over the plate. Try to avoid getting excess in the overflow tray. Lower the lid (don't latch) and gently flip iron over so the batter will flow into the other plate. Set a timer for three minutes and check doneness. Checking earlier may split the bubble waffle so try to wait the full three minutes and make adjustments from there. Use silicone fork or spatula to remove waffle. Before starting next bubble waffle, close up unit until green light reappears.
I found that using oil like recommended was better than using butter to coat the bubbles since it doesn’t last very long. Cooking was pretty quick. I don’t like that as soon as I shut it, there would be a lot of spillage. Also, it didn’t quite rise as I’d like to conform to the top bubble. So it was either flat or a semi-flat, semi round. It also didn’t cook quite as evenly as I’d like. Cleaning is a whole other thing altogether. The bubbles and surface was fine but if there was spillage, that was a bit more difficult. Overall, I’d give a 4 out of 5.
