Homemade Waffle Ice Cream ConesPosted: May 25, 2013
You know what’s awesome? Home made ice cream. You know what’s even better? Home made ice cream served in home made waffle cones. That’s right. You can make waffle cones at home. They are super easy to make and are just as delicious as the ice cream parlour shop variety!
First things first, mix the milk and icing sugar together in a bowl.
For this recipe, I used Gold Forest Grain‘s Soft White Wheat (the lightest and fluffiest flour we have!)
Now here’s the tricky part. You need to roll the cone while it’s still hot and before it sets, so work fast! It’s going to be really hot, so be tough. There is a very small window of opportunity to do this step!
It’s all ready to hold a scoop of your favourite homemade ice cream – what’ll it be? Pistachio? White Chocolate Raspberry? Or Mint Chocolate Chip? I guess you’ll have to decide!I opted for a scoop of classic chocolate. What a perfect start to the summer!

- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 3.4 cups entire grain flour
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- In a medium bowl with a whisk or electric mixer, whip the cream and vanilla together until it is mousse-like. Sift the remaining dry ingredients together in another bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the cream and stir to make a batter. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the panini grill to medium high heat (about 375°F).
For each ice cream cone:
- Place a heaping tablespoonful of batter onto the grill and close the lid, completely pressing the batter. Grill for about 90 seconds or until the pressed cone is browned but still malleable; it will be an oblong shape. Carefully transfer the pressed cone to a cutting board or piece of waxed paper.
- Working quickly and carefully (the cone will be very hot!), roll the pressed cone into a cone shape.
- Set on a plate to dry and harden.
