A Bit of History...
The egg waffle, known in Cantonese as "gai daan zai”, is a treasured Hong Kong street snack that has acquired legendary status. It’s origins are lost in time but it was rumoured to have emerged as a post-war response to rationing. The egg waffle was seen as a hardy & nutritious way to keep full in those lean years.
As time went on and as the egg waffle became a Cathay institution it made the global leap and soon became known as the Bubble Waffle, for its little pockets of air. In the East it is usually served plain but in the West while the shape & form is maintained, with help of iron moulds, it soon began to be paired with gelato and other delicious toppings. It is on its way to becoming a global desert, Hong Kong’s gift to the World!
The Traditional Recipe
The waffles are made on an egg waffle maker, the magic batter is poured in when the machine is heated and flipped over. The waffle is good to go in under two minutes.
