I have always wanted one of those special appliances for making those thin crispy cookies perfect for ice cream cones and edible bowls. I found one at my local Gourmet Shop and I am in love!
Whip up this simple batter straight from the included recipe book:
Favorite German Krumkake Recipe
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 – 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
Boil the water. While it is cooling, add 1/4 cup butter to water and stir to melt the butter completely. Add 1/2 cup of sugar to the the water while still warm and stir to dissolve. Allow to cool.
Add one cup of flour and 1 egg to water mixture. Mix thoroughly while adding vanilla. Makes about a dozen cones or bowls. Use about 2 tablespoons per krumkake.
Pour batter on the heated griddle.
Close lid and cook about 90 seconds.
I wanted to made edible bowls so I found two bowl shaped items, one that fit inside the other. While the Krumkake is still piping hot place in the bowl.
Allow to cool slightly and remove.
I love these bowls!
It also came with a tool to make cones.
