Ice Cream in Waffle Cones


Nem csak a fagyi készül házilag, de ez az isteni tölcsér is. Próbáljátok ki ti is gyorsan :)

Despite the official end of summer, National Ice Cream Cone Day continues celebrating on September 22nd in the USA.

While some controversy exists as to who invented the ice cream cone, the earliest mention shows up in French cookbooks around 1825. Originally referred to as “little waffles,” the cones were waffles rolled into the shape of a cone.

In the United States, ice cream cones first became popular in the late 1800s. Confectioners turned the first cones by hand. The ice cream cone made its debut at the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904. In 1912, an inventor from Oregon obtained a patent for a machine to make them. He sold his company to Nabisco in 1928, and they still make ice cream cones today.

Ice Cream Cone FAQ

Besides the waffle cone, are there other types of ice cream cones?
Yes. Ice cream cones come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavors. Cake cones are baked in a mold usually have a flat bottom. Pretzel cones, chocolate cones, chocolate dipped cones and cookie cones all offer an edible vessel to eat our ice cream from.

What’s a penny lick?
During the Victorian era, ice cream vendors sold a scoop of ice cream for a penny in a small stemmed glass with a conical top. Called a penny lick, they look a bit like a stemmed shot glass. The customer would lick the ice cream out of the glass and return it to the vendor.

Besides being a delicious addition to the ice cream treat that you’re holding in your hand; every time you eat ice cream in a cone you’re doing the planet a favor by not using a plastic, disposable spoon and cup. So, love the planet and enjoy your ice cream at the same time — it’s almost like you can have your cake and eat it, too!

Serves: 6-8

Calories: 552

Fat: 31g

Saturated fat: 16g

Suitable for freezing: ice cream only

for the ice cream:

  • 300ml carton double cream
  • 4tbsp icing sugar
  • 500ml carton custard

for the waffle cones:

  • 200g plain flour
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 4tbsp milk
  • 2tbsp sunflower oil  
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • Oil, for greasing
  • 6-8 Flake 99s
  • Ice cream cone maker

1. To make the ice cream, whisk the double cream with the icing sugar, until it thickens and forms soft peaks, then fold in the custard. Freeze the mixture, either in an ice cream machine or tip it into a suitable container and freeze it – but beat it well during freezing, so large ice crystals don’t form in it. If using an ice cream machine, transfer the mixture to a suitable container once it’s almost completely frozen and leave in the freezer until just before serving.

2. To make the cones, sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Lightly beat together the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat this into the flour mixture to give a smooth batter.

3. Heat the ice cream cone maker. Spoon 1-2tbsp batter on to the greased plate and spread it out slightly, then pull the top section over it and press it down. Cook for 3-4 mins, until the waffle is golden.

4. As soon as it’s cooked, remove the waffle from the maker and wrap it quickly around the cone former, using kitchen roll to help protect your fingers, as it will be hot. Leave it to cool around the former until it’s firm enough to hold its shape. Remove the former and cook the remaining batter in the same way.

5. Remove the ice cream from the freezer about 20-30 mins before serving, to allow it to soften. Scoop into the cones and press a flake into each before serving.
