Ice cream cones

Ever since I've started making my own ice cream I've had a hankering for a waffle cone maker. At last I have obtained one (2nd hand - they don't seem to be available in the shops any more) and last night had my first attempt at making some.

The result was a nice crisp cone. Next time I might turn down the thermostat a bit though as they came out with a dark ring where the element is on the maker. Lower heat for longer might be the answer to a more even colour.

In any case we each gobbled one down with a generous scoop or 2 of home made vanilla ice cream. Yum!

I had no idea there was such a thing. Now I want one too ;)

Hi Joanna
Yes, they're basically a waffle iron that makes very thin waffles then you roll them using a cone shaped tool and they harden on cooling.
Not sure if you can obtain one in the UK, from searching the web it seems they are available mainly in the US. I contacted the company here (Breville) and they told me they no longer make them. Good luck.
cheers Bridget
