No-Sugar Sugar Cone BowlsJun 29 2011 by
You know that smell that hits you when you walk up to a fair or festival? The one that’s sweet and buttery and draws you to it like a magnet? That’s the smell of sugar cones (or waffle cones) being made and waiting to be filled with rich and creamy ice cream. Why am I torturing you like this you ask? That isn’t healthy food! It is now with these No-Sugar Sugar Cone Bowls. Even healthy eaters can now enjoy the taste of those special summertime treats.
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 4 tbsp unsalted pasture butter, melted
- 2-3 tbsp 2% or whole milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- pinch of fine sea salt
- oil to brush skillet
- In a medium size bowl whisk the eggs and syrup until well blended.
- Whisk in the melted butter, milk and vanilla.
- Add the flour and salt and whisk until the batter is smooth. The batter should be very thin so add a little more milk if too thick.
- Heat a small skillet over medium heat and coat lightly with oil (I put a little oil on a paper towel and rub it in the pan).
- Pour a scant 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet and swirl around to form a thin circle (like making crepes).
- Turn heat to low and cook until you can see the edges and bottom turn golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Don’t rush, let them cook slowly on low heat so they get crispy when removed.
- Flip and cook the other side until browned.
- Remove the crepe and arrange it over a small heat safe bowl. Hold the crepe down over the bowl for a few seconds until it holds into place. Be careful it will be hot. The crepe will harden and turn crispy as it cools.
- Fill with Frozen Custard or your favorite ice cream and enjoy the taste of summer.

The bowls are best eaten right after making. They will soften after a few hours. I have found that you can re-crisp them by placing the softened bowl on a heated dry skillet (it will flatten back out), heat through and then place back onto a mold to harden again.
