Egg Waffles 4 or Gai Daan Jai

Egg Waffles 4 or Gai Daan Jai created by Ambervim

Popular street food in Hong Kong. These are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Gai Daan Jai (Tsai) means Little Chicken Eggs. Other names include Puffe, Bubble Waffle, Eggettes, Egg Puffs and I am sure there are other names. Served for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Either served flat or rolled with fruit in the center. You must have a special egg waffle pan to make these. You can find a nice one at Williams Sonoma.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Preheat both sides of the waffle pan and grease the pan with some oil.
  • When the waffle pan is hot, pour batter into one side, covering all the holes but leaving one row empty.
  • Place the other side of the pan on top and flip immediately.
  • Cook for about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes, depending on how hot your stove is.
  • Flip the pan and cook for another 3 1/2 to 4 minutes.
  • Transfer the waffle to a plate to cool and enjoy while it is still hot.
  • Time is each egg waffle. Watch carefully. You want them to be golden brown. May take less time.

    Made as directed, no tweaks. Flavor turned out great. Nice and custardy kind of on the inside the way it should be. It never really got super crunchy like the stuff you get at the food stalls, but I’m not sure if that is due to the recipe or my pan. Thx!
