Love Those Mickey Mouse Waffles!
My daughter and I stand happily with Mickey Mouse during our
February 2015 visit.

I am unashamedly a Disney Foodie. I love going to the Disney parks, and enjoying the Disney cuisine. Tasting the wonderful and varied park foods, enhance the overall Disney experience. Although, I can not be at Walt Disney World, or Disneyland everyday, I can cook Disney recipes at home, reliving the fun through the fabulous flavors.
I often check out the Disney section of my cookbook library at home.
(Yes, check out and library was my weak attempt at humor. :o))
Cooking with Mickey Around the World (with the red binding, shown above)
was my first Disney cookbook, and is one of my favorite cookbooks of all time.
One of the most iconic of Disney fare is the Mickey Waffle. It is a personal favorite of mine. A simple breakfast treat that never disappoints, a bite of a Mickey Waffle always brings a smile to ones face.
Just a small sample of the Mickey Waffles consumed by Yours Truly over the years. :o)
(It is even better with iced tea, as evidenced in the center photo.)
A few years ago, after a fun Walt Disney World visit, I began a quest to find a Mickey Mouse waffle iron of my own. Research revealed, that Vitantonio waffle makers, those closest to the variety used in the park, were no longer being manufactured. (Of course!) Research also revealed, that some three-pronged models of the Mickey waffle maker had been recalled due to bad wiring. See the recall here and here. Carefully checking the recall numbers against the ones for sale on eBay, I eventually snagged myself a genuine Mickey Mouse waffle iron! :o)
My handy dandy, two-pronged, Vitantonio Mickey’s Waffler was an eBay find.
Through the magic of the internet, and more specifically Pinterest, Mickey Waffle recipes are abundant. I had made waffles using these recipes, but something was missing. Additionally , as any waffle-lover can attest to, creating waffles requires separating eggs; not particularly conducive to the creation of a speedy breakfast. Then my daughter, Martese, shared with me the secret of quick, real Disney-like tasting waffles :
Carbon’s Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Flour!
Carbon’s Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Flour had been the missing ingredient to a perfect Mickey Mouse waffle made at home.
I bought mine on Amazon here.
Mickey Waffles are now mine with these few simple ingredients.
Just like Mickey makes, and no more separating eggs!
I carefully ladled the batter into the waffle maker.
For a great YOUtube tutorial on how to use this waffle maker, I found this.
Isn’t this cute?
Using my waffle tongs, I remove the culinary prize.
Yum-O! Just like Walt makes!
In fact, I always use real maple syrup, which makes these gems even more delicious!
Mickey Mouse Waffle Batter
1 and 1/4 cup water
2 cups Carbon’s Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Flour
4 Tablespoon (salted) butter, melted
PAM cooking spray
Real Maple Syrup (optional, but the best)
Plug in waffle iron.
Beat eggs and water together.
Add flour and mix together well.
Stir in melted butter, mixing well.
Spray waffle iron with PAM cooking spray.
Carefully ladle batter on waffle iron.
Watch waffle, as they cook quickly.
When done, carefully remove golden brown waffle from waffle iron.
Serve with real Maple Syrup

The first and last batch of Mickey Waffles that I made with the old-fashioned,
egg separating, recipe.
They were good, but were not exactly like the ones in the park.
(No, the screwdriver was not required for the recipe!)
