This is one of my most requested recipes on Instagram. Cornbread Mickey Waffles are not only easy to make, but I believe the crispy to soft ratio is by far the superior way of making cornbread. Once you try this, you won’t ever want to go back to muffins.
I’ve used this recipe for years, even before my Mickey waffle maker, any waffle maker will do. The best tip I have is: do NOT spray oil on the waffle maker, if it seems to be sticking, use your fork and work its way around the edges to make them come out. The mix has plenty of oil in the recipe already and added oil just gunks it up.
Cornbread Mickey Waffles
1 pkg Honey Cornbread Mix (I use Krusteaz, but any will do)
2/3 cup milk (I use skim but any fat content will work)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
Preheat waffle iron.
Mix all the ingredients until blended. Pour batter into each Mickey shape, about 2/3 cup total for the three Mickeys. Close lid and cook to golden brown on lightest setting.
When the waffle maker beeps, remove waffles and place on cooling rack. Repeat with remaining cornbread batter.
Serve with chili, soup, or just eat them plain.
