Every time I make these waffles, everyone goes crazy! They’re so cute and they look EXACTLY like Mickey Mouse. Step up your waffle game with these adorable Mickey Mouse Waffles!
Making waffles for my family is one of my favorite things to do weekends mornings….actually any day of the week around here 🙂 You are going to love this recipe in the shape of Mickey Mouse! This Mickey Waffle Maker makes waffles that really looks like the mini Mickey Waffles you get at the Parks! So so adorable. You can also make my waffle recipe in any of your waffle irons you have at home.
What You’ll Need
- milk– 2% or higher works best.
- butter– For most of my recipes I use salted butter, but unsalted works just fine too.
- buttermilk– No substitutions. Do not use the powder you can mix with water. Will not produce the right outcome.
- large egg yolk– For consistency, I use large eggs in my cooking and baking.
- pure vanilla extract– For best tasting results use pure vanilla.
- all-purpose flour– Flour is the main dry ingredient in the waffle recipe.
- granulated sugar– This fine white sugar adds sweetness to the waffles.
- baking powder– Baking powder helps the waffles rise while cooking.
- kosher salt– Kosher salt is a coarse salt commonly used in cooking and baking.
Where Do I Buy A Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker?
Found this new Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker for his 90th Anniversary online at Shop Disney! It makes mini Mickey Waffles just like the ones you get at the Parks! You can also search Amazon for other varieties. I’ve had decent luck finding Disney Kitchen goodies at CVS Pharmacy as well, doesn’t hurt to check. This specific waffle maker I used today is from Shop Disney.
Pour in the milk to melted butter. Add the buttermilk, egg yolks and vanilla. Stir to combine.
Add the dry ingredients, stir to combine then gently fold in beaten egg whites. See recipe instructions below for details.
I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed using this Mickey waffle maker. They really do look like the mini Mickey Waffles you get around the Parks such as Goofy’s Kitchen, Storyteller’s Cafe and Plaza Inn for breakfast. So much fun!
Use a spoon to fill each bottom Mickey shape in the waffle maker up to the top because when you close the lid, the top portion has the same amount of space so it doesn’t overflow. This will give you a nice thick waffle. The waffle iron will let you know when the waffles are done by beeping. You can check doneness by lifting lid after a minute or so. I played around with the “light to dark” on the dial and preferred the dial set right in between both.
Here’s how they came out. If you want them even crispier, move the dial even closer to the “darker” side. They are really really cute.
In my opinion, the Mickey Waffle was worth the price on Shop Disney. I like the fact that it’s got the double flip to it. I think the shape and thickness is spot on. Use my recipe for an ever sweeter treat!
How To Serve Mickey Waffles
Serve waffles warm with either my Homemade Buttermilk Syrup, recipe in recipe card below, or traditional maple syrup. These waffles are great for weekend entertaining or anytime you want to make waffles.
How To Store Leftovers
Store any leftover waffles, room temperature in an airtight container or Ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat as needed. Toaster keeps them crisp.

Yes, make sure waffles are at room temperature then place in an airtight container or Ziplock bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
