Any flavor cake mix
Flat-bottomed waffle ice cream cones
Prepare any flavor layer cake mix as directed on the package.
Pour a scant 1/4 cup batter into each of the waffle cones.
Fill a scant half full; if cones are filled more than this,
batter will run over top. Set in square or oblong pan and bake
as directed for cupcakes. Cool. Frost with any favorite
frosting and decorate with candies. Do not store in an
airtight container as the cones will soften.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
