Gluten-Free Waffles

Gluten-Free WafflesI have wanted a waffle iron for years, but just haven’t ever purchased one. At one of the Christmas parties we attended this year, we participated in a white-elephant gift exchange. My husband scored a waffle iron for his gift and I was super excited about it. I have made waffles a few times since and am loving it!

This gluten-free waffle recipe I am sharing with you today is delicious and a winner for everyone in our family to eat {plus, I bet others wouldn’t even know that it was gluten-free unless you told them}. I will be quick to post a recipe for a Gluten-Free Waffle and Pancake Mix shortly as well.

I use a Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend that I mix up myself, a recipe I gleaned from Jeanne over at www.artofglutenfreebaking.com. When I first started making it, I mixed up 1 batch to make sure I liked it and that it worked for me, but have since multiplied it by 4 to save me time and energy in the long run. The recipe for 4 batches is enough to just about fill up one of my flour containers. I also taped the recipe to the side of the container for easy reference when it is time to whip up another batch. Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

1 Batch:
1 1/4 c brown rice flour {I grind brown rice on the “Pastry” setting in my WonderMill}
1 1/4 c white rice flour {I grind white rice on the “Pastry” setting in my WonderMill}
1 c tapioca flour
1 c sweet rice flour {also known as glutinous rice flour or under the brand name Mochiko – I buy at a local Asian Market}
2 scant t xanthan gum

4 Batches:
5 c brown rice flour {I grind brown rice on the “Pastry” setting in my WonderMill}
5 c white rice flour {I grind white rice on the “Pastry” setting in my WonderMill}
4 c tapioca flour
4 c sweet rice flour {also known as glutinous rice flour or under the brand name Mochiko – I buy at a local Asian Market}
8 scant t xanthan gum

I am sure that any Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour will work as well. If you try out another one, let me know how you like it. Also, I like to make a big batch of these and then freeze them on a cookie sheet. Once frozen, pop them in a freezer bag and they are ready to individually pull out of the freezer and re-heat in the microwave or toaster! A delicious and easy breakfast that is ready to go! With that said, without anymore ramblings from me…read on, make and enjoy these gluten-free waffles! -Shelley.

Gluten-Free Waffles
*Makes approximately 12-14 waffles using 1/4 cup measurement for each waffle

1 1/2 c Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
3/4 t salt
2 T sugar
2 t baking powder
2 eggs, whisked
1 1/2 c – 1 3/4 c milk

In a separate bowl whisk together eggs and then add milk, vanilla and melted butter {or oil}.

Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients and whisk well to combine.

Pre-heat a waffle iron and pour batter by about 1/4 cupful onto the hot, greased waffle iron. Follow the directions for your specific waffle maker, but cook until batter is cooked through, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Top with whatever you fancy. We had some blueberry syrup and vanilla Greek yogurt that was amazing.
