This is what one of the finished plates looked like (minus some hash browns). This is the link to the original recipe for the most amazing waffles I’ve ever had and made. They always turn out light and crisp but not burnt, they come out of my waffle iron easily, great flavor, PLUS any left overs I just put in a freezer bag and pop them in the toaster the next day for even more waffle enjoyment 🙂 What I do to make them gluten free is just use a gluten free flour mix.
Oh and I have forgotten to note that gluten free flours with garbanzo bean flour or fava bean flour can make the dough (or whatever you’re making) taste kind of funky (think Bobs Red Mill baking mix and their chocolate chip cookie mix) after you bake it, it usually will turn out fine but I feel like even though I can’t have normal gluten things, I should be able to taste my gluten free cookie dough and not instinctively make a yuck face.
Anyway, I really like the flour blend I use and it typically works great as a cup for cup substitute when I am adopting a recipe to make it gluten free. You can find the flour blend that I use here (over in the recipe section).
The Best waffles (and Pancakes) You Will Ever Have!
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 cup Gluten Free flour blend (use a cup for cup gluten free flour blend, it just makes everything easier)
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted (I use olive oil)
- cooking spray (I don’t use this, but you can)
- Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes (or longer) to “sour”.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
- Heat a large skillet (or waffel iron) over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls (or however much you would like, or is appropriate for your waffel iron if you are making waffels) of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me and my family! Let me know
