I have a special treat today, literally! My good friend Melissa from The Baked Equation is here to share a wonderful little recipe. If you haven’t visited her website you really should. So many yummy recipes to choose from that are beautifully photographed you may want to lick the screen :). I give you Melissa!
We love waffles. We love waffles so much we served them at our wedding. Yes, that is right, we had a waffle bar. But I have not had waffles in a really long time. We try to limit the amount of gluten that we eat due to my son’s eczema. Many times I don’t eat my favorite foods anymore because I prefer the “real” thing. But I have been craving waffles. Can I have gluten-free waffles with the same great flavor? Oh yes, you can! Whether you like them soft or crispy this gluten free buttermilk waffle recipe will not disappoint.
You might be wondering who is this “we” that she talking about? My name is Melissa, and I blog over at The Baked Equation. Karen and I decided to swap gluten free blog posts. You will have to head over to my blog to read about her gluten free quinoa brownies and yummy veggies that are perfect for dinner.
Gluten Free Waffle Recipe
- 2 Cups Cup4Cup Gluten Free flour mixture
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- 1 ½ tsp. baking soda
- 2 tablespoon malt powder **optional
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 ¾ cup buttermilk, at room temp.
- 2 eggs, separated, at room temp.
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
- 1 tsp. vanilla
**NOTE: In my research, some GF eaters don’t mind and some do. Malt comes from barely so you can just omit it if you do not eat it. But I love the slight malted flavor that it adds.
- Preheat waffle iron.
- Combine dry ingredients together. Mix together buttermilk, egg yolks and vanilla with a large spoon and combine with the dry ingredients. You don’t want to over stir a gluten free mixture that has xanthan gum in it.
- Whisk in the egg whites till mixture comes together
- Spoon batter on to you waffle iron. I used an ice cream scoop. Gluten free mixtures can have a gummy texture. The scoops helps it come out easily My iron beeps when the waffle is ready. Approximately, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Serve immediately. Or you can freeze leftover waffles in a freezer bag.
Any time I write a gluten free blog post I receive many questions about Cup4Cup gluten free flour blend. In fact, I am pretty sure I sound like a spokesperson. While I am not a spokesperson for Cup4Cup, I love it. When I first started delving into the world of gluten free foods, I felt overwhelmed. There are so many ingredients that you need to go buy to make a gluten free flour blend from home. Then to only buy all the ingredients with lack luster results. Cup4Cup was my happy alternative. I could use my same recipes and just swap their flour. What a relief? I didn’t have time to start developing new recipes and I definitely didn’t like spending all the money to have mediocre gluten free treats.
My favorite syrup is Nature’s Hallow Sugar Free Syrup. Many people who are gluten free also watch their sugar intake. I love Nature’s Hallow products. Their sugar free syrup plus gluten free waffles make the best partnership.
Karen, thank you so much for letting me guest post on your blog today. I hope you enjoy the waffles!
Thanks Melissa, I can’t wait to try these!!!
And Thank you for looking!
