RECIPE IDEA: Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles. Our oldest daughter and family are here visiting us this week. The kids love pancakes, waffles, coffee cake and all things carb. Since I can’t eat gluten without getting sick, but I wanted to have waffles, I looked up several gluten-free waffle recipes. The one on Splendid Table looked the best, and it turned out to be amazing.
The Splendid Table’s recipe specified gluten-free for each ingredient. Since I am not THAT sensitive to gluten, I do not worry about whether my vanilla says “gluten-free,” etc. I use pure vanilla extract, Kosher salt, and other basic ingredients. If you are very sensitive to gluten, then you should make sure all your ingredients say “gluten free.”
I changed two things in the recipe: (1) I used two kinds of gluten-free flour and (2) I added Xanthan Gum to make it a little more “glutenous.” And it worked perfectly. Everyone thought they were just regular (wheat flour) waffles. Usually, the kids and grandkids turn up their noses about anything a little out of the ordinary, including gluten-free. Ha! I fooled them. Try them. These Light and Fluffy Gluten-free Waffles are awesome.
I make mine on a double waffle maker, similar to the commercial waffle makers in hotels. I absolutely love it. It’s so easy to use. Heat it up. When it beeps, it’s ready for the batter. Pour the batter in the center, measured in the cup that comes with it. Close the lid and turn it over as instructed. When it beeps, it’s done. Perfectly. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend you get the one I have, the Waring Pro Double Belgian Waffle Maker.
