Light Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles are amazing. These are so good, no one will be able to tell they are gluten free. I have fooled my family many times!
Our grandkids love pancakes, waffles, coffee cake and all things carb. But if I tell them something is gluten free, they won’t even try it. Since I can’t eat gluten without getting sick, and I wanted to have waffles with them, I looked up several gluten-free waffle recipes and took a chance they would like them. The one on Splendid Table looked the best, and it turned out to be amazing. Everyone loved them.
What I Did
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. Ha! I fooled them.
Try them. These Light and Fluffy Gluten-free Waffles are awesome. Better than any waffles I have eaten.
What You Need
For this recipe, you will need measuring cups and spoons, a big bowl, an electric mixer, and a waffle maker.
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.
How to Tell if It’s Gluten Free
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 celiac or very sensitive to gluten, then you should make sure all your ingredients say “gluten free.” That will assure that there is no cross-contamination of gluten in your ingredients.
You’re gonna wanna eat these waffles, and when you do, please comment on the post!
