I am delighted to share my recipe for Amazing Gluten Free Waffles with you. In fact, I am going to whip up a batch for my family this weekend. I use an Oster DuraCeramic Waffle Maker. My waffle maker has a non-stick ceramic coating so I don't need spray or oil to coat waffle maker. I would advise that before you proceed with cooking to please refer to your waffle makers instructions on how to operate. Many waffle irons require you to use a non stick spray on surface before cooking each serving/waffle so check with the directions on your type of waffle iron. How many servings the recipe makes also depends on your type of waffle iron. My machine creates the big round belgian-style look. But I truly enjoy the regular size square ones too! Homemade waffles are great to enjoy on the weekend when for most of us there is plenty of time to make them. My two little boys get so anxious and excited to see those waffles come out when they are done and the smell that fills the kitchen when making this recipe is amazing! I like to serve them hot and fresh with a good quality syrup or if I feel like making a special treat, I will top them with a dab of cool whip and fresh berries on top and then drizzle the syrup over all of that..yum! (Do not top with cream or berries until ready to serve otherwise they may get a little soggy).
Gluten Free Waffle Ingredients:
2 cups of gluten-free "Bisquick Mix"
1/2 cup gluten free Cornstarch (yes, cornstarch is naturally gluten free, however, there is the risk of cross contamination so if your very sensitive to gluten, I suggest you find a box that reads "gluten free")
1 Tsp or 1 plus 1/2 tsp Salt (*Optional-feel free to use less as Bisquick mix already has salt in it)
2 Tbl Baking Powder (If not using Bisquick)
2 Tbl sugar
3 Eggs (beaten)
1 1/4 cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon of vanilla
3 Tbl Coconut oil
Non stick spray (optional, check your waffle maker instructions)
First, Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then, in a separate bowl mix the liquid ingredients (Milk, Eggs, Vanilla, Oil). If coconut oil is in a solid rather than liquid state, slightly melt the oil but don't make it hot, just warm enough to melt, then mix it with rest of liquid ingredients. It most likely will turn to solid if mixed with cold milk so to prevent that if you wish , slightly warm your milk, again not hot just warm so the eggs don't cook from the heat before being mixed with the dry ingredients. Last step, is to combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Stir or mix well.
Important: The mix for this recipe will be much thicker than the usual recipe for waffles using regular flour. Anyone who cooks gluten free knows there is a difference in texture with regular flour vs. gluten free. To overcome this, I created this recipe through many, many trial and errors until I found the perfect combination. It should resemble a really thick muffin-like batter (If you've got that in your bowl, you didn't make a mistake!). One more thing, the finished batter will not pour effectively so you will have to scoop and spread on waffle maker with flat rubber spatula or back of spoon, but the end result is delicious! The batter should be smooth, sticky, muffin batter like consistency. If not smooth enough to mix, add a little water 1/4 cup at a time. Proceed to cook waffles according to your own waffle maker instructions. You may need to use a non stick spray, depending on the type of waffle iron you use.
