Boy, am I ready for the weekend! It’s been non stop go-go-go ever since classes started, mind you, I love being busy, but I do miss eating a good breakfast. I can already tell that this weekend is going to be filled with waffles! Experimenting with different types of waffles and pancakes is a lot of fun. Before these waffles, I’d never experimented with any type of gluten free breakfast food (other than my Vegan Pancakes) and I wasn’t sure how different making gluten free waffles would be from regular waffles. Here’s the thing people, it’s no different at all!
Before these Gluten Free Belgian Waffles my Mom hadn’t had a waffle in something like 18 years. I can’t even begin to imagine. She was gluten free looong before being “gluten free” even existed. Back then there weren’t any gluten free breads or frozen waffles, if you wanted to have a gluten free snack, you had to make it yourself. Which was equally as hard without all the “gluten free flour mixes” we have these days, (which make gluten free baking so much easier.)
Gluten Free Belgian Waffles
Recipe by Lou
2 cups of your favourite gluten free flour mix
1 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 eggs, separated
1 cup 2% milk
3 tbsp melted butter
3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat waffle iron. I like my waffles medium.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft, glossy peaks form.
In another bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, milk, butter, oil and vanilla extract.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Next, carefully fold in the egg whites.
Using a ladle, ladle the batter into the waffle iron and cook until desired doneness, about 4 minutes for golden waffles.
See, how easy is that. These Gluten Free Belgian Waffles taste just like regular waffles and they freeze really well and can be reheated quickly in the toaster.
