Do You Make Homemade Waffles?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if others had some tried and true gluten free waffle recipes that you wanted to share. Or anything that isn't a typical waffle that can be made in a waffle iron. New ideas are always good!

We're a big waffle eating family and I have a heavy duty Belgian Waring Pro waffle iron that makes two at a time. I make other stuff in it too, like omelettes, falafel, hash browns, etc.

Pancakes > Waffles

 

But my husband disagrees with that.  You know, I don't own a waffle iron.  Have thought about getting one.  Maybe next Christmas I will drop a hint.  That KAF recipe works fabulously with pancakes, and I like to add mashed banana and some cinnamon to it for banana pancakes.  (You can do that with any pancake recipe really, just may need to adjust milk for batter thickness)  They have a recipe on the box of their gluten-free all purpose baking mix as well.

 

I think in general, waffles sometimes work better when you add more fat to the batter.  But overall most pancake and waffle recipes can be interchanged.

One reason why I tend to prefer waffles over pancakes is because I find them to be less work and less time consuming. With waffles I can just slam the iron shut and forget about it until it beeps. My waffle iron is lightning fast (about twice the speed of the cheap ones plus I can do two at a time). I can also sit down at the table and eat while more waffles are cooking, because the waffle iron will tell me when they're done.

 

If I make pancakes I have to babysit them constantly to keep them from burning and it takes a long time to get breakfast totally ready.

That is a good argument for waffles.  Now I really want to get a waffle iron!  I will burn the pancakes while tending to the eggs, etc all the time.

The key is to get a good waffle iron if you want to make waffles on a regular basis. The cheap ones require more babysitting and take twice as long to make the waffles. I absolutely love my Waring Pro waffle iron. It cost $100 and was worth every penny.

Ruth, this is the waffle recipe I use.

 

Gluten Free Belgian waffle recipe:

1 1/3 cups of Bisquick gluten-free pancake & baking mix
1 1/4 cups of milk
3 Tblsp. of canola oil (or oil of your choice)
2 eggs, seperated (sub chia seed for egg yolk if needed)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tblsp. sugar

Put the Bisquick pancake mix in 1 bowl. In a second bowl use a wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks & sugar until sugar is completely dissolved & eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, milk & oil to the egg yolk mixture & whisk or mix well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the Bisquick & whisk until blended. In a third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not over mix! Pour the batter into prepared waffle maker.
You can also mash a ripe banana & add it to the mixture before folding in the egg whites. It will make the waffles a little heavier & you will need to cook them slightly longer but they are delicious!

I came up with this recipe by combing the regular waffle recipe on the Bisquick box with a Classic Belgian Waffle recipe by Emeril Lagasse.

Speaking of waffles, all I can find now are the Belgian waffle irons. I like the waffles with the smaller holes better. No, I haven't looked online yet, but it makes me feel old. It seems that all of my favorite things are being replaced with stuff OTHER people like better. (grump, grump, grump.)

{{{{{{ Barty }}}}}}} And when I got my Belgian waffler I had a hard time finding one. Now they're all the rag. The pendulum swings Barty -- always. The question is, will we be around to see it swing back? :D

I agree that waffles with small holes are superior.  No pooling of toppings, everything uniform.  LOL

Yes, I WILL be around when that pendulum swings back. But I'll be standing in the wrong place and it'll knock me in the head. :lol:

The recipe totally doesn't look like it should work, but it does! The batter is so thin. I had to resist the temptation to thicken the batter. LOL!

 

My kiddos devoured them really quickly. They taste very good and do not have a beany flavor. I often make whole grain waffles with gluten-free oats, but it's nice to have a recipe that doesn't rely on oats.

I make waffles wit all sorts of flours from scratch - teff, amaranth, coconut, almond and I mix them with ordinary self-raising flour in order to change the texture and tastes- 3 eggs, a good dollop of lactose free or soya yoghourt ( I am lactose intolerant)), lactose free butter ... And off we go onto the waffle iron!! Since becoming gluten free I normally don't eat bread anymore -as I cannot get used to the texture and the taste- And I make waffles with gluten free oat bran and use them as a substitute. I make up a few and freeze them to use as I need them.

This is my time to shine!   haha, it's a little late, but hopefully still helpful.

 

My family has the same exact waffle maker - isn't it awesome!?

I have a fool-proff DELICIOUS waffle recipe/method that makes the best waffles ever.  (non gluten-free people have said they are really good and can't tell the difference)

Use the Betty Crocker Cookbook recipe for waffles (if you don't have it or can't find it, let me know, and I'll write it as a comment).  Use 1.5 times the listed amount for baking powder, though.

 

The flour I use is called "Namaste", and it has the perfect balance of flours and xanthan gum for the waffles.  You can find it at Costco for a decent price.

If you are dairy free, it also works really well with almond milk (these don't "rise" as much as the ones with regular milk, but they still taste really good, and are still fluffy).

 

One day, we added blueberries to the mix, and it was wonderful :)

 

At my house, we make HUGE batches of waffles (think 50+ waffles), then put them in large ziploc bags with parchment paper between them (to prevent them from sticking together), freeze them, then pop them in the toaster in the mornings, and they stay soft in the middle! 

 

MMMMMMM!

Great idea to make them in batches and freeze

I do that to a lesser degree too.  My kids eat waffles most days, but I only make them once or twice per week.

 

Mine are coconut flour and flax meal based. They got the kids' satmp of approval though.  ;)

    Celiac.com 07/16/2018 - Did weak public oversight leave Arizonans ripe for Theranos’ faulty blood tests scam? Scandal-plagued blood-testing company Theranos deceived Arizona officials and patients by selling unproven, unreliable products that produced faulty medical results, according to a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter, whose in-depth, comprehensive investigation of the company uncovered deceit, abuse, and potential fraud.
    Moreover, Arizona government officials facilitated the deception by providing weak regulatory oversight that essentially left patients as guinea pigs, said the book’s author, investigative reporter John Carreyrou. 
    In the newly released "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup," Carreyrou documents how Theranos and its upstart founder, Elizabeth Holmes, used overblown marketing claims and questionable sales tactics to push faulty products that resulted in consistently faulty blood tests results. Flawed results included tests for celiac disease and numerous other serious, and potentially life-threatening, conditions.
    According to Carreyrou, Theranos’ lies and deceit made Arizonans into guinea pigs in what amounted to a "big, unauthorized medical experiment.” Even though founder Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos duped numerous people, including seemingly savvy investors, Carreyrou points out that there were public facts available to elected officials back then, like a complete lack of clinical data on the company's testing and no approvals from the Food and Drug Administration for any of its tests.
    SEC recently charged the now disgraced Holmes with what it called a 'years-long fraud.’ The company’s value has plummeted, and it is now nearly worthless, and facing dozens, and possibly hundreds of lawsuits from angry investors. Meantime, Theranos will pay Arizona consumers $4.65 million under a consumer-fraud settlement Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich negotiated with the embattled blood-testing company.
    Both investors and Arizona officials, “could have picked up on those things or asked more questions or kicked the tires more," Carreyrou said. Unlike other states, such as New York, Arizona lacks robust laboratory oversight that would likely have prevented Theranos from operating in those places, he added.
    Stay tuned for more new on how the Theranos fraud story plays out.

    Celiac.com 07/13/2018 - I went to a friend’s home for dinner.  A few days before, she called and asked me what I could eat.  I asked her what she was planning to make, and she said she was grilling meats with side dishes.  I said, “Great.  Please just grill a piece of chicken for me with salt and pepper, and I’ll be happy to bring a side.” She said, “No need to bring a side.  I’ve got this.” When I arrived, she greeted me and said, “I spent all day cooking tonight’s dinner so you can eat it. Hey would you just check this salad dressing to see if it is OK for you?” I looked at the ingredients and it contained gluten and dairy, both of which I cannot eat.  Then I glanced around the kitchen and saw evidence of wheat cross-contamination, including buns being toasted on the grill, and gluten-containing barbeque sauce spilling on the grill where my “clean” chicken was cooking. She had other guests to tend to, and I couldn’t offer instruction or read the ingredients of everything she used in the meal. 
    At social gatherings, I’ve been challenged too by those who ask if I am really “allergic,” or just eating gluten free as a “fad.” I’ve been told many times by hosts and hostesses that, “a little won’t hurt you,” or “everything in moderation,” or “if it is made with loving hands, it is good for you to eat.”  Of course, all of this is bunk for those with food allergies or celiac disease.  A little bit may kill us, and whether made with loving hands or not, it will certainly make us sick. 
    Those of us with food allergies and/or celiac disease walk a tightrope with friends and relatives. The old rules of etiquette just don’t work anymore.  We don’t want to insult anybody, we don’t want to be isolated, and we also don’t want to risk our health by eating foods that may contain ingredients we cannot tolerate.  So what do we do? 
    Etiquette books advise us to eat what is put in front of us when we are guests in someone’s home. They caution us at all costs not to insult our hostess. Rather, we are instructed to compliment the hostess on her good cooking, flavor combinations, and food choices.  But when foods are prepared in a cross-contaminated environment with ingredients we are allergic to, we cannot follow the old social constructs that do not serve us.  We need to work together to rewrite the rules, so that we can be included in social gatherings without fear of cross-contamination, and without offending anyone.
    Let’s figure out how to surmount these social situations together.  
    Each edition of this column will present a scenario, and together, we’ll determine appropriate, polite, and most importantly, safe ways to navigate this tricky gluten-free/food allergies lifestyle in a graceful way.  If someone disagrees with our new behavior patterns, we can refer them to this column and say, “Here are the new rules for those of us with food allergies or celiac disease.”  When we are guests in someone’s home, we can give them links to this column so they understand the plight we are faced with, bite after bite. Perhaps this will help those of us living with us to understand, be more compassionate, and accepting of our adaptations to keep ourselves safe. 
    This column will present a scenario such as the one above, and ask that you comment on how you would navigate it. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share ideas.  Using the example above, here’s the scenario for this issue:
    What would you do?
    Your kind-hearted friend invites you to dinner and insists on cooking for you.  You arrive and the first thing she says is, “I’ve spent all day making this for you. Oh, I bought this salad dressing for you, but you might want to read the ingredients first.”  You do, and it contains malt vinegar.  You look around the kitchen and notice evidence of cross-contamination in the rest of the meal.  What do you do? 
    Please comment below and feel free to share the tricky scenarios that you’ve encountered too.  Let’s discuss how to surmount these social situations.  What would you do?

    Celiac.com 07/12/2018 - Previous research has shown that the oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS) reduces of gastro-intestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients. The reduction of symptoms was not connected with changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. Therefore, researchers suspected that the reduction of symptoms might be related to the modulation of innate immunity.
    To test that hypothesis, a team of researchers set out to assess the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B.infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet.
    The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano,RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno,MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Mauriño, MD, Elena F. Verdú, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD. They are affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; the Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine and the Department of Alimentation at Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo, Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    The team determined the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, along with the expression of a-defensin-5 expression via immunohistochemistry in duodenal biopsies.
    Their results showed that a gluten-free diet lowers duodenal macrophage counts in celiac disease patients more effectively than B. infantis, while B. infantis lowers Paneth cell counts and reduces expression of a-defensin-5.
    This study documents the differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet. The team calls for further study to better understand the synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplementation in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/11/2018 - For people with celiac disease, finding decent gluten-free bread is like searching gold. Many have given up on bread entirely and others begrudgingly relate themselves to the ignominious frozen aisle at their supermarket and content themselves with one of the many dry, shriveled, flavorless loaves that proudly tout the gluten-free label. 
    For these people, the idea of freshly baked bread is a distant, if comforting, memory. The idea of going to Paris and marching into a boulangerie and walking out with a warm, tasty, gluten-free baguette that was freshly baked on the premises that morning, is like a dream. Now, in some Parisian bakeries, that dream is becoming a reality. And the tear of joy from the thankful gluten-free masses are sure to follow.
    These days, a single sign on the awning speaks to hungry customers who peruse the tarts and chou buns, and the loaves that fill the cooling on racks behind a glass pane at Chambelland boulangerie and café in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. The sign lettered in French translates: “artisan baker; flour producer; naturally gluten free.” That’s right. Naturally gluten-free. At a bakery. In Paris. 
    Only the flat, focaccia-style loaves, and the absence of baguettes, tells customers that this bakery is something different. Chambelland opened its doors in 2014 and continues to do a brisk business in delicious, freshly baked gluten-free breads and other goods.
    The boulangerie is the work of Narhaniel Doboin and his business partner, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland. They use flour made of grains including rice, buckwheat and sorghum to make delicious gluten-free baked goods. Doboin says that customers queued in the rain on the first day, hardly believing their eyes, some began to cry. 
    For gluten-free Parisians, there was a time before Chambelland, and the time after. If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to search them out for what is sure to be a gluten-free delight.
    Or maybe book your ticket now.
