Gfcf Waffle Recipe (hubby Thought It Was The "real" Thing!)

Recommended Posts

Here's what I did (sorry it's not too scientific):

1. separate 4 eggs (yes, 4. I know it's a lot!)

2. set yolks aside

3. whip whites to stiff peaks, set aside

4. melt 4 TBSP "buttery stick" or similar

5. slowly whip melted "butter" into yolks

6. mix in 1 cup soy milk (or whatever)

7. add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum

8. add 1/4 tsp salt

9. add 2 TBSP sugar

10. add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

11. add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

12. in a dry 1/2 cup measure, fill about a third of it with potato starch

13. full the remaining space in the 1/2 cup measure with gluten-free flour mix

14. mix well

15. carefully fold egg whites into the batter

Use your waffle iron's instructions. I get four round waffles. They're really fluffy (read: eggy) but I like them that way. I prefer waffles to scrambled eggs.

We used Aunt Jemima syrup.

Sounds wonderful. I used to make them with egg whites that you fluffed up and added the other stuff to. They were so light they almost floted. I will enjoy being able to eat a good waffle again.

Thanks,

27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

Other than the fluffiness, is there any reason to separate the eggs?

I've used the Pamela's brand pancake mix using the batter as described for pancakes and as described for waffles (eggs whites whipped separately), cooking both times in a waffle iron. While I liked the waffle directions better, I wasn't convinced that they were enough better to justify the extra effort.

The whipped egg whites provide more leavening action. *I* can tell the difference but I also might be extra picky.

Back in my wheat-OK days I skipped the egg white step when I was in a hurry. And it always made the waffle feel "flat." Kind of like the difference between a fresh can of soda and one you put in the fridge to save for later.
