Waffles

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just diagnosed with celiac disease and I am a big time waffle lover. Made waffles with Bisquick and just tried the Namaste Waffle & Pancake mix and was not happy. Is there anything better out there that taste close to regular waffles? Please help, I am about to fold and just have a regular waffle. :( :( :( :( :(

My husband has been making waffles with Pamela's mix and eating them in front of me because I discovered I can't have the potato starch in her mix...He made them again yesterday so I got teed off and looked at the ingredients on the Pamela's packet and followed her recipe except for the flour. I have found a cake flour mix that will work for me (stir together equal parts brown rice flour, sorghum, tapioca starch) so this is what I did (and I am not the kind to iimprovise baking recipes, not even those with gluten in them):

1 cup of flour mix

1-1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch or so of salt

(these amounts except for the flour were all just guesses)

3/4 cup of water, plus added some buttermilk because it was too thick, but I think it worked better being thicker

2 eggs separated

2 Tbs oil

Mix egg yolks, water and oil together and stir into flour mix until there are no lumps

Beat egg whites and fold them in, and bake immediately in waffle iron.

I even made some blueberry sauce to go with them--haha, I showed him!!!

My mix was thicker than his and his waffles burned and looked funny whereas mine came out a perfect golden brown.

Hope you are soon enjoying waffles. Before I found out about the potato starch we used some Trader Joe's waffle mix which was quite good.

A lot of people rave about Van's gluten-free waffles. I haven't tried them, as I don't eat prepackaged stuff.

mushroom: Try 1 tsp xanthan per cup of flour. That will reduce the thickness, and should help make a fluffier waffle.

I just recently used Whole Foods 365 Gluten Free Pancake and Waffle mix to make Pancakes. They were very good. I would imagine if the pancakes are good, the waffles would also be good...

Several years ago I purchased Van's Waffles, and they were fantastic. I now have a serious problem with soy,and dairy, so I can no longer eat Van's. I really miss them. Until you can come up with a good "from scratch" recipe, Van's will get you over the hump.

I use this recipe:

I reduce the milk or sub to 1 1/2 cups. Good with or without: nuts, berries, mini chocolate chips.

You can use honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, etc. for the sweetener. I keep ripe bananas in the freezer...just thaw and mash. Keep a bag of cooked ones in the freezer...so easy!

They are amazing!
