Comment: There are today multiple suppliers of waffle mix all of which are good, quicker and easier to make vs. starting from scratch but lacking a premix, here’s a Good Housekeeping Cookbook waffle recipe using GF flour in place of regular flour and you’ll need to add a small amount of Xanthan Gum that should be a staple in your GF pantry. If using a GF premix, follow directions on package but see below for adding apple slices, blueberries, etc.
3-5 Minutes in a counter top toaster
1 3/4 cups all-purpose GF flour
2 tsps Xanthan gum
1 tsp double -acting baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk (if not in stock then to make add two tlbs white vinegar to 2 cups of regular milk, stir and let sit for 10 minutes)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
- Preheat waffle iron in accordance as manufacturer directs. In a large bowl with whisk mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
- Add buttermilk, vegetable oil and eggs to flour mixture and mix until thoroughly blended
- Pour batter into center of iron until it spreads to about 1 inch from edges.
- Cover and bake as manufacturer of iron suggests but do not lift cover during baking time
- When ‘steam’ has lessened loosen top and remove baked waffle carefully with fork. Reheat iron before pouring next waffle.
Adding extras: You can thin out the mix somewhat if need be by adding a bit of buttermilk milk – but the batter should be the thickness of stirred sour cream. Add blueberries or apple slices and when mixed follow #3-5 above. When on your plate add toppings be that butter, margarine, sour cream, syrup, etc.
