Buttermilk Belgian Waffles

Belgian waffleIf you don’t already have a waffle maker, you might think about getting one.  One of our readers, Sandra, has sent us this recipe for delectable Belgian waffles.  It’s quick, easy and of course, gluten-free.

“I started making these waffles for my teenage son.  Soon his friends were starting to invite themselves over for sleepover parties just so they could have my waffles in the morning.”

“They don’t care that they’re gluten-free”, Sandra explains.  “Just top them with butter and syrup and they’re fantastic.  To make them special, top with yogurt and fresh fruit, or hit it right out of the park with whipping cream.”

Here’s Sandra’s recipe.

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch or corn starch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs or or 1/3 cup egg substitute
  • 1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat waffle iron to desired setting.  In a large bowl, mix together the flours, starch, baking powder, salt and sugar.  In a separate medium bowl, beat the eggs. Add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla and mix well.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until well-combined and moistened.  Cook according to waffle maker’s directions.

This recipe makes about 3 large Belgian waffles.  Serve immediately with your favourite toppings.
