Gluten free baking is always a challenge. Gluten free flours have improved greatly over the years making one to one substitutions far more attractive to the average baker. For this recipe I recommend the following flour mixes for the best flavor and texture.

  • King Arthur all-purpose gluten free flour (multi-purpose flour)
  • Namaste gluten free perfect flour blend

How to achieve fluffy gluten free waffles

Before you begin this recipe make sure you read through all the steps and directions. A key step to achieve fluffiness and great texture in the waffles is to separate the eggs and whip the egg whites into a stiff peak. This is a step many bakers will want to skip. But I ensure you, it is what will take your average gluten free waffle to a new level. You may not even notice a difference between gluten free and regular waffles in terms of flavor and texture. You will need a whisk (or a hand-held electric mixer) and a large mixing bowl to whip up the egg whites separately.

We love waffles in our house. They make a great weekend brunch item. If you’d like to freeze the waffles you can. Allow them to cool completely, then store in an air-tight zip lock bag and freeze. My favorite way to serve these fluffy gluten free waffles is simply with maple syrup and butter, but fresh homemade blue berry sauce is also delicious.

What you’ll need

  • mixing bowls (2 large and 3 small)
  • rubber spatula
  • whisk or electric hand-held mixer
  • waffle iron
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil or melted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs, separate the yolks from the whites (set aside both for the recipe)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional seasonal spices (1 tsp cinnamon or 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the waffle iron.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and optional spices). Lightly whisk the ingredients together.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix together the milk, oil (or melted butter), vanilla extract and egg yolks.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites. Whisk (or use a hand-held mixer) until stiff peaks form. (It almost resembles whipped cream topping at this point).
  • Add the wet ingredients from the small mixing bowl (milk, oil, vanilla, egg yolks) to the dry ingredients. Blend together with a rubber spatula.
  • Finally, slowly fold in the egg whites into the batter. Slowly incorporate the egg whites so the batter remains light and fluffy.
  • Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Follow the waffle iron cooking instructions and cook about 3 minutes per side. (Usually about 3/4 cup of batter per waffle). Each waffle iron varies a little.
  • Serve hot.
