Here's a great waffle recipe.  Waffles are so fun because you can get so creative with the toppings!  Anything goes -- you can even make them main dish with meat/gravy type toppings.  Plus you can make them into fun "cookies" with the addition of more sugar and some chocolate powder.  Let your imagination run wild!


1 Cup brown or white rice flour
1/2 Cup tapioca flour
1/2 Cup potato starch flour
1/2 tsp salt
5 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional -- see note below)
Whisk together in a bowl.

2 eggs
1/4 Cup oil
3/4 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup water
2-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Separate eggs.  Beat yolks, oil, milk, water, and vanilla together.  Stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients until blended.  Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.  Fold gently into batter.  Bake on hot waffle iron.  Makes 6-8 waffles. 

Note:  If you like your waffles light and crisp, leave the xanthan gum out.  If you like them with more of a pancake texture, add the xanthan gum.

Do you know how to tell if your waffles are done without peeking?  Watch the steam -- there will be steam coming off of the edge of the waffle iron while they're cooking.  As soon as it stops, they're done.

In my Light As a Feather Pancake post, I suggested pureed peaches as a topping.  They work great on waffles too!  Here's how you do it:

Get out your blender and a quart of peaches.  Pour the peaches into the blender, put on the lid, hold it down, and puree.  If you want it even thicker, you can drain off the juice before putting the peaches into the blender.  Pour over waffles and serve.  Couldn't be simpler!  This can be done with any canned or fresh fruit.  Pick your favorite.  Much healthier for you than syrup, but hey, if you love syrup, knock yourself out!  Melted butter and syrup are a classic.  My personal favorite is fresh strawberries (or any kind of fresh berry or fresh peaches) and whipped cream.  Yum!

I made these waffles up at our cabin in the mountains and it was a very, very sunny morning and we have lots of windows -- hence the shadows and glare in all of the pictures.  Sorry about the poor quality, but the sun was wonderful and welcome.  Spring is at long last arriving up there!  These waffles really are great -- even your gluten eating friends will love them.


  1. This is a great recipe. I drain the juice of my peaches, bring it to a boil and thicken it with cornstarch then add the sliced peaches back in to warm them through.

  2. That sounds fantastic! A little more trouble, but worth it. Glad you like the recipe -- it's one of our favorites for a weekend morning. Weekends are the best!
