Basic Light & Fluffy Gluten Free Waffles

A gluten free brunch basic: perfect light and fluffy gluten free waffles with a thin crispy outer layer!

Tips for better gluten free waffles:

1. Use an electric hand mixer for an even better, lighter and airier batter.

2. Use applesauce as a sweetener. It’s yummy, healthier, but most importantly it seems to add a certain touch to the batter. Out of all my attempts, the applesauce ones always yield the best result.

3. Try not to open the waffle maker to check up on them too often as this will let out steam and affect the texture.

4. Experiment with cooking times and temperature as this will vary a lot from one waffle maker to the other.

5. Pop leftovers under the grill briefly to get that crispy outer layer again.

Gluten free waffles recipe:

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 5 to 10 minutes (per batch)

Yields: 6 to 8 waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten free self-raising flour (I used Doves Farm)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened in the microwave)
  • 3 Tbsp applesauce (or sugar)
  • Cooking oil or spray of your choice (to brush on the waffle iron plates – I use Fry Light)

With chopped up ham and grated extra mature cheddar cheese. 😛

Directions

  1. Whisk all ingredients until you reach a smooth consistency. The batter should be relatively thick, but slightly runny. The amount of milk needed may vary depending on what flour blend you’re using. If it seems too thick and barely runs, add a few extra tablespoons of milk.Gluten free waffles making process - batter consistency | gluten free recipes | gluten free breakfast | Kimi Eats Gluten Free
  2. Brush a bit of oil (or cooking spray) on the waffle plates and pre-heat the waffle maker.Gluten free waffles making process | gluten free recipes | gluten free breakfast | Kimi Eats Gluten Free
  3. Spoon the batter on (about 2 heaped tablespoons per waffle) and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your waffle maker and the size of your waffles. Mine yields large Belgian style waffles and 9 minutes seems about right.Gluten free waffles | gluten free recipes | gluten free breakfast | Kimi Eats Gluten Free

  1. Kimi, this is absolutely the best gluten free waffle recipe out there – and I’ve tried a few! Thanks so much for sharing it. My waffle maker is no longer collecting dust in the cupboard; my son requests these waffles every weekend for breakfast and any leftover get toasted and eaten later. Even though he’s the only gluten free member of the family, we all love these waffles xxx

    • Aww thank you so much for the feedback. I’m glad you all love them! It’s always nice to hear that even gluten eaters approve; that’s when you know it really passes the test. hehe
