HOW IT STARTED

My Story

Hello my name is Sass. I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease over 15 years ago. Back then, options were limited and I really struggled with my change to eating gluten free and finding alternatives for baked goods. 

 

I have always loved being in the kitchen so it was only natural that over the years I have sought out ingredients and ways to create delicious gluten free food. I am often told that you cannot tell my gluten free baking apart from "the normal..." so I dare you to give it go. 

Mid 2020, I was asked by my favourite gluten free flour company if I would become one of their at home test bakers. This involves confirming recipes where their flours are used. Of course I said yes! So you will see that I often reference FG Roberts in my baking. I use FG Roberts flours exclusively now because the results are consistent.

Gluten Free Waffles

How do you waffle? Whether you are a sweet or savoury waffle lover, this recipe will cater for all tastes. Simply omit the vanilla essence and sugar for a savoury treat. These waffles are a very easy recipe. Made with FG Roberts plain gluten free flour, all you need are basic pantry staples to make these little beauties.


Waffles are perfect to freeze and so easy to reheat in the toaster or an air fryer. We’re not usually ones for a sweet breakfast so I’m expecting to be a little hyperactive for a while today after this batch. But it will be totally worth it!

Gluten Free Waffles

This makes about 10-12 waffles

Ingredients

325gm plain gluten free flour (I use FG Roberts)

1 tablespoon baking powder

20gm caster sugar (optional)

375gm milk

1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)

50gm vegetable oil

2 eggs


Directions

Thermomix method:

  1. Add the milk, vanilla essence, oil and egg to the Thermomix bowl.

  2. Mix 5 seconds, speed 4 to combine.

  3. Add the flour, baking powder, and sugar.

  4. Mix 5 seconds, speed 4 then scrape the bowl.

  5. Repeat 5 seconds, speed 4.

  6. Cook the waffles according to the directions on your waffle maker.

Conventional method:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and sugar.

  2. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

  3. In a small bowl add the milk, vanilla essence, oil and egg.

  4. Whisk to combine the dry ingredients together.

  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the center of the dry ingredients.

  6. Stir just until combined.

  7. Cook the waffles according to the directions on your waffle maker.


Notes:

Waffles can be frozen, just reheat in a toaster or an air fryer until crisp and hot.

To freeze, let them completely cool and then pop them onto a lined baking sheet. Freeze for 10 minutes, then remove from the baking sheet and place them inside a freezer-safe bag or air-tight container to freeze. The flash freezing will stop them from sticking together.
