Waffles / Goffres (gluten and dairy free)

My home town, Ustka, is a touristic resort and, as all other touristic resorts, it is full of delicious FOOD. It’s not unexpected that many famous snacks contain the bad guy (gluten). One of my favorites is a freshly made, still warm waffle with whipped cream and fruits or apple pure, jelly, sprinkles, powdered sugar, chocolate sauce or other topping.

Waffle is a kind of dough baked between two hot plates and it tastes divine. The last time I was visiting my home town I could only ‘enjoy’ the smell of it. When I saw a waffle making machine while shopping a couple of months after, I put it in my shopping basket immediately (here, you can see where I bought it). You should smell the air while the waffles are being baked. It is just one more thing I refuse to miss out on. I am not going to allow the celiac disease to take away waffles from me!

Ingredients

  • Eggs – two
  • Honey (or sugar) – 4 spoons (optional; I enjoy them when less sweet as well)
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 spoon (optional)
  • Almond milk – ½ cup
  • Gluten free flour – 1 cup of Schar mix C OR 2 cups of almond flour (they have different water holding capacity thus different amounts are needed)
  • Salt –  a big pinch
  • Baking soda – ½ spoon
  • Baking powder – ½ spoon

Necessary appliances

  • Waffle making machine
  • A bowl
  • A spatula
  • A kitchen mixer
  • A spoon to transfer the dough to the waffle making machine

Tips

  • If you want your waffles crunchy – use the Schar’s mix C
  • If you want your waffles soft – use the almond flour (it contains more fat thus forms softer texture)
  • It is possible to use other flours; these two are the only ones I tested so far. Flours have various ability to hold water, depending on the content of the flour, different amounts will be needed
  • I allow my waffles a slightly longer time in the machine for more crunchy texture
  • Great idea for a quick dessert – without the need of baking a cake; plus if you use fat free flours – it is milder on your digestive system

Preparation steps

  1. Beat the eggs with salt, honey/sugar and vanilla extract using a kitchen mixer
  2. Afterwards add the almond milk and mix all together
  3. In another bowl mix flour with the baking powder and baking soda
  4. Add the flour mixture to the eggs and mix all together
  5. You can add extra water/flour to obtain ideal consistency (it should be more dense than the dough for the European pancakes)
