These are hands down the best gluten-free waffles I have ever made or eaten! I honestly had no idea how much flavor a little yeast would add – I only made them because my mom used to rave about Belgian yeast waffles, and I though that they’d be fun to try. Boy was she right!
These are Ah-mazing! I’ve never made a waffle, especially a gluten-free waffle with this much flavor and integrity. They’re soft, springy, fluffy, and slightly crispy on the outside, just like a waffle should be.
And yes, they’re risen only by yeast, no baking powder or baking soda at ALL.
They do take a little bit of time to make, because you want to let the batter rise for about an hour before you cook them. That means it’s hands-off time. What I did was mix up the batter first thing, they made beds, took a shower, cuddles the kids who’d just woken up… you know, morning stuff. Totally worth the wait!
And I honestly don’t think I’ll be making Gluten-free baking powder waffles anymore. That’s how impressed I am. You’ve got to try this recipe!
