The Best Gluten Free Waffles

One note for anyone recently diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance: you'll want to buy a new waffle maker. It's not as crucial as getting a new toaster (ever tried to clean one of those?) but why risk the contamination?


2/3 cup rice flour
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
1/8 cup white bean flour
1/8 cup tapioca flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tb butter
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1 tb sugar

1. Mix the flours, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
2. In a saucepan, warm the milk, and add the butter. Warm the milk so it just melts the butter.
3. Separate the eggs. Remove the milk from the burner, whisk in the yolks and set aside.
4. Beat the whites of the eggs. Once they thicken, add the sugar and cream of tartar. Continue beating until peaks form, but not stiff.
5. Pour the milk into the flour, and quickly stir with the whisk. Let sit for a minute or two while you fiddle around getting the waffle iron ready, warming the syrup, and whipping the cream.
6. Using a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the batter, gently swirling around until pretty well mixed.
7. Follow the instructions for your waffle maker. These will cook just like wheat waffles, although they don't darken quite as easily. If you like a darker appearance, you can add a tablespoon of milk powder to the flour mix. However, try it first according to this recipe, as they really are fantastic!
