One thing I asked Dean to buy me for Christmas this year was a waffle maker. The other was a food processor. And last year's request was a KitchenAid mixer.
Apparently I have thing for small kitchen appliances.
Anyway it turns out Dean is a pretty good listener because I got all three! And for the last month and a half we've been perfecting a gluten free dairy free waffle recipe that our family loves.
We really wanted to come up with a recipe that didn't require the use of a store-bought mix. And though for a family our size we use quite a bit of rice flour in our waffles, we do buy it in bulk so it definitely works out cheaper than a mix. If you're family is smaller than our family of five (one of whom is a teenage boy!), just cut the recipe in half.
Delicious gluten free dairy free waffles!
