Eunice’s GF Waffles

On a recent trip to Calgary, we were treated to my sister’s waffles.  I didn’t even own a waffle iron anymore, but after this experience, I ordered one with my airmiles, and then couldn’t wait until it came, and so I borrowed one from my daughter to make my own batch for the freezer.

Eunice’s GF Waffles

Liquid Ingredients:
4 tbsp vinegar
4 cups milk
Mix these two ingredients together and let sit for 10 minutes.
6 eggs
1/4 cup olive oil
Finely shaved orange peel from the outside of one orange

Dry Ingredients:
2 cups All Purpose Gluten-free Baking Flour (commercial mix including: garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, white sorghum flour, fava bean flour; or your own version of all purpose gf flour)
1 cup Gluten-free Oat Flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup cornmeal (or any other gluten free flour that strikes your fancy)
2 tbsp flax meal
1 tbsp guar gum
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Put the liquids into a mixing bowl and blend at medium speed for 2 minutes.
Slowly spoon the dry ingredients into the liquid ingredients while continuing to blend at medium speed.
Put waffle iron on medium high.
This waffle mix is runnier than most regular waffle mixes. These waffles freeze and toast well. Let the leftover waffles cool completely before putting into baggies for fridge or freezer.
