I've been wanting to try a recipe for gluten free rice flour waffles for a long time.  This morning, I finally did it!  The waffle was amazing.  Light and crispy.  Airy with an almost custard like interior, these gluten free waffles are giving my traditional waffle recipe a run for the money.

I have no medical reason to eat gluten free, but I did want to experiment a little with different flours to see how the tastes and textures would turn out.  These gluten free rice flour waffles will be a winner for families where only one person is G-free.

The waffles are so good, you don't even have to worry about making multiple items for breakfast so everybody is happy.  Another good thing about these waffles in that you don't need any xanthan gum, which is an ingredient called for in lots of g-free bread recipes.

This recipe should make enough for 6 waffles if you have a standard waffle iron like this one.  I have a  deep belgian waffle iron so I only got 3 Waffles.

How to Make Baking Mix From Scratch | Video Recipe

Baking Mix When I was a little girl one of the things I would look forward to was Saturday mornings.  Not because I knew I could watch cartoons all day, but because I knew that Saturday meant one of two things: pancakes or waffles.  During the week it was always cereal.  Rice crispies, corn flakes, or raisin bran. Gag me with spoon.  They got soggy too fast.

But Saturday, no one had to work and we could spend time on breakfast.  No rushing, no missing the bus, no fighting for the bathroom, just homemade breakfast.

Pancakes or waffles with a healthy side of bacon is what my aunt made for us.  She started by grabbing a big yellow box of baking mix and had waffles hot off the iron one after another, like a country club Sunday brunch pro.

Yes, you can go out and buy a big yellow box of baking mix, but you can also make it yourself.  It's only four ingredients and a great thing to have in your pantry.  When you make this diy baking mix yourself, you know exactly what is going into it.  You can use shortening or lard.  I have seen some recipes that use butter.  Do what you like.  I use palm shortening from tropical traditions, but if you want to use baking sticks that will work just fine too.

How to Make Baking Mix From Scratch
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Author: Kalisha Blair
  • 9 cups all purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 3/4 cups palm shortening
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender or a fork. The mixture should resemble coarse corn meal once all the fat is incorporated.
  2. Store the baking mix in a tightly covered container in a cool dry place. Be sure to lighten the mix with the fork before measuring. It has a tendency to settle and compact.
You can use this baking mix to make scones, pancakes, waffles and muffins. The possibilities are endless. Have fun using this pantry staple.[br][br]***Tools Needed for Baking Mix recipe[br][br]Mixing Bowl[br][br]Measuring cups[br][br]Measuring spoons
