But whatever will we fill it with when our doc suggests that we avoid gluten for a few months? I'm game for diet changes, if only for the exercise of it, but I'm not about to cut out brunch.
Also, I'm impatient. I didn't want to wait for pre-made gluten free waffle mixes (or xanthan gum, cornstarch or potato starch for that matter) to make their way into my life before waffles could happen. I admit, I'd been stocking up on odd flours in case a gluten-free pastry would be called for--a girl's gotta be prepared. So with my sweetie in front of the internet, reading aloud gluten free waffle ingredient lists, and I in front of my cupboard, and finding no good match, we settled on a plan, a good, old-fashioned, cross-your-fingers plan.
And it worked! The waffles turned out moist, substantive but not dense with an enjoyable crunch to the crispy parts. Also, they liked holding together more than they liked holding to the waffle iron, which is important. These puppies are gluten free and accidentally lactose free too!
