Breakfast “treats” can be a challenge for people who are trying to follow a gluten-free diet. We all know that sometimes the quality of bread-like gluten-free products falls short of their regular counterparts. But that is not always the case. With a little help from a box of King Arthur Flour’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix, you can whip up a batch of Cinnamon Maple Waffles. Your gluten-eating friends just might not believe that they are gluten-free.
I picked up a box of the gluten-free all-purpose mix when I was at Earth Fare this past week. I was trying to come up with a new recipe and was searching the shelves when I spotted the box. I was immediately drawn to the recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake. Then I saw recipes on the box for both pancakes and waffles. At that point I knew that I had to buy the box and make some breakfast goodies. It was past time for me to have a break the routine of just “eggs” for breakfast.
I always put cinnamon in my pancake, waffle and French toast recipes. It’s just one of those things. It’s like it is mandatory in my kitchen – you know? So, I made a few modifications to King Arthur Flour’s recipe. I added cinnamon to the recipe, reduced the milk a little, added maple syrup, and increased the amount of vanilla.
Easy Cinnamon Maple Waffles
- 1 cup King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 Tablespoons butter melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Place dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.
Add remaining ingredients and whisk until blended.
Allow mixture to set for 10 minutes.
Place batter onto preheated waffle iron and cook until very little steam escapes.
Recipe NotesKing Arthur Flour notes that gluten-free waffles take longer to bake than conventional waffles. Freeze any leftovers. You can reheat them in your toaster.
These little treats are great topped with more maple syrup. They can be adapted for dinner – just add some chicken for chicken and waffles. Dessert? Add fresh fruit and some whipped cream. Or ice cream and chocolate syrup. Who knew that waffles could be so versatile?
