Gluten Free Waffles

I love waffles, and it's been a real struggle for me to find a good recipe. Back in June when I had baby #3, my friend Jessica brought these waffles to our family for dinner one night. It was like absolute heaven!! She brought berries and whipped cream to have on top and it was so great. My husband and kids even loved them. The best part about this recipe is that it seems to be very forgiving. I've used the flour mixtures listed below, but when I was low on something or out, I just substituted some corn starch or sorghum flour here and there and still had great results. In my experience, they do need a little longer to cook than "regular" waffles, so when the light on my waffle maker comes on, I just wait another minute or so. You'll love these!

Gluten Free Waffles

1 1/4 cups rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup potato starch
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk (I've used cow, vanilla soy, and vanilla almond...ALL good)
1/2 cup cooking oil or butter, melted
 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix dry ingredients together.  In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together.  
Then add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well blended and there are no lumps.  Spoon batter onto waffle iron and follow your waffle iron's directions.
Makes 12 to 16 (4-inch) waffles.
