Gluten-Free Belgian Waffles

I think that my kids feared that gluten-free Belgian waffles would never be a part of their weekend routine. We have never owned a waffle maker until yesterday. I am not a fan of single-use appliances but my daughter convinced me that a waffle maker could make waffles for breakfast AND dessert so it is actually multi-purpose. She won me over.

My kids live for weekend breakfasts with my parents in the summer because my dad will make them waffles. While eating them, they always lament the lack of waffles back home. Such guilt! This weekend, I finally broke down and bought a waffle maker after much research and hemming and hawing over the decision. The weather was so gorgeous that we decided to take a walk to make our waffle maker purchase…

The kid parade to buy a waffle maker…

The kids were definitely a part of the buying process – when I tried to buy a single, round waffle maker there was a major protest in the aisles of Macy’s. After checking out some reviews, we settled on the 4 waffle Belgian waffle maker from Cusinart. It cost about $60 – maybe a little high-end for an almost-single-use appliance but so far, it seems like it was a good choice. Using the recipe below, I was able to make two quick batches of waffles and feed everybody in minutes. The waffle maker cleaned up so easily – my other wish was for removable waffle plates but this maker cleaned up fine.

Everyone enjoyed our first waffle adventure! The requests for different types of waffles have already begun – chocolate waffles next time, perhaps?

  • 3 cups gluten-free flour (We used Bob's Red Mill GF Baking Flour)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cup milk (we used 2%)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs , slightly beaten


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add milk, oil, and eggs. Whisk to combine. Batter will be thick.
  2. Preheat your waffle maker. Spray with a non stick cooking spray.
  3. Use about 1/2 cup of waffle batter for each Belgian waffle. My 4-waffle tray used 2 cups total. Close lid and watch for the steam to stop or use your machine's indicator light.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings! My kids love maple syrup, whipped cream, and homemade strawberry sauce. Enjoy!

  1. Love the kid parade to buy the waffle maker. I am not a fan of single use appliances, too. It is funny because few days ago, I mentioned to my fiance that I want a waffle maker. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. I couldn’t life without my waffle maker! I use the single large Belgium waffle maker from Hamilton Beach and it’s amazing! I really don’t have to even wash it went done, everything some out so clean, no mess, no stick!

    1. Thank you! I will tell Julia you said so. 😉 She was so pleased with herself at breakfast yesterday! It was very cute.
