The Ultimate Gluten Free Waffle

“This is a basic adaptation of the Joy Of Cooking Waffle recipe and it has become a hit around my household from all of my non food allergy challenged friends as well. I made a gigantic batch for Easter Brunch and people could not get enough! Now: you can add anywhere from 1/2 stick to 2 sticks of butter depending on how crisp or healthy you want the waffles to be. Also: I have been substituting the sugar with Blue Agave Syrup which works wonderfully. ** this recipe is gluten and corn free (if you use baking powder that is corn free, or you could always mix your own with baking soda and cream of tatar). Needless to say, you could substitute the eggs with egg substitute, and the milk with almond milk or something of that nature. serve with whipped cream (or cinnamon whipped cream), fruit, or any of your favorite toppings!”
