  • --WAFFLES--
  • 2 ½ cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 tsp. xanthun gum (omit if your flour blend contains it)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • ½ ounce red food coloring
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ⅓-½ cup milk
  1. --WAFFLES--
  2. Preheat your waffle iron.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the gluten-free flour, xanthun gum, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, egg yolks, vanilla, vinegar, and red food coloring together.
  5. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture, mixing well until no lumps remain.
  6. In another large bowl, or in the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the egg whites using a hand mixer or the whisk attachment on your stand mixer, until stiff peaks form.
  7. Very gently fold the egg whites into the batter, making sure not to overmix.
  8. Pour ⅔-¾ cup of batter onto your hot waffle iron (or more depending on the size of yours), being careful not to overfill. Close the lid, and allow to cook until golden brown - about 6-7 minutes (or until your waffle iron’s timer goes off).
  9. Heat your oven to warm (170 degrees) and once the waffles are done, keep them on a plate in the oven to stay warm until all are cooked and ready to serve.
  11. Using your hand mixer or hand-held mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter together until fluffy. Add in vanilla and combine.
  12. Add in the powdered sugar, and mix until fully combined.
  13. While the mixer is going on low speed, slowly drizzle in the milk, until your desired consistency is reached.
  14. Drizzle the cream cheese glaze over the waffles, and dig in!
Waffles can be wrapped and placds in a freezer bag, and frozen for up to 3 months.
