Gluten-Free Hot Waffles

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Just want to share with you my recipe for gluten-free waffles today. We have them hot, served with rhubarb compote, mascarpone vanilla cream and a light dust of icing sugar. My children choose to have them served cut and eaten with slightly sweetened plain yogurt and macerated tangerine segments.

Gluten-Free Hot Waffles
by Arfi Binsted

1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
2 tsps baking powder
2 Tbs caster sugar
a little pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cup buttermilk (half milk and half yogurt)
1/2 cup melted butter

Hot Waffles with Macerated Tangerine Segments and Sweetened Plain Yogurt by ab2010

Sift together gluten-free flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in caster sugar, make a well, set aside. Whisk egg yolks and combine with buttermilk and melted butter. Pour egg mixture into the middle of the sifted flour, whisk to combine. In another bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff and fold into the egg-flour mixture. The batter should be quite thick, a little thicker from pancake batter. Spoon the batter on to one plate of the preheated and lightly greased waffle iron. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot with your favourite topping. Have a great breakfast!

They sound lovely with the fruit and marscarpone! The beaten eggwhites would give them a great fluffy texture too!

@greentea: tepung gluten ga sama dg tepung bogasari protein rendah. tepung gluten sama sekali ga mengandung gluten. pada umumnya merupakan campuran dari tepung beras, tepung kentang, tepung maizena, dan tepung2 lainnya. tepung besan juga termasuk gluten-free. ga tau kalo di Indo, mungkin perlu memesan di TBK tertentu?

Foreigners or expatriates who live in Indonesia may find it hard to find gluten-free food in Indonesia. Gluten-free rice cake is hard to find also. What I mean “rice cake” here is Not the Indonesian soft rice cake, but those western-style crunchy rice cakes, like the ones produced by Quaker in the US or Sun Rice in Australia.

A few years ago, after some research, my wife decided to produce and sell gluten-free rice cakes like the one sold in western countries (United States, Australia, Canada, UK). My wife decided to make rice cakes because she has passions for children, especially children with autism, celiac and ADHD-hyperactive. She feels that not only rice cakes gluten-free but also because rice cakes can be a healthier alternative to breads that are produced or made locally. Unlike bread, rice cakes can naturally last a lot longer without any preservative because rice cakes are dry (low water content). Rice cakes are made in a vacuum process to make them bigger and crunchy without any chemical substance. In summary, the rice cakes that my wife make has no chemical additives at all. We don’t put food coloring, food preservative, food flavor, flavor enhancer, artificial sweetener or any other chemical additives that may be hazardous to one’s health. Don’t get me wrong eating bread is not unhealthy, but some bread is just not healthy. The same issue here with the tofu in Indonesia: Eating tofu is not unhealthy, but most tofu producers in Indonesia put formalin, a dangerous chemical substance to preserve the tofu, so that the tofu can last longer. So in reality, eating Indonesian tofu is actually harmful to one’s health in the long run.

So far we have received orders & repeat orders for our rice cakes from some expatriates / foreigners who work in Indonesia or travel to Indonesia and they are all satisfied with our rice cake. Our rice cake brand name is “N_asiKriuk Debbie”.

Not many Indonesians know and eat these western style rice cakes. And as far as we know, we are the only local maker in Indonesia. Our distribution is quite limited to only several stores. We understand that western style rice cakes are not widely available. Expatriates or foreigners or travelers who need gluten-free rice cakes like the ones sold in their home countries might have difficulties in finding them. So if there are expatriates or foreigners or travelers with celiac disease and want to find gluten-free rice cake in Indonesia, they can contact us. We enjoy friendship with foreigners who visit our country and will more than happy to give them information or advice and support regarding gluten-free food and where to find them in Indonesia.

We hope foreigners with celiac disease enjoy their visit to Indonesia. We, Indonesian, living in our own country certainly has more knowledge and information about our own country and we certainly don’t mind sharing with foreigners information regarding gluten-free food or any other information that they might want to know while they are in Indonesia. We will help them the best we could.

Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,
