Gluten Free Waffle Recipe—Key to Imprint Breakfasts & More!
Updated January 2, 2017
A great gluten free waffle recipe is filled with legend, history and enough honeycomb imprints to hold your favorite toppings!
“The first waffle is said to have been made in 13th century England. A crusader wearing his armor accidentally sat on some freshly baked oat cakes. The cakes were flattened and bore deep imprints of the steel links. However, he spread butter on the cakes and ate them. His wife, delighted with the way butter stayed in the imprints from the armor, made him put it on once a week and sit on fresh oat cakes. They were called ‘warfres’, meaning flat honeycomb-like cakes. Dutch colonists brought their cherished ‘waffre’ irons to America. They were long handled and very heavy to hold over an open fire.” --Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book. 1950. McGraw-Hill Book Company: 75.
If you prefer a quick and easy breakfast treat, try cooking my gluten free waffle recipe in the waffle iron we use at home to get those beautiful honeycomb imprints, and then garnish with your favorite toppings.

Does your family have a signature gluten free waffle recipe topping passed down through the generations? Ours comes from New England, where my husband’s ancestors were among the original settlers . . .
. . . softened butter and warmed maple syrup.
Another classic topping combination is sliced fresh strawberries garnished with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.
Consider trying something different for a change; for example, top your waffles with in-season fresh fruit and a scoop of homemade ice cream.
Sliced fresh strawberries or other in-season fresh fruit, nut butters and flavored syrups, whipped honey butter and warmed applesauce, jams or jellies garnished with a sprinkling of sifted confectioners’ sugar . . . these are all well-loved gluten free waffle recipe toppings folks enjoy.
I intentionally made this gluten free waffle recipe to produce a large quantity of waffles so you would have enough to please your extended family and guests for holiday brunches and Sunday suppers.
Make extra to freeze for a quick workday breakfast. Just pop a frozen waffle in your toaster or toaster oven for a quick eat.
