    Perfect! I used the waffle plates on my Breville sear & press and followed the directions for 210’C on the top plate and 180’C on the bottom for 3 1/2 minutes and they were absolutely perfect! I used lactose free milk and added one extra spoonful of sugar 🥰

    Nice and simple waffle recipe! The only thing I did different than the directions stated to do was I only put a small pinch of salt and the 2nd time I made them I added 1 tps of drinking chocolate.

    Very delicious recipe. I beat the eggs till pale before adding to the milk. Makes light and fluffy gluten free waffles.

    These gluten free waffles freeze so easily, I doubled the recipe. My big change was using egg nog I needed to use up in place of most of the milk. It was a good choice.

    I also added extra sugar, and at least half teaspoon of nutmeg, use more if you’re a nutmeg fan. The waffles came out crispy on the outside, and soft and sweet inside. The eggnog gave them some extra umph so they were nice and fluffy, but toasty brown. I used a whisk on my eggs then tempered them with the melted butter. Added the mixture to warmed eggnog/milk mixture. Mixed the wet into the dry. This recipe could easily be altered to your own taste 🙂
