Waffles Oh Wonderful Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free Waffle Recipe
This Waffle Recipe is easy to make in your blender and comes out crisp and golden on the outside and chewy on the inside. These truly smell and taste like real Waffles. Add some delicious maple syrup and soy free, dairy free butter spread and you will be transported back to being a kid without a worry in the world, other than, “How should I add the syrup?”. Well at least this goes for me, enJoy!
I love Waffles, and always have. As a kid, my mom use to take me to a local Restaurant called Big Wheel (I think that was the name). I still remember the smell of the restaurant and the layout. In the morning you could smell everything cooking when you came in. Hints of toast toasting, waffles and pancakes on the griddles, along with the eggs and hash browns in the hot pans, filling the air. Not overpowering but it got the juices flowing, literally I am salivating as I type. It had a huge faux water wheel stuck on the side of the stone faced entry wall. Hence…Big Wheel I suppose. There were a couple video games, if you can even call them that now. It was the eighties, so pac man, pac woman, and some Atari blaster game. Oh 80’s if I could do you over again, I would not have taken you for granted! Not a care in the world. I used to love ordering Belgian Waffles along with sunny side up eggs, hash browns, bacon, toast and orange juice, adult size. My mom would let me have some of her coffee too. Well, we see where that addiction came from. I felt so special and grown up having sips of her sweetened creamy caffeine jolt. Although the euphoria could have been the Caffeine and video games. I would watch each plate the waitress was carrying, to see if our order was coming. My eyes would widen whenever I saw the nice waitress pause in front of our table, as she sat our food down. Inhaling the steamy aroma of the freshly cooked breakfast. I would put a little butter in each of the Waffle squares and follow it with warmed Maple Syrup poured methodically over each square, line by line. Apparently, I was a little fat kid with OCD, don’t judge me.
Now being older I have learned a few things. One is, I never order sunny side up eggs anymore, due to food poisoning 2x from a Pancake House Restaurant years ago. Next, as an adult, I don’t need to put butter in every crevice of the waffle, cuz it will all end up in my thighs and butt. Finally, most Syrup is actually flavored corn syrup not real Maple Syrup. I have tried a couple different real Maple Syrups and they are kind of runny and I end up using more, therefore I prefer the junk. Oh well. I like Ohgave’s Syrup, but I find Agave tends to give me headaches, well add that to my list of Sensitivities.
