Gluten Free Belgium Waffles

Who doesn’t love a fresh Belgium style waffle? We substituted the wheat flour for our very own ‘ulu (breadfruit) flour in this super simple waffle recipe. It literally takes only 5 minutes to make a delicious waffle.

First, plug in your household belgium waffle maker and allow to heat up. While its warming, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well (I use a wire wisk):

3/4 cup ‘ulu flour

1-1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 cup sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoon butter

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoon buttermilk

By the time the above ingredients are combined, the waffle maker ‘ready’ light should be on. Use a spatula to spread batter into waffle iron. Close the lid and rotate the waffle maker to the cook position (follow the cooking directions that your specific waffle maker came with). This recipe is essentially 1/4 of the recipe that came with our waffle iron. We like ‘ulu flour best when its fresh. For this reason I only make 1/4 the recipe. One waffle is quite filling and easily shared by two. One important thing to note is that ‘ulu flour is more dense than regular wheat flour. The additional two tablespoons of buttermilk are needed to make your waffle turn out light and fluffy. We top our waffles with whatever is fresh and in season. This waffle is topped with a drizzle of local honey and fresh mango and garnished with mint and starfruit.
