Gluten-free Sourdough Waffles

Gluten-free Sourdough Waffles – need I say more?!

Everyone feeling, like I’m overdoing the whole sourdough thing a bit? Might well be, but it’s so essential in the gluten-free kitchen. The thing is, that gluten-free flours don’t rise naturally & also they don’t stick together naturally (the missing gluten part and all that…). If you add some sourdough to your mix though, you’ll be surprised how well the dough forms and how well these waffles (or whatever else you’re baking) rises. Really, you should try it. They even convinced my gluten-eating family: “They don’t even taste gluten-free.”. Probably one of the nicest compliments a gluten-free cook can get…

What about us Vegans?

While I try to eat as little animal products as possible, it is quite the challenge to bake gluten-free & vegan. I’ve tried a few thing and they were okay, but every now & again I indulge in a little “proper” soul food. BUT:

  • you can replace the egg-whites with aquafaba.
  • and the egg yolk with flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax seeds + 6 tbsp water in this case)
  • you could also try and use 2 mashed bananas. It won’t raise as much, but it’d be tasty af (I’d reduce the sugar amount in this case though, or it could become too sweet)

Now, without further ado, the recipe ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Equipment

  • Waffle Maker

Ingredients

  • 200 g (brown rice) sourdough starter from the fridge
  • 150 g brown rice flour
  • 150 g buckwheat flour
  • 50 g white rice flour + some more, if too liquid
  • 75 g coconut sugar
  • 200 g oat milk (or any other) + some more, if too thick
  • 2 eggs seperated
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil very soft or melted
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar / extract
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

Topping Ideas

  • berries
  • apple puree
  • yoghurt
  • icing sugar

Instructions

  • Start with adding your sourdough starter to a bowl & add the brown rice flour. Mix it well (it will be quite dry).
  • Next, add the buckwheat & white rice flour & baking powder, as well as the egg yolks, milk & coconut sugar. Mix until everything's incorporated.
  • Last, but not least, add the coconut oil & cinnamon & vanilla sugar / extract & incorporate.
  • Now, add the pinch of salt to your egg whites and bbeat them until stiff and fold them into your waffle dough. The dough is going to be quite thick, which is perfect for waffles.
  • Bake the waffles as per instructions on your waffle maker & serve topped with icing sugar, yoghurt, berries and / or apple (or other fruit) puree.
Chocoholic?

Well, me being me, I got a little carried away & decided I wanna change it up a litte. If you want to do the same follow these steps just before baking the waffles:

  • Take enough dough for 2 waffles & add it to a separate bowl.
  • Add 2 tbsp of baking cacao to that bowl & mix well. 
  • Now to get the marble look, add the normal dough to the waffle maker first, but don’t spread it out evenly, just drop a few bits here & there.
  • Then, fill the holes with the cacao dough
  • Bake as usual & enjoy.

Not chocolatey enough? Yea, not for me either. I made a waffle from the cacao dough itself & it was a fabulous idea. For the extra chocolate satisfaction, I can recommend adding some chocolate spread, chocolate chips or some. cacao nibs to the dough before baking it. 😍

I hope you guys enjoyed this recipe. Let me know how you get on making my gluten-free sourdough waffles (below in the comments or use #carroskitchen on instagram). You can also follow  me on Instagram so you won’t miss any updates.

Gluten-Free Sourdough Pancakes

Gluten-free Sourdough Pancakes

“Oh, lovely Sunday, you’re my favourite of all days, please give me gluten-free sourdough pancakes!” 

As Sundays are my favourites, I tend to celebrate them with a big brunch. A highlight are my gluten-free sourdough pancakes, which taste just like “real” American pancakes.

I love to prepare a big brunch, because I also celebrate life & everything I am currently happy for. I tend to take some time for myself. My Sunday brunch is an entirely stress-free zone and I avoid looking at my phone, the laptop or anything else. It’s just me, my pancakes & some music.

A lot of you are probably thinking: “Why more breakfast recipes?!”. Well, to be honest, I only recently made these pancakes for the first time and they’re the best gluten-free pancakes I’ve ever met. Now, for me, this was reason enough to post them. Also, a couple of days ago, it was #worldpancakeday – so this is my contribution. Without further ado: The Recipe! ⬇️⬇️

Fluffy Gluten-free Sourdough Pancakes

Gluten-free pancakes, that don't even taste gluten-free. Fluffy, delicious & so easy!!
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Resting Time30 mins
Total Time1 hr
Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American, gluten-free
Keyword: breakfast, gluten-free, soy-free, vegetarian
Servings: 10 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 200 g sourdough here: brown rice sourdough
  • 120 g coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 100 g brown rice flour
  • 100 g ground almonds / almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil + some more for frying
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Before you do anything else today, start mixing the dough as it has to rest for 30 minutes.
  • To start the pancakes, mix sugar / maple syrup, eggs & butter until creamy.
  • Next, add the remaining ingredients, one at a time and mix until everything is fully incorporated. It should be a thick dough, just like usual pancake dough. If it's a little too thick, you might add some more milk.
  • Before we continue, let the dough rest for roughly 30 minutes. Ideally to prepare the table, get dressed, have a shower or whatever else is part of your morning-routine. 🙂
  • Now, after 30 minutes, place a pan on medium heat and add some coconut oil, once hot. Add pancake dough, one at a time & fry for roughly 2 minutes on each side.
  • Place finished pancakes on a plate & store in an oven on 50 degrees until all of the pancakes are finished.
  • Serve with fresh fruits, some seeds, cacao nibs & maple syrup. If you're feeling creative, you might even wanna add some apple puree* - you've got 30 minutes resting time you could use to make some. 🙂 (I always prepare some ahead of time and have it stored in the freezer / fridge). You might also add some whipped cream (vegan or not) or clotted cream.

For overnight sourdough pancakes

  • Mix Sourdough with 100g rice flour & 100g water and let it rest overnight. Proceed with the rest as above.

Notes

*Apple puree
For the apple puree, simply cut 1 kg apples. Add them to a pot and add a little water - just about 1cm. Also, add some cinnamon, around 2 tbps. Let the apples cook with the lid on for roughly 20-30 minutes, until soft. Either puree with a food processor or a blender and store in glass jars. If you want to keep it longer then a week, it's better if you freeze them.
As for the apples, I use whichever ones I get from the market, but remember green ones are slightly sour & red ones are slightly sweeter. You could also mix them.

Now, I’m obviously wondering, what your favourite pancake recipes are. So please don’t hesitate and tell me; just use the “comment” space below. 🙂 Also, please comment below, if you have any further questions or if you made these pancakes and you took a picture. I’d love to see your results. 

For all those, disappointed, because this is not a French Crepes recipe: Don’t worry. There’ll be one very soon! 🙂
