Soft and moist, French waffles don’t really have that crunchiness typical of Belgian waffles. They are sweeter and commonly served warm, with just a bit of sirup or sugar. This particular recipe is a gluten-free adaptation of my mother’s favourite waffles. Perfect for brunch on a Sunday morning!

Ingredients: (for 4 persons)

  • 100g of glutinous rice flour
  • 140g of rice flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 50g of raw sugar (here coconut sugar, but any sugar you like is fine)
  • 1 pinch of salt (2g)
  • 10g of gluten-free baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 500mL of soya milk
  • 150g of butter
  • 1 grated vanilla bean

Preparation: 10 minutes

Resting time: 20 minutes


  1. In a bowl, sieve the flours together with the baking powder, the salt and the xanthan gum.
  2. Add the sugar then add the eggs one by one.
  3. Melt the butter and mix it with the soya milk. Add the vanilla seeds.
  4. Mix carefully the milk with the flours and eggs.
  5. Let the batter rest in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before using.
  6. Heat up the waffle iron for 5 minutes and place a small amount of batter in the middle using a ladle. Leave until golden brown on both sides.

Last tip: to avoid lumps in the batter, add the milk little by little. To have perfectly formed waffles on both sides, turn upside down your waffle iron just after closing.
