Wheat Flour Yeasted Waffle

Overnight yeasted wheat flour waffle, October 2012

For those who can tolerate wheat, I’m sharing this recipe that was a favorite from the days when my husband and I could eat gluten-containing foods together. It’s a delicate yeasted waffle that you make the night before.

I haven’t been able to successfully use yeast with grain-free, gluten-free breads, but if you need a waffle recipe with these requirements, my alternative Almond Flour Waffles are every bit as satisfying.

A teaspoon of lemon or orange zest adds a pleasing hint of citrus flavor.
