Waffles

"... In the morning, I'm makin' waffles!" -- Donkey, Shrek

2         eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1     cup sweet or white rice flour
1/2   cup oat flour
1/2   cup tapioca

2     tsp vanilla
3     tsp baking powder
1/4   cup melted butter

Waffle iron

It takes a bit of experience to get the dough to be just the right viscosity. Enjoy with real maple syrup or with stewed fruit, especially apricots or sour cherries. Or try the milk sauce, below.

Decadent Milk Sauce

There is an amazingly decadent white sauce (milk pudding?) that the Russian Mennonites have with their waffles. It's a bit fiddly.

1      litre milk
3/4    cup   milk
3      egg   yolks
3      egg   whites (stiff peaks)
8      tbsp  flour
1/2    tsp   vanilla
1      cup   sugar
  1. bring the litre of milk slowly to a gentle boil - add the sugar
  2. meanwhile mix the 3/4 cups of milk with the egg yolks and the flour (add cold water if it is too gluey) - make a paste.
  3. add some hot milk to the paste to heat it up.
  4. when the milk boils add the paste to the hot milk
  5. take the milk off of the heat and stir in the vanilla and the egg whites.

Some Comments

Be careful when boiling the milk. It will foam up considerably when it boils and can easily overflow the pot. It also burns easily if the heat is too high.
