Recently I got my very first bag of Otto's Cassava Flour. Filled with excitement, I contemplated what to make first. My mind began swirling with ideas. I decided to make something, that was not these waffles. It turned out pretty good, but needed another go.
Then I had a thought, let's see if I can make waffles with the flour. My goal was to try and come up with a recipe that was simple and that many could enjoy. The first try was a complete success. There was fluff, there was flavor, there was a waffle I could enjoy! So of course I had to share it with you all as soon as possible.
- 1 and 1/4 cup cassava flour
- ¼ teaspoon arrowroot starch
- 1 ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons avocado oil
- Up to 1 and 1/4 cup of cold water
- Preheat waffle iron.
- Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Make a small hole in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients minus the water. Slowly add in the water a 1/4 cup at a time until it because slush like. You don't want it too soupy (pancake like) but thicker than that. If it becomes too wet, add a little more cassava flour.
- Grease waffle iron and pour in mix to suitable size portions for machine.
- Let them cook for just a minute or two past the timer.
- Enjoy with syrup, fresh fruit or your favorite toppings.
These are definitely more dense than my other recipe, but are more waffle like. This recipe made about 6-8 waffles, depending on the size.
