Gluten Free Chocolate Waffles

Gluten Free Chocolate Waffles

Breakfast, in the sense it exists in other countries, does not exist here I must admit. Many people don’t eat at all before they go to work. I, myself, cannot eat anything in the morning apart from a glass of milk. My son too, he either drinks a glass of milk or he eats cereals with milk. I have no idea why we have this mentality towards breakfast, but truth is that we do. I don’t know if this happens because of the crazy everyday rhythms we are living in or because we eat our dinner quite late and we are also late sleepers as well.

Gluten Free Chocolate Waffles

Regarding dinner I will tell you a funny story that happened to me the first day I tried to go out and have dinner when I went to the US to study. Here restaurants serve dinner until 12 to 1 o’clock at night. People usually go out for dinner between 9 and 11 o’clock. So, there I was a foreign student in a foreign country and one day I decided to go out for dinner by myself. That was a big step for me, considering the fact that I was a very shy person and wouldn’t dare dine alone. Anyway, I repressed my feelings and all my fears and decided to check the local restaurants alone. I knew that eating habits there were somewhat different from ours, so I said to myself that nine o’clock would be a good time to go out and dine, instead of ten I was accustomed to here. Needless to say, that I found out the hard way that in Manchester NH, there wasn’t any place open at that time. I was starving to death and in all restaurants people were mopping the flour and cleaning the tables lol. I went back to my apartment tired and hungry and ordered a pizza which, from what I found out, was just about the only thing I could order at that time. That was a memory I will never forget.

Gluten Free Chocolate Waffles

So, going back to breakfast, as people we are not accustomed to eating a proper breakfast and also we do not have brunch. I think the only time we eat a full breakfast or brunch is when we are on vacations. Especially brunch is something we never prepare at home; neither do we go out for.

Nevertheless, weekends give me a chance to prepare something a bit different from the usual glass of milk and also have time to sit down and enjoy it without watching the clock and be in a hurry. One of these weekends, I decided to make waffles and since I had a pack of gluten-free flour in my pantry, I thought I should try making them gluten free. Thankfully, no one of us has a gluten problem but I know many people who do. So, if any of you is gluten intolerant or a member of your family these waffles are ideal.

Needless to say they were delicious and because temperatures were quite high, I added some of my homemade ice cream and some of my caramel sauce. Well, I think picture says it all, don’t you think?

Για την Σάλτσα Καραμέλας
  1. Σε μια βαθιά κατσαρόλα, σε μέτρια φωτιά, βάλτε τη ζάχαρη και το νερό.
  2. Μην ανακατέψετε, απλά κουνήστε λίγο την κατσαρόλα να διαλυθεί η ζάχαρη.
  3. Αφήστε να βράσει μέχρι να πάρει ένα βαθύ κεχριμπαρένιο χρώμα.
  4. Βγάλτε από τη φωτιά και ρίξτε προσεκτικά, λίγο λίγο την κρέμα γάλακτος ανακατεύοντας συνέχεια.

  3. Ρίχνουμε τα υγρά στα στεγνά συστατικά και ενσωματώνουμε.
  4. Μπορεί να υπάρξουν κάποια γρομπαλάκια μέσα στο μίγμα, είναι απολύτως εντάξει.
  5. Στο σημείο αυτό ρίχνουμε τα κομματάκια σοκολάτας και ανακατεύουμε.
  6. Καλύψτε το μίγμα και αφήστε να ξεκουραστεί σε θερμοκρασία δωματίου περίπου μισή ώρα.
  7. Ζεσταίνετε τη βαφλιέρα σύμφωνα με τις οδηγίες του κατασκευαστή σας και ρίξτε την αναγκαία ποσότητα για να γίνει μια ωραία, αφράτη βάφλα.
  8. Η δική μου βαφλιέρα πήρε ⅔ φλιτζανιού από το μίγμα.
  9. Σερβίρετε τις βάφλες με παγωτό και σάλτσα καραμέλας.

    Wow! I think I’d serve these for dessert!
    We’ve run into the opposite problem when we’re in Europe – especially when we used to travel with young children who were hungry early!

    Gorgeous waffles, Katerina! I would be so happy to find late serving restaurants in Greece! I think we eat in similar way: I cannot touch anything when I wake up (except for coffee), I have my lunch at 1pm and my dinner around 8h30-9pm. I think it’s the way people in most warmer European countries eat… (and even in moderately warm France). Here in my city (every city is different in Switzerland…) people eat around 8pm and most restaurants don’t open before 7pm, but I have a friend from Japan with whom I can never dine: she eats at 6 and I’m absolutely not hungry at this time…

  28. 17
  29. Oh my gosh, the picture does say it all!! Wrap one of those up and you’d have an icecream cone too :-) Well, I think for a gal that’s not used to brunch you nailed it with your waffles!

    That would be a fantastic dessert. Adjusting to the different hours for eating was a challenge for us, too. Glad the pizza guy delivered at least :)

  48. Diane says:

    Yes, Katerina, Your pictures say it all. So scrumptious! I love the five of heart waffle iron too! A pretty waffle indeed. But the dripping caramel sauce and ice cream take this breakfast to “Infinity and beyond!” Sorry too many grandkids:)

    The waffles look amazing topped with ice cream and caramel sauce, Katerina!!! I’ve also had similar late supper experiences, both in the U.S. and Ontario, Canada…I’m very thankful that Montreal is like Athens, when it comes to food and entertainment there is no time restriction…Have a great weekend, XO

  52. Sandra says:

    When we lived in Germany we loved the late night dinners. It’s such a shame that the custom hasn’t caught on to many restaurants here in the States. With a lovely chocolate waffle recipe there is no need to go anywhere! Adding the homemade ice cream sounds scrumptious. Yummy!

  53. 30
  54. I love that you are experimenting with gluten free! My kids (who are also gluten free) are begging me to make these for them this weekend :-)

  55. 31
  56. I love your New Hampshire story! I do not usually eat breakfast, either. However, I may make these waffles for dinner!!

    They look absolutely delicious.
    I am the opposite – breakfast is probably the biggest dish during the whole day, I hardly ever eat supper and I cannot imagine eating after 6 pm.;)

  97. Marion says:

    Κι εγώ το ίδιο Κατερίνα μου. Το πρωί οταν παω στη δουλειά ενα ποτήρι γάλα πίνω μόνο.
    Εκτός από τις διακοπές που τσακίζω το πρωινό στην κυριολεξία. Τώρα πως γίνεται αυτό…χιχι
    Είμαστε φαν της βάφλας οικογενειακώς. Είναι και σοκαλατένιες το καλύτερο.
    Πρέπει να παρω βαφλιέρα οπωσδήποτε!!!

    Φιλιά πολλά

  99. mjskitchen says:

    You don’t eat until 10 pm? Really? I’m in bed by then.:) That’s very interesting that your restaurants stay open to midnight. Yep…here, 9 pm is the standard closing time. Bobby and I usually go out around 6. :) How could someone refuse these waffles? I would definitely feel like a kid again eating these.

  100. 54
  101. Liz says:

    What an interesting comparison of our cultures and eating times. I wake up hungry and have to eat within a half hour or I get cranky :) I’d love your beautiful waffles for breakfast and then again for dessert!

  103. Barbara says:

    I’m smiling because we found the reverse when we visited Greece. My daughter was living in Paris at the time, so we were used to late dinners, but when we showed up for an “early” reservation at 9:30, the restaurant wasn’t even open! We waited outside for someone to open the door and we didn’t eat until 10:30 or 11.
    I think that’s why so many European countries serve tea mid afternoon…nobody can wait for dinner to eat! :)
    Love breakfast…need it before I work out in the morning. I only eat fruit and an egg (I don’t drink milk) but sure wouldn’t make it to lunch without more than a glass of milk!
    Your waffles look great!

  104. 56
  105. Amy @ Ms. Toody Goo Shoes says:

    Funny story about your dinner in the US! I guess it depends where you are – in NY or LA, you are sure to find restaurants open late. When we were in Italy in July, we were the only ones eating at 7:30pm! The waffles look amazing!

  107. peps says:

    Πόσο με τρελλαίνει να βλέπω το παγωτό να λιώνει πάνω στη ζεστή βάφλα!!!

  113. Sues says:

    These waffles look perfect! And your story about being in the US made me laugh. I live in Boston where things are a little more awake, but I went to college in NH and pretty much everything closes early! I’d love to visit Greece!

  115. Hmm, yummy, beautiful photos, Katarina! I love my breakfast! :)

    Σου έχω κάτι καλύτερο! Στο Salzburg της Αυστρίας, στις 7 όλα τα εστιατόρια ήταν κλειστά και στις 8 κλείνανε και τα ζαχαροπλαστεία, χιχι!
    Πολύ λαχταριστές οι βάφλες σου και το παγωτό υπέροχο!
    Καλή εβδομάδα :)
