Black Forest Teff Waffles

Teff flour makes these waffles extremely light and fluffy … and who can resist chocolate & cherries for breakfast? And here’s a bonus … it’s gluten-free! ~ Marlys

Note: Teff flour may sometimes be difficult to find, but check the gluten-free or health food sections in your local grocery store. If they sell the Bob’s Red Mill products (love them!), they’ll likely have it. Or you can order it from the Bob’s Red Mill site.

Waffle irons have come a long way. They used to be large, heavy, and only made square waffles. Now they come in all sizes and some even make hearts or other fun shapes. (This one makes circular waffles.) The plates are nonstick-coated and the whole device flips over for cooking. With a timer, you can even adjust the browning for a perfect waffle every time. This tool will make you want waffles more often!
