I make my vanilla einkorn waffles in a Texas shape using my Texas-shaped waffle maker. It takes about 4-5 tablespoons for me to finish filling up the waffle maker. Your waffle maker may require more or less batter, based on the size. Be careful not to overfill the waffle maker with batter. Use a tablespoon or a measuring cup with a 1/4 cup of batter to fill up the waffle iron with batter.
I strongly recommend adding the almond extract. Almond extract is commonly used in baking to bring out the taste of vanilla.
These waffles are best topped with powdered sugar, honey, maple syrup, or jam.
Einkorn is my most-used ancient grain flour for baking. It has a great texture, and this applies to einkorn waffles as well. I have more einkorn waffle recipes for you to find here. Einkorn is also fantastic for making flapjacks, in my opinion. I have many einkorn flour pancake recipes for you to read about here.
Einkorn is known among those with wheat sensitivities as an ancient grain that is easier to digest. Einkorn flour only has 14 chromosomes, which is significantly less than the quintessential wheat at the grocery store. The gluten-sensitive members of my household tend to digest ancient grains, such as einkorn, spelt, and rye, better than modern wheat. However, you should be careful and talk to a medical professional first if this is something you’re looking into.
If you frequently use einkorn flour, I recommend trying to buy einkorn berries in 50lb bags. It costs about 20% less per pound compared to buying 5lbs of einkorn berries.
