Yogurt Cake/ Waffles

This is a yogurt cake made on a waffle iron.
They are fantastic. Even though they look kinda meh. (That's not almost-burned. That's golden brown...)

There was a tub of yogurt on its' last days in the back of the fridge. I dunno about you, but about halfway through a tub, I get tired of yogurt. And it just sits there.

Fortunately, I found this recipe that uses a cup and a half of yogurt. Original recipe found here at thekitchn.com. Converted to be GF here:

Yogurt Cake

1 1/2 cups strawberry yogurt
1 T. strawberry preserves
2/3 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups gluten free flour- 3/4 c each brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch
1/8 t. xanthan gum
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch freshly ground nutmeg

Pour ~1/2 c. of batter into a preheated waffle iron and cook for a few minutes- I check to see if they're done when the steaming has calmed down. Don't overfill because they rise and spill out of the sides and it's a pain in the butt.

They turn out soft but the outside sorta caramelizes and it's delightful. Subtle strawberry taste. Awesome with tea.

Makes 12 waffles.

I am writing to tell you about Vermont Culinary Vacations (www.culinaryvermont.com). I am Deborah Krasner, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author, three year diagnosed celiac. I host the vacations and teach all the classes. I've been doing this for a decade, but for the last three years, all the vacations have been gf. I've kept it quiet, however, and not advertised them as such. Guests usually don't notice anything but how good the food tastes and how great they feel. They are often surprised at the end of the vacation when I reveal the gf truth. Now I am ready to let the celiac community know about my vacations, and invite everyone to look at the website and see if it's something of interest to them.
