Williams-Sonoma Gluten-Free Bellegem Waffle Mix

For Easter breakfast, I made waffles with Williams-Sonoma Gluten-Free Bellegem Waffle Mix.  We like to make waffles with Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix, and Cup4CupPamela's, and Namaste waffle mixes, but the waffles we made this morning were the best I have had at home since my celiac diagnosis.

Williams-Sonoma Gluten-Free Bellegem Waffle Mix contains egg, and the package has a warning that it is, "prepared and packaged using machines that may come in contact with milk, soy, tree nuts (pecans, coconut)."

I followed the directions, whisking 60 grams (4 tablespoons) of melted unsalted butter with 1 1/2 cups of warm water (temperature checked with my food thermometer) in a large bowl.  I then added 280 grams (2 cups) of the waffle mix, and whisked until just combined.

After letting the mix sit for 15 minutes, as directed, I stirred the batter one final time, and made mini Mickey waffles in my waffle iron, sprayed with cooking oil before making each batch.  I was able to make 12 small waffles, and each batch took four minutes to cook.

I served our waffles with bananas foster, using a recipe I was recently given at Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Bananas Foster 


1/2 C (4 T) butter
1/2 C light brown sugar - packed
Pinch of salt
2 oz (1/4 C) heavy cream
2 bananas - cut into 1/4 inch slices


Melt butter with brown sugar and salt over medium heat in a saute pan.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and add heavy cream.  Fold in the banana slices and serve.

Recipe Notes

Because I used salted butter today, I skipped the pinch of salt.  I turned the burner to medium high heat after the butter and brown sugar melted, and they quickly came to a boil.  I constantly stirred the butter and sugar mixture, because I was afraid it would stick to my stainless steel pan.  After adding the banana slices, I returned the pan to a burner turned to the lowest heat setting to keep the bananas foster warm while I cooked several batches of waffles.

The waffles were light and crispy, and perfectly sweet on their own.  There is enough mix in the container to make two batches of waffles.

You can purchase Williams-Sonoma Gluten-Free Bellegem Waffle Mix at Williams-Sonoma stores, which can be found locally in Winter Park and at The Mall at Millenia, or on their website here.

February 26, 2017 Update

This morning, we made Belgium waffles with pancetta syrup.  We had to grease our waffle maker well, or the waffles were difficult to remove.

For the pancetta syrup, we cooked a 5 ounce container of Columbus Foods diced pancetta in a small stainless steel pan over medium high heat.  When it started to brown, we removed the extra grease, then added Simply Balanced organic maple syrup to the pan.  It was so delicious, I think we will be serving our waffles with pancetta syrup again in the near future.
