Cheese Waffles (Gluten-Free)

February 22, 2019

Crispy, chewy, cheesy waffles made with cassava flour which is naturally gluten-free.

If you’ve been browsing around this blog, you’ve seen lots of recipes made with cassava root, or cassava flour.

Cassava is a root with a thick, brown skin. Inside has a white fibrous white flesh.

Cassava is grown all over South America and is consumed almost daily in many countries.

If you want to know more about cassava and its uses, check out this article I wrote a few weeks ago: WHAT IS CASSAVA AND HOW IS IT USED?

Cheesy Waffles

Look at all that cheesy goodness 😍

Are you a cheese lover? I have to warn you, is hard to stop after the first one 🙂

Chipa and Cuñapé

The batter for this recipe has the same ingredients as chipa licuadora (you might want to check this recipe), but in different amounts.

This recipe has very few ingredients. Cassava flour, cheese, eggs, milk and oil.

The ingredients for chipa licuadora are mixed in a blender, making the batter very smooth. I wanted to see the little pieces of cheese, so I mixed everything in one bowl.

So the batter looks like the one for chipa licuadora. But the flavor is more like cuñapé.

And what is cuñapé?

Cuñapé is a delicious, Bolivian cheesy bread. With a nice, firm crust and a chewy crumb. Bolivia’s favorite snack, or at least mine 😌

How to serve cheesy waffles

A very popular South American dessert is a slice of cheese, spread with a layer of guava jam.

That sweet – savory combo is my favorite way to serve these cheesy waffles.

  • Honey. I love honey, and it goes well with cheese.
  • Pizza sauce goes amazingly well with these waffles.

  1. Omg these look amazing!! I HAVE to try this this weekend. I’ll be on the lookout for cassava starch. I think I’ll be able to find it. 🙂

    1. You are right. No baking powder or soda. To make sour milk, just add one tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk, and let it sit for 5 minutes. We don’t have buttermilk here, but I think you can replace it for sour milk. I hope you like them!

  2. Anything involving chadder is definitely a big YES to me. I never imagine I could make cheddar waffles. This is a something really new to me. I must give this recipe a try. Looks and sounds absolutely amazing.
