  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of milk (lactose-free also works)
  • 1/2 cup of canola or vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt (can add black pepper if you want to be more hardcore)
  • 50-100 grams (1 1/2 to 3 1/2 ounces) of cheese (can use mozzarella, parmesan or mix) If you love cheese you can add a bit more, but it can turn out a bit greasy in the end
  • 1 cup sour starch (the Polvilho Azedo Yoki brand can be found in specialty food stores and online)
  • 1/2 cup sweet tapioca flour


  1. Turn on waffle maker. It needs to be very hot.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a blender.
  3. Pour the mixture into the waffle maker (roughly 1/3 of a cup).
  4. Cook until golden.
  5. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  6. Serve plain or add some dulce de leche or any kind of jam or honey.
  7. Also tastes great with bacon or any other breakfast side!
