My love for sweet treats is pretty limited, but I loved it when my mom used to make waffles for us.
They were just unbeatable. That's why this is now her recipe in a veganized version. Quite plain and simple, probably the shortest recipe I'll ever publish. :D
Duration: 20 minutes
Makes 6-8 waffles
80g melted butter alternative
300ml (soy) milk other plant based milk alternatives should also work
15g baking powder
1 pinch of vanilla
1 pinch of salt
10g rum (optional)
Some oil or butter alternative for the waffle iron
The butter alternative should be slightly melted beforehand or at least at room temperature so that it can be easily mixed with all the other ingredients to form a smooth dough. The dough can then rest for another 10 minutes so that the flour has a little more time to hydrate and then you can actually start baking.
The good thing about this recipe is that the waffles are not so mega sweet and can therefore be refined super easy with savory ingredients such as Keese or dried tomatoes and herbs. And the dough can be stored airtight in the refrigerator for 2 days without you having to worry.
Then you just have to bring your waffle iron to temperature, brush it lightly with oil or more butter alternative and then you can bake the waffles. The dough should take about 3 minutes, but the time can of course vary depending on how hot your device is. Spread the dough as evenly as possible on the iron and maybe even use a wooden or silicone spatula to distribute the mixture better so that nothing oozes out on the side.
Then your waffles are already ready. If you want to serve them warm, I would cover them with a cloth and store them in the oven at 50°C until the last waffle is baked. Then you can enjoy them with powdered sugar, ice cream, hot cherries or delicious sauces.
If you've read this far, you might have noticed that I'm not running any adds, to improve your reading experience and because I deeply believe, that vegan recipes should be accesible to anyone.
But if you want to invite me on a virtual cup of fairtrade coffee via my PayPal.Me Link, I wouldn't say no. It would mean the world to me and helps me to keep buying ingredients for even more recipes. Thank you for cooking something vegan. 💜
