It wasn’t actually love at first sight when we first met with the waffle iron couple years ago. My attempt to make waffles for a father’s day brunch turned out a bit of a disaster: The waffle batter burned on both sides of the waffle iron, if not enough rest of the batter was running all over the kitchen.
However while spending the past summer at my parents’ I thought why not give the waffle iron a second chance with an enhanced batter mixture. You can imagine my nervousness as I first very carefully greased the waffle iron with a bit of coconut oil and then started baking the first waffle. What a relief it was to open the lift and realise I had actually managed to make one excellent waffle! And here’s the lesson of the story: if I can do it, I bet you can too. 😉
So on this beautiful sunny Sunday, you should definitely surprise your loved ones with some delicious homemade waffles!
Here’s how to do it:
(makes approx. 4-6 waffles)
¾ cup buckwheat flour
½ cup brown rice flour
1 cup plant milk of choice
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp cardamom
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
- In a large bowl mix the flours and spices together, stir well.
- Pour in the plant milk, melted coconut oil, agave nectar/maple syrup and vanilla extract, and stir well to get an even mixture.
- Turn on your waffle iron. Start with a lower level, as the waffles might burn easily. Grease the iron with a bit of coconut oil. Add a couple tablespoons of the batter, let set for a little while and close the lid. The waffles will need 2-3 minutes to bake. Check on them regularly. Open the lid carefully and detach the waffle from the grid with a fork.
Serve with fresh fruits and berries, enjoy! 🙂
Happy weekend lovelies!
