Alas! It was very popular and several people stole it off each other. I decided to buy another for myself, as the holidays were coming and I thought my daughter would like some waffles.
It was the first time in my life to make and eat waffles. I made them with eggs and milk, as I was vegetarian at the time.
This morning my daughter asked me to make her waffles. I had read in the Vegan Meringue Hits & Misses facebook group that people had successfully made waffles with Aqua Faba (water from a can of chickpeas.
So vaguely remembering the omni recipe, I started with my conversion.
The mishap that I had with these was that I forgot to oil the waffle maker until it was hot, and then it was too hard to get the oil into the grooves, and the waffles stuck a little. Yet they were crispy and delicious. I highly recommend them being made in a regular waffle maker which has been properly oiled before heating.
90gms spelt flour
90gms oat milk
1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
20gms maple syrup
- Oil and heat your waffle maker.
- Place the aqua faba in a bowl or in a jar so that you can beat it to stiff peaks. I have a stick blender with a whisk attachment, so I had my aqua faba in a tall plastic cup.
- In a bowl mix all the other ingredients to form a thick batter.
- Add two tablespoons of the stiff aqua faba to the flour mix, to loosen it a little.
- Add two more tablespoons but be a lot gentler this time, continue two tablespoons at a time until it has all been incorporated. The mix will be light and bubbly.
- Cook on your waffle maker as per instructions.
- Serve with syrup, fruit or chocolate sauce.
