Ingredients

Aquafaba Waffles:

  • 250 g (2 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 2-4 Tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250 ml (1 cup) unsweetened non-dairy milk (I use soy)
  • 1 tsp cider or white wine vinegar
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) aquafaba (from 1 tin of chickpeas)
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) sunflower oil (or another neutral oil)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Non-Aquafaba Waffles:

  • 250 g (2 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 2-4 Tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you want them)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 420 ml (1 + ¾ cups) unsweetened non-dairy milk (I use soy)
  • 2 tsp cider or white wine vinegar
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) sunflower oil (or another neutral oil)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the plain flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

  2. In a jug whisk together the milk, vinegar, aquafaba (if using), oil and vanilla extract.

  3. Gradually whisk the wet ingredients into the dry to make a smooth batter and let it rest while you heat up your waffle iron.

  4. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray or brush with oil and ladle in some batter (the amount you need will vary depending on your waffle machine). Cook until golden brown. Again, the time they take to cook will vary so just keep an eye on them.

  5. Serve with your choice of toppings.

Recipe Notes

  • If possible I recommend making the version WITH aquafaba as they have a better texture.
  • The oil is necessary for crispy waffles and also helps to prevent them from sticking to the waffle maker, don’t omit it!
  • To make savoury waffles simply omit the sugar and vanilla. You can add other herbs and seasonings as you like.
  • Waffles are prone to sticking so make sure you oil your waffle maker well. As all models vary, do follow the manufacturers instructions for cooking the waffles.
  • When the waffles are cooking, don’t open the waffle maker until they are ready! The best way to tell when they are done is when steam stops coming out of the waffle iron.
  • When you open the waffle maker do it slowly to allow them time to release.
  • To keep the waffles crisp while you cook more, place them on a baking tray in a low oven until you are ready to serve them.
