These waffles make me smile. Not only are they a regular on my breakfast menu, but they also make it to my lunch and dinner menu regularly. Pure maple syrup and fresh fruit or berries elevate these waffles to another level of yumminess.
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups nondairy milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup organic applesauce
1/3 cup melted vegan butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
nonstick cooking spray
Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the milk, water, applesauce, melted butter, and vanilla until well incorporated. Don't over-mix; the batter should be slightly lumpy. Set it aside, and preheat your waffle iron.
Spray the preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Add about 1/2 cup of the batter or the amount suggested by the manufacturer. Use a rubber spatula, spread the mixture to 1/4-inch of the edge, and close the lid. Cook the waffle according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Serve with fresh fruit or berries and warm maple syrup. For added sweetness, dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
This recipe makes about eight medium-sized waffles.
If you need a waffle maker, check out one of my favorites. The Waring Pro Double Belgian-Waffle Maker. It is quite possibly a perfect waffle maker in the history of waffle makers!
