Waffles are my perfect breakfast. As much as I love pancakes I don't like standing by the stove while the whole family devours their pancakes, only to run off having finished when I finally get to sit down! Waffles on the other hand can be cooked four at a time (depending on your waffle iron of course), which suits us much better.
How are waffles made?
A traditional waffle batter is much like a thick pancake batter - made with eggs, flour and milk.
Vegan waffles are made without eggs and with dairy free milk instead of cows' milk.
Over the last few months I have tried many vegan waffle recipes - with varied results. Some were just plain soggy (apple cinnamon waffles I'm looking at you), others left an unpleasant taste of raising agent in the mouth and others still were delicious.
But these I think are my favourite waffles that I've made so far.
They're made using half a tin of pumpkin purée - an ingredient that's more common in the US and Canada than it is here in the UK. However, it's easy enough to buy from Ocado, Wholefoods Market or even Amazon* if you can't find it near you.
Cook them for longer to get a crispy outside
The real key to getting these vegan pumpkin waffles right is to make sure you cook them for long enough that the outside goes really crispy.
If you need to reheat them stick them in the toaster for a few seconds.
What to serve with pumpkin waffles
These are delicious on their own but I particularly like them with raspberries, coconut yoghurt and maple syrup.
They are also AMAZING with my vegan salted caramel sauce.
