Do I have a simple and easy breakfast vegan waffle recipe you can make at home in 1 bowl in 20mins? Yes, I do! This recipe is simple and easy to make, yet so soft and fluffy.
This recipe makes about 8 to 10 small waffles. If you are looking for an easy recipe, this one is for you!
I don’t know about other countries, but in Japan, you can find them in a packet in shops, buy one and tear the packet and eat straight from it. They are coated in sugar to make them extra delicious and taste simple and quite handy when it comes to having them as a snack. Simplicity is the best way to express them in Japan I guess.
Although I cannot have them now as these contain dairy and eggs, I used to love eating them. So I thought I would make it vegan and as simple and easy to make at home!
How simple is this recipe?
So as my first published waffle recipe, I wanted to make something super simple and easy to make, like the ones I used to love. This recipe uses these basic ingredients: flour, sugar, vegan butter and soy milk. And some little extra ingredients like salt and vanilla extract. That’s it!
Most of the ingredients are already in your cupboard and it takes one bowl to whip up, is ready in just 20mins. How simple and quick is that! And most important, it’s delicious.
Which waffle maker do you use?
I used this Yabano Waffle Maker. This was a gift and I’ve used this for the past 2 years with many successes! It can make 2 waffles at a time, is super easy to use as well as easy to clean afterwards.
It also comes with a hot sandwich plate and grill plate, so very versatile, 3 in 1! Woohoo. My kitchen is not big but this one is quite slim so it doesn’t take up too much space which I also love about.
Can I use oil like coconut oil instead of vegan butter?
For a short answer, yes you can! However, I prefer to use vegan butter as it gives the buttery taste and flavour that the ones I used to eat have. Some recipes call for vegetable oil such as canola oil and it will totally work too.
The flavour will be quite blunt as it would just be flour, sugar and refined oil, so if you are using vegetable oil I recommend you to dress them up with some flavourful toppings like maple syrup or molasses, for instance.
Can I store them in the freezer?
Absolutely! In fact, I encourage you to store them in the freezer. Why? Freezing them makes a super quick and delicious breakfast whenever you fancy waffles!
Put them in an airtight container, store in the freezer and when you want a quick and delicious breakfast, pop one or two in the toaster and voila! Breakfast is served.
They will maintain the texture and the flavour for up to 2-3 months:)
What is the best way to eat them?
If you are like me who loves the simple taste of waffles, you can coat both sides them lightly in sugar and eat them as a snack or take them with you to school, work or really anywhere.
If you have more time and fancy a bit nicer ones over the weekend, dress them with your choice of sweeteners like maple syrup, molasses, etc. and some fresh fruits, nuts and seeds.
In the pictures, I dressed mine with my melty delicious vegan caramel sauce and some blueberries, bananas and walnuts. The choice is limitless!
