Introducing: Wally the Waffle Iron!
I mentioned earlier in the week that I have never been so lucky as to enjoy home-made waffles anywhere but in diners or breakfast joints. They aren’t my #1 breakfast food, but they sure are a delicious treat that I’ve wanted to try veganized. So last week I bought Wally, the Waffle Iron. I couldn’t wait for “Sunday Breakfast” and started on it today. I followed Isa’s Recipe on PPK, however subbed the lemon juice with 1 tsp. vanilla extract. I also added 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar to the soy milk and let it sit a minute before adding it to the wet ingredients, to thicken it up a little. The soy yogurt I used was vanilla flavor.
I had to “prep” the waffle iron, so the first pancake was a little greasy.
I then got a little creative, and decided to powder the waffles.
And caramelize bananas & strawberries. Best decision yet!
The caramelized fruit totally stole the show, turning the waffle more into the vessel for sugary fruit consumption. However, I did manage a few bites sans fruity delight and the waffle was pretty damn good. It does have a grainier aspect to it, due to the cornmeal, however this recipe fluffed right up and maintains a thick consistency, with no holes or breaks in the waffle (which I hear can be a bit of an issue with vegan waffles).
D is eating these right now, sans fruit because I ate it all, but with powdery goodness and maple syrup. They’re actually reheated because he woke up late and he says they are really good. Hip hip hooray! Off to a day full of hanging curtains and World Cup. Happy Saturday!!
