Recently, I binge-watched Parks and Recreation from start to finish. Believe it or not, I had never seen an episode before, and quickly became obsessed. One of the ongoing gags in the series, is Leslie Nope’s love of waffles, which made me desperately crave some as well! I ordered a waffle maker for my kitchen, and set out to create an egg-free recipe that is both crisp and fluffy, like the Belgian waffles I remember.
The recipe is very basic, and you likely have all the ingredients in your pantry already. They can easily be made vegan by substituting the milk with a non-dairy substitute. They can be dressed up with berries, maple syrup, fresh whipped cream, or even ice cream like my oldest daughter has suggested!
Makes approximately 5 large waffles
Perfect, Eggless Waffles
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1tsp baking soda
- 4 tsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk + 2 tbsp vinegar (can use dairy substitute + vinegar)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 tbsp melted coconut oil or other mild tasting oil (melted butter works too!)
Turn on your waffle maker and allow to preheat. Spray with non-stick spray or coat with oil.
Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl. If you do not have buttermilk, measure out your milk or dairy substitute and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice, and set aside for a few moments.
Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly.
Ladle your batter into your heated waffle maker and cook until you reach your desired consistency. For soft and fluffy waffles, cook a short while (approximately 5 mins on most machines), and for a crunchy exterior, cook longer (approximately 8 mins on most machines).
Top with your favourite toppings, and enjoy!
Please let me know if you take the time to try the recipe out, and be sure to comment with your favourite way to style your waffles! Will be posting my chocolate waffle recipe soon. Thanks for dropping in!
