This a simple, but feel-good recipe from the V is for Vegan cookbook and makes for the quintessential weekend breakfast. Shave extra zest over the top of the waffles, top with whipped cream, and sprinkle on even more fresh berries for an added pop.
What you need:
For the waffles:
Vegan butter, for greasing
¼ cup sugar
1½ teaspoon baking powder
1¾ cups flour
1 cup vegan milk
⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
For the blueberry sauce:
1⅛ cups blueberries
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup, plus extra to serve
Zest and juice of 1 orange
What you do:
- For the waffles, in a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Set aside.
- For the blueberry sauce, into a medium saucepan over medium heat, add all ingredients and stir until blueberries just start to break down. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a greased and pre-heated waffle iron, add just enough batter to fill waffle maker sections, spread evenly, and close lid. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a heatproof plate, cover with foil, and keep warm in oven on lowest setting.
- Repeat with remaining batter and serve waffles hot with blueberry sauce and maple syrup.
