I posted an image of these vanilla buckwheat waffles on Instagram a little while ago, and now many people have been asking me for the recipe. Problem though!! I just threw a whole heap of ingredients together on the day and hoped for the best. The waffles turned out to be a winner!! (yay) but I hadn’t documented the recipe! (sigh). Lucky for us all (including me) I’ve been busy testing, and I think I now have it!! ☺
This recipe produces waffles that are deliciously fluffy on the inside, and a little crispy on the outside. The perfect kind of waffle if you ask me.
Feel free to top the waffles with anything you like; maple and blueberries, poached pears with salted caramel, freshly grated apple with cinnamon… the options are endless! Back then I used lemon curd and natural yoghurt (as I had the ingredients left over from a Christmas meringue). You could make your own lemon curd or purchase some from the local shops. If you’re purchasing, try to choose a homemade lemon curd with the same ingredients as if you were to make it yourself, with no unnatural nasties.
I hope you enjoy the recipe, and if you post an image on social media be sure to tag me @gatherandfeast! I’d love to see your creations!
- 2 cups buckwheat flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- 3 tbs coconut sugar
- 2 cups almond milk
- 3 eggs, separated
- 2 tbs coconut oil, melted
- Lemon curd
- Natural yoghurt (unsweetened)
- Pure maple syrup
- Fresh berries (I used blueberries, raspberries & blackberries)
- Fresh mint
- Place the buckwheat flour, baking soda, sea salt, vanilla powder and coconut sugar into a large mixing bowl.
- Then add the almond milk, coconut oil and egg yolks and gently stir to combine.
- In a medium bowl whisk the eggwhites until stiff and then fold into the mixture.
- Place your waffle pan onto the stove to heat up. Once hot lightly spray with oil.
- Place the mixture into the waffle pan. The amount will vary depending on the size of your waffle pan. My pan takes about ¼ cup each side of the pan.
- Cook for about 2 minutes on high heat, then turn the waffle pan over and cook for a further few minutes.
- Remove the cooked waffles from the pan then repeat with the remaining mixture.
- To serve, place the waffles onto a plate, add a generous dollop of natural yogurt, lemon curd, a glug of pure maple, and sprinkle with berries and fresh mint. Enjoy!!
