Breakfast: Waffles

The lovely boyfriend (who is Belgian, so it’s only right that he make Belgian food) made me these on Saturday morning. First time he tried making them vegan, and they turned out beautifully!

I don’t have a recipe for this (family secret, obv), but I can give you the rough estimate of what goes in them, curtesy of the internet. Oh, and this only works if you have a waffle maker:

To make 5ish waffles

250g plain flour

pinch of salt

pinch of baking powder

a bit of vanilla extract

50g sugar

500 ml hazelnut milk

to substitute 1 egg: 1 tablespoon flax seed meal mixed with two tablespoons water

30 ml vegetable oil

Mix all of the things together until you get a smooth, not too runny dough mix. Don’t overmix, because the waffles won’t be as fluffy. Put 3/4 of a cup of mix in a waffle iron and cook for 3-4mins until the waffles are golden brown on the outside.
