Easy, Basic Waffles in the Morning

What you need: 

1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
berries, to taste, optional
chocolate chips, to taste, optional
1 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
1/2 cup applesauce

What you do: 

1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with berries or chocolate chips, if using. Mix the wet ingredients in a different bowl. Combine and mix until just mixed up.
2. Preheat waffle iron and spray with some nonstick oil (or wipe down with some oil). That's important cause they stuck like mad to the iron when we made them.
3. Cook according to the waffle maker's instructions, which usually means putting about 1/4 cup batter on the iron, closing, and waiting for a light to go out.
Source of recipe: My gf and I wanted some waffles but most of the vegan recipes we found were not "basic" enough and had all sorts of ingredients we didn't have on hand. We modified a recipe and here it is.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made these exactly as the recipe instructed and added chocolate chips.  I am sorry they stuck to the waffle iron, but the flavor was yummy!  Maybe I'll add a little oil to the mix next time.  I sprayed my waffle iron, but I guess that wasn't enough.  I'm not really a pro with the waffle iron either, so there may be some user error!

i made these this morning and they turned out as the best waffles i have ever had.  I mixed in pecans and decided to splurge and eat them with a little bit of real maple syrup.  I think the maple pecan flavors were what made them so spectacular, but regardless this is a great solid waffle recipe!

Absolutely perfect! THE NON-STICK SPRAY IS A MUST!! If the world were perfect, I would subsist off of these alone.

Great texture and flavor! I will add a tbs or two of oil next time cause they kept sticking to the iron.  >:( I used oat flour and  and added a tbs of vinegar to a half cup of milk and used water for the other half of milk. Oh - and instead of using 2 tsp baking powder, I used 1 tsp  of baking powder and one tsp of baking soda because I had added the vinegar. I love how simple this recipe is  and will be making it again - just gonna add some oil next time.  ;)

I loved this!!! I've made it like 4 or 5 times now. It's my own personal way of proving that vegan waffles are better :)

I just made these this morning, and as usual, perfection. Didn't stick, made the perfect amount (I doubled the recipe), wonderful as always. Try adding a T of oil to the batter, this combined w/ a bit of spray on the waffle iron is the perfect anti-stick combo. Oh, and I add a teas. of vanilla extract, and a half teas. of almond extract. Yummers!! :)>>>

And I leave out the cinnamon, for some reason it makes the waffles (and my kitchen) smell really funny. IMO, they're just fine w/out it.

I made half the waffle recipe to make one Belgian waffle.  I reduced the baking powder by half and added two teaspoons of oil to the batter.  These were pretty good!  I like that there's no added sweetener (I used unsweetened applesauce), too.  I gotta say though, I like the waffle recipes in Vegan with a Vengeance and Veganomicon better, but this is a nice one if you want a basic waffle.

These tasted okay, but the inside of the waffle never cooked. I was letting them sit until the outsides were much browner than I usually like them, but the waffles remained gooey on the inside. I liked the taste--not as sweet as the waffles my sister makes--but it would have been nice if they were firmer. I followed the directions exactly on this go-round, but maybe next time I'll add a little bit less liquid?

I doubled the recipe (except the baking powder as I'm convinced I can always taste it) and it only made 5 waffles. I don't know if I have a jumbo waffle iron or something?

Also; laurabs: pancake batter is usually runnier.
