Pecan Waffles

What you need: 

3 1/2 tablespoons golden flax seed finely ground
12 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups plain soy milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 1/2 cups unbleached self-rising flour
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

What you do: 

Beat finely ground flax seed with water until it forms a beaten egg consistancy. Mix vinegar into soy milk and let sit a couple of minutes. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time to the flax seed mixture, alternating with 1/2 cup of the curdled soy milk, until all are incorporated. Mix in maple syrup and canola oil, then add pecans.
Ladle onto hot waffle maker and cook until steam slows.

I wanted these to be good, but unfortunately, they weren't.  Followed recipe exactly and waffles were wrecked.  I added 1/2 cup flour and that helped, but they look gummy, pale, and tasted bleh.  I suspect there is something with adding the flour in progressively and batter becoming overmixed.  Never got a crispy waffle out of the entire batter.  If anyone is able to figure this out - please let me know.


So I have no idea what happened but these waffles turned out horriable. I didnt have self rising flour, but I used 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt for each cup to compensate, so that shouldnt have been a problem. I feel like maybe there was too much oil. I used the Ener-g egg replacer like the previous reviewer said and left the waffles on for a good ten minutes but they still werent cooked on the inside..and leaving them on longer didnt help, they just turned into a glob of mushy waffle, that wouldnt come off my iron even with oil brushed on. I also ended up adding more maple syrup, some vanilla and brown sugar because I felt that the batter really tasted bland. I really wish these had turned out better.


This recipe is fool-proof!  These waffles can be whipped up in notime.  I use the same amount of Ener-G egg replacer to substitute for the flax seed.  I can even add blueberries or vegan chocolate chips in place of the pecans for a different flavor.  The waffles are crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside--definitely a new favorite that I make whenever I get a craving for waffles ;D.
