Looking for an easy dessert for the Christmas table? If you have a waffle iron in your cupboard, here's a super easy vegan pastry that can be made in no time.

These waffles taste all the wonderful Christmas spices: cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and orange peel. A fair amount of spices are added to the dough to give the waffles the right flavor and Christmas atmosphere. (If you just want a little touch of Christmas atmosphere, halve the amount of these spices in the dough.)

Let's also mention that we are now making real delicious waffles - they don't skimp on cream and oil. Vegan waffle batter is often made with low-fat vegetable milk, and oil is almost completely omitted. When eggs are also left out of the dough, the waffles will inevitably turn out well dry. It's just awful! Like eating cardboard.

With this recipe, you make sure that the waffles turn out soft and juicy, but on the surface crispy.

Equipment needed

For this recipe you will need:

  • waffle iron
  • baking bowl
  • whisk
  • a large ladle for dispensing the dough
  • measuring cups and spoons (precise measuring is required)

Why should you put mineral water in the waffle batter?

You should always put mineral water in the waffle batter, because it gives the waffles more crispness and airiness. Use unflavored and salt-free mineral water, or unflavored sparkling water.

What should you grease the waffle iron with?

To make the surface of the waffle crispy and so that it comes off the iron easily, you should grease the surfaces of the waffle iron with vegan margarine or rapeseed oil before baking each new waffle.

The easiest way to lubricate both surfaces is to use canola oil sold in a spray bottle. You can find this at the grocery store by name baking spray.

Making waffles

This waffle batter is really easy to make: measure all the other ingredients except flour and mineral water into a large baking bowl. Mix with a whisk until smooth, but do not overbeat.

Add the wheat flour and mix the dough again until smooth, but do not beat too much.

Finally, add just enough mineral water to give the dough a suitable consistency. The dough must not be too loose. If necessary, you can sprinkle a little more flour into the mix. On the other hand, the dough must not be too thick either, so that the waffles do not become too dense.

If you are unsure about the composition of the dough, make a test fry! That is, take a scoop of dough and bake one waffle. If the finished waffle is too dense, add mineral water. If it is too loose and does not hold together, add a little flour.

In any case, the waffle batter should be thicker than the pancake batter.

This kind of dough composition worked well for me

Heat up the waffle iron and lubricate the iron surfaces. Then pour the batter onto the iron with a large ladle, close the lid and bake the waffle for a couple of minutes until the waffle is crispy and golden brown.

Do not peek inside the iron during baking! Especially at the beginning of baking, you should not open the iron under any circumstances, or the waffle will easily tear. In the final stage, opening the lid doesn't hurt so much anymore.

Remove the waffle from the iron and put it on a plate to cool. Bake the rest of the waffles in the same way.

Serve and enjoy! Waffles are at their crispiest when freshly baked.

What to put on the waffle

These Christmas waffles are tasty just as they are, but if you want to improve the taste even more, serve one of the following with the waffles:

  • powdered sugar
  • whipped cream
  • maple syrup

I wouldn't recommend serving these waffles with jam, but this is also a matter of taste... My children ate these with strawberry jam and they said it was good?
