  • 2dl (0.8cup) Dairy Free Cooking Cream or Non Dairy Milk

Savoury Toppings: Vegan Sour Cream, Salt, Pepper, Red Onion, Chives, Dill and Seaweed Caviar.

(Waffle iron to cook your waffles in)

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. While whisking add the liquids. (the melted margarine must have cooled down before adding to the batter) Keep on stirring while adding to avoid the batter getting lumps.
  2. Leave the batter to "swell" for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Whip your vegan whip cream with the sugars or if you are making savoury waffles mix your sour cream with salt, pepper, chives and dill.
  4. Now that your waffle batter has rested, cook them in your hot waffle iron.
  5. Eat the waffles warm straight out of the waffle iron.
