I’ve been a big fan of waffles since I was 14 and working in an ice cream parlour. One of the items on the menu was waffles topped with ice cream.
The batter was pre-made so all I had to do when I received an order was to pour out the batter into the waffle maker and then leave it for a set amount of time, then put it on a plate, top it with soft serve and take it to the customer along with a choice of syrups.
This was my first introduction to the magic of waffles!
As you may already know, I have a serious sweet tooth, so the ice cream parlour job was my favorite of all the jobs I had as a teenager. I also worked in a video store (also fun but it wasn’t ice cream) and as a cashier in a supermarket (least fun).
Sadly, even though it was my fave job, I only worked in the ice cream parlour for a few months. When their busy season was over I was one of the kids they didn’t keep on. The fact that I made quite a few mistakes (that I could then eat in the back) might have had something to do with it.
I was also excessively generous on the portion sizes. What can I say? Not much has changed in that respect!
These vegan waffles are just as delicious as those ice cream parlour waffles back in the day! And they’re divine served with vegan whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, syrup, fresh fruit or whatever you fancy.
We went with vegan whipped cream, blueberries, sliced strawberries and maple syrup. It was seriously good.
This is a classic vegan waffles recipe, it’s not flavored any particular way, but the result is vegan waffles that are golden brown, crispy on the outside and beautifully soft on the inside.
These waffles were golden brown in 5 minutes, but we did splash out and get a rather lovely waffle machine! I think a less powerful model might require a little more time, but waffles are one of those things that you generally have to check on as they cook anyway.
I think you will love this classic vegan waffles recipe. The waffles are:
- Crispy on the outside
- Soft on the inside
- Delicious with vegan cream or ice cream
- Ideal drizzled with syrup
- Dessert and breakfast in one!
Serve them hot and crispy for the most delicious results.

- Put your waffle machine on to preheat.
- Sift the flour into a bowl and add the baking powder, salt and sugar. Then add the soy milk or other non-dairy milk, coconut oil and vanilla and whisk with a hand whisk to remove any lumps. The batter will be quite thin.
- When your waffle maker is heated, pour out the batter (use as much as recommended according to the waffle maker manufacturer instructions) and close the machine.
- Allow to cook for 5-7 minutes until golden and crispy.
- Serve with whipped coconut cream or vegan ice cream, fresh fruit and maple syrup.
