No kidding, these Vegan Buttermilk Waffles are a fantastic non-dairy breakfast comfort food. This vegan recipe makes having the rich taste and texture of buttermilk waffles possible again.
Let’s be honest. There are a million vegan waffle recipes out there. Why is it important to try and duplicate the buttermilk waffles? What is so special about them that they need their own special vegan waffle recipe? I’m glad you asked! The secret to buttermilk being used in things like pancakes, biscuits and waffles lies in it’s chemical structure.
Buttermilk is fermented milk. So it is thicker, it’s acidic. The chemical reaction between the acidic nature of buttermilk with other ingredients in the recipe is what keeps it from getting too heavy. It’s how you get those light fluffy pancakes, biscuits and waffles that seem to light to even sit on your plate! This recipe duplicates that without any dairy involved!
If you were raised on buttermilk baked foods then you will recognize this vegan recipe to be just as good as the ones you used to eat as a child. With an extra crisp, these waffles topped with toasted pecans and maple syrup will make you fall in love with waffles all over again. The are so incredibly light and fluffy it’s like eating sweet, rich, fluffy waffle clouds in heaven! This is a vegan food you could get addicted to.
