Let’s take it all the way back to last summer, when it was balmy outside and walking around without a coat was the norm (it always seems so distant when it’s the winter!). In Milwaukee, we are notorious for having a festival every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor, whether it be a huge music festival or a festival to celebrate all the different cultures that collide here, we’ve got it all! One of the most fun festivals we have here is the Bastille Days, (more…)

I never ever thought I would say this, but these vegan and gluten free peach waffles are BETTER than my original favorite waffle recipe. No joke, I was on struggle street with gluten free baking for a while. Outside of baking out of Ashley’s doughnut cookbook, I haven’t really touched on gluten free baking much. Partly because it scares me and partly because I don’t always want to have to buy ALL the (more…)

Lemon Curd and Raspberry Almond Waffles

Lemon Curd and Raspberry Almond Waffles

Remember that homemade vegan lemon curd we made last week? As much as I loved eating it on toast and straight off the spoon, I was ready to turn it into something else, like waffles! I’ve been stuck in a breakfast rut lately (granola and toast, everyday for the past week), so upping my breakfast game with waffles seemed like a perfect solution.  Add sliced almonds for crunch and pretty raspberries for a little more sweetness and I think I’ve found the ideal summertime waffle.

Lemon Curd and Raspberry Almond Waffles

Honestly, I didn’t think a waffle iron was necessary for the longest time. Aren’t waffles just like pancakes, but with nooks and crannies? NOPE. They are so much better.  All those pockets and crannies are perfect places to hold a smear of salty butter or a little pool of real deal maple syrup (my family buys ours by the giant gallons in Northern WI, since we go through it like crazy), something pancakes just can’t compete with. So, if you are a doubter and think a waffle iron isn’t totally necessary to add to your kitchen tools, just back that thought up and get yourself an iron. You won’t regret it.

In the words of the honorable Leslie Knope ‘We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work.’ Enjoy your Tuesday friends!

Vegan Carrot Cake Waffles with Cream Cheese Frosting

Vegan Carrot Cake Waffles with Cream Cheese Frosting

Hi friends! It’s Friday and my brain is just kind of over this week, so let’s talk in bullet points and and discuss these crazy waffles, ok?

– First off, waffles! I went without a waffle maker for a little while and I’m glad I made the leap back into the waffle world. I based this recipe off of my favorite, fool proof waffle recipe and kind of just tinkered with it until I got a carrot cake waffle. The cream cheese frosting isn’t necessary, but it is, if you know what I mean. I thought about making just straight carrot cake, but after taking to Twitter and discovering that people just want breakfast cake in waffle form, waffles won out. I used pecans in this recipe, even thought I think walnuts are typically the nut of choice for carrot cake. I loved the flavors that pecans added to the already sweet and crispy waffles, so I’m sticking to the pecans from here on out. Also, if you want to know where to get lots of nuts for cheap, Amazon has become my new favorite grocery store.

– Speaking of waffles, for my faux Bachlorette party (I don’t want to wear a crown and drink through an inappropriate straw, no thank you!) we are having a waffle bar, YES! A few of my best out of town friends are flying in and spending a weekend full of eating, beer tasting and mimosa making. Since these carrot cake waffles are my new favorite I think they are for SURE in the rotation now. One of my good friends is gluten free, so does anyone have a bomb gluten free waffle recipe they have tried and loved? Suggestions appreciated!

– Continuing on with wedding things, I met with a florist last night and she told me that people have done some crazy wedding things. Like aerial dancers and bouncy castles at their weddings. I mean, no one would walk away from a bouncy castle wedding saying, ‘Man, that bouncy castle was the worst and not fun’, right? I kind of wish our venue could fit one now.

– Switching gears: I listen to podcasts to and from work and it makes the drive a little less frustrating and kind of prevents road rage from boiling over. My favorites right now are Listen Money Matters, Rich RollSmart Passive Income,and Chopped. Chopped is created by fellow food blogger, Marly and has already had some awesome guests on her show. If you want more podcast recommendations, my girl Sarah has a super comprehensive list that I’ve gotten a lot of good recommendations from!

– I’ve been trying to think about harder baking projects to challenge my skills and kind of get me out of my usual baking box. On my list so far are croissants, macaroons, meringue, and brioche. These recipes would noramlly be pretty straightforward, but making them vegan is just a little it harder. Keep your eyes out for them! If you don’t see them, that means I’m drinking wine and getting frustrated with my 5th batch of croissant dough.

Have a happy Friday and a lovely Easter weekend! Also, treat everyone at your family gathering and make carrot cake waffles and they will totally forget about that giant chocolate bunny (it’s hollow, why is it always hollow?!) everyone got for Easter.

Vegan carrot cake waffles are the perfect Easter weekend or springtime breakfast treat! They are like breakfast cake, but in waffle form.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup pecans (chopped)
  • 2 carrots (grated)
  • For the cream cheese frosting:
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. To make the waffles: In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients, except for the pecans and grated carrot. Fold in the pecans and grated carrot, making sure everything has been whisked together and no streaks of flour remain. Spray your waffle iron with non stick spray and cook according to waffle iron instructions. I used about 3/4 cup batter per waffle. Mine took about 4 minutes in the iron, but yours may be different!
  2. To make the cream cheese frosting: Combine all ingredients together in a high powered blender or food processor fitted with a blade. Blend until smooth and creamy.
