  • waffle iron


Vegan Buttermilk

  • 1 and ½ cups / 375ml soy milk
  • 1 and ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups / 253g white spelt flour
  • ¼ cup / 35g corn starch
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Wet ingredients

  • ½ cup / 125ml pumpkin puree I use freshly made pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 95 degrees C or 200 degrees F if you are making a stack of waffles you need to keep warm.
  • Turn on your waffle maker.
  • Combine the dairy-free milk and apple cider vinegar in a jug or bowl and set aside.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • When the vegan buttermilk has thickened, whisk in the pumpkin puree, vanilla and olive oil.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until combined. Don't overmix, lumps are fine.
  • Spoon or pour ¼ to ⅓ cup of the batter in to the waffle iron (depending on the size of your iron) and close the lid. Cook the waffles until golden brown and crisp, around 5 minutes. Transfer the cooked waffles to a wire rack and pop them in the preheated oven as you cook the rest. Repeat to cook the remaining batter.
  • Serve with vegan ice-cream, maple syrup and crushed granola or fruit.


When cooked gently pass the waffle on its side from hand to hand (like a football) to release additional steam that may make your waffles soggy.
