Vegan Mofo #16: White Chocolate, Raspberry Waffles


What’s your favourite late summer food?

I don’t know if it’s specifically late summer, but one of the best things I like about summer is that it’s the reason of berries! I’m not dead keen on a lot of fruit, it’s tasty and I’ll eat it but I don’t go out of my way to eat it. Except when it comes to berries, I love them!

I thought this was the perfect opportunity to pair up one of my favourite food combinations, waffle style. Raspberries and White Chocolate.

White Chocolate, Raspberry Waffles
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • splash of vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
  • extras: soya cream, more white choc chips, more berries, icing sugar and raspberry sorbet
  1. Heat up the waffle iron. Mix the vinegar and soy milk in a jug and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  3. Add the curdled soy milk, oil and vanilla to the mixture and stir to combine. Fold in the raspberries and white choc chips.
  4. Spoon 1/3 cup of the mixture into the iron each time and cook according to your machines instructions.
  5. While the waffles are cooking, melt some white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Once it has melted down, add 1/4 cup soy cream and stir through until smooth.
  6. If you fancy whipping up a quick raspberry coulis type thing, put some frozen raspberries in a pan with a splash of water and a few tbsp of icing sugar. Heat up and stir until all the sugar has melted.
  7. To serve, top a waffle with some raspberry coulis and then place another waffle on top. Scoop some raspberry sorbet on top and then smother in the white chocolate cream. Drizzle a little extra coulis on top
Makes 6 waffles
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeaaahhhh. I love this combo. You didn’t really get a lot of the white chocolate taste from the waffles themselves so it’s definitely worth making the white chocolate cream. It. Is. So. Good.
This has definitely been one of my favourite waffles yet. I am so making this again. My partner was really happy with these, apparently they remind him of the white chocolate raspberry cookies he has to heat up at work that he can’t eat because they’re not vegan, so was pretty pleased I could replicate that tastiness for him in waffle form.
