Chelsea Waffle with Cashew Cream

I’ve never made a waffle in my life. Breakfast is my favorite meal, and I’ve made pancakes many times (I’m not very good at it), but never waffles. Considering how much I enjoy pancakes, and how rarely I make them due to the hassle and my lackluster flapjack flipping skills, it finally hit me that a waffle maker might just solve this dilemma.

I picked up this Proctor Silex Morning Baker Belgian waffle maker on Amazon. $26. Cheap. Good reviews. Sounds good to me!

LOVE it. Love it love it love it. The thing is foolproof. Perfect waffles on my first try, and virtually no clean-up. Now, THAT’S my kind of appliance!

My inaugural waffle recipe came from – guess who – my favorite vegan chef, Isa Chandra Moskowitz. I used the Old Fashioned Chelsea Waffles recipe from Vegan Brunch, with whole wheat flour and maple syrup instead of barley malt syrup.

Topped with Sweet Cashew Cream (also from Vegan Brunch) – oh, the joy of that sweet scent of vanilla wafting around these waffles….

The recipes were a win. The waffle maker was a win. I’ve got so much winning going on – just call me Charlie Sheen! Or not. That man has a few issues.
