Maple-Nut Pie Wafflewich Recipe
2 tablespoons (30 ml) water
2 tablespoons (28 g) non-dairy butter
1/3 cup (73 g) packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Pinch of ﬁne sea salt
1 cup (100 g) pecan or (120 g) walnut pieces
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup (235 ml) soymilk
1 tablespoon (15 ml) apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons (45 ml) canola oil
¼ cup (55 g) packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons maple extract
½ teaspoon ﬁne sea salt
1½ cups (180 g) whole wheat pastry ﬂour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
non-stick cooking spray
1TO MAKE THE FILLING: Combine the water, butter, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted.
2Remove from the heat, add the pecans, and stir for about 1 minute (the mixture will continue cooking from the residual heat). Add the vanilla, stir to combine, and set aside until ready to use. The mixture will thicken a little as it cools.
3TO MAKE THE WAFFLES: Combine the milk and vinegar in a large bowl: the mixture will curdle and become like butter milk. Stir in the oil, sugar, maple extract, and salt. Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda and stir until smooth, being careful not to overmix.
4Cook the waffles according to the waffle iron instructions using non-stick cooking spray. You should get 2 Belgian-size waffles, or 4 standard-size waffles. (For extra crispness, toast the waffles in a toaster oven before assembling and eating.)
5To serve, break the waffles into quarters. Add 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup (34 to 68 g) of filling on top of one quarter, then top with another quarter. Serve warm.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
