Pecan Waffles Recipe

My absolute favorite breakfast when I was small was pecan waffles.  We would go to the local restaurant and I would order the specialty and they would bring me pecan syrup or strawberry syrup, but I wanted hot maple syrup. So you can interchange the syrup or the ingredients to suit your taste.  You can also use this same recipe for pancakes.

Pecan Waffles

  • 2 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of pecans
  • Hot maple syrup
  1. In a large mixing bowl put the flour, eggs, milk, baking powder, salt, oil, sugar and vanilla extract. With an electric mixer, blend slightly leaving in a few lumps.
  2. You can add more milk if necessary to get the right consistency.  Add in 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and pulse lightly.
  3. Spray the waffle iron with non stick spray or brush lightly with oil. When the waffle iron is hot, place the waffle mixture in each square and cook until golden brown.
  4. Remove the waffles and serve with hot maple syrup, butter and chopped pecans on top.
