These pecan waffles are delicious with butter and maple syrup. A great breakfast for any time of the year.
I didn't have pecan halves, so I used chopped pecans in the waffles pictured. The waffle iron toasts the pecans as the waffles cook.
- 2 Eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar

- Pecan halves, or pecan pieces
- Preheat electric waffle iron.
- Combine the eggs, milk, and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat until well mixed and smooth.
- Beat in flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add more milk, if necessary to make a batter that will spread easily.
- Following the instructions that came with your waffle maker, add the batter and spread it out; sprinkle with the pecan halves or pecan pieces, Cook the waffles until golden brown.
- Serve pecan waffles with maple syrup, fruit, or your favorite toppings.
Tips and Variations
- For fluffier waffles, beat the egg whites separately and fold them into the batter just before cooking.
- Vanilla Pecan Waffles: Add about 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the batter for some extra flavor.
- Cinnamon Pecan Waffles: 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for spiced pecan waffles.
- Lemon Pecan Waffles: Add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract and the finely grated zest of 1 lemon to the batter.
- Walnut Waffles: Replace the pecans with walnuts.
- Banana Pecan Waffles - Add 1 chopped banana to the waffle batter.
