These pecan waffles are delicious with butter and maple syrup. A great breakfast for any time of the year.

We didn't have pecan halves, so we 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pecan halves, or pecan pieces

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat electric waffle iron.

  2. Combine the eggs, milk, and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat until well mixed and smooth.

  3. Beat in flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add more milk, if necessary to make a batter that will spread easily.

  4. 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.

  5. Serve pecan waffles with maple syrup, fruit, or your favorite toppings.


  • For fluffier waffles, beat the egg whites separately and fold them into the batter just before cooking. 

Recipe Variations

  • 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.
