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. 

What You'll Need

  • 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

How 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.
  1. 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.
