Copycat Pecan Waffles
This is a copycat recipe for the Waffle House Restaurant’s famous pecan waffles. Delicious!
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted lightly
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, melted and cooled
Whisk first five ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk egg, milk, buttermilk and vanilla in a separate bowl until combined. Stir the egg mixture, melted butter and shortening into the dry ingredients until just combined. (The batter may be lumpy.)
Preheat waffle iron and brush with melted butter, if needed. Ladle approximately 1/2 cup batter onto waffle iron. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons pecans on waffle; close lid and cook until golden brown.
Note: To toast pecans, spread on a baking sheet and bake 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, until lightly toasted. Or you can put them in a non-stick skillet on low heat until lightly toasted. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. They are usually ready when you begin to smell them.
