Ronda from~ The Family Table, brings us "Pecan Waffles"!

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d share a delicious Pecan Waffle recipe that is sure to make the occasion special. Collin and I made these this morning for the in-laws and they came together pretty quick. Served with a nice melon and a press pot of coffee, your special guest will feel showered with appreciation.

Pecan Waffles
adapted from Food Network Magazine
Serves 4
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
2 T unsalted butter, melted
1/4 non-hydrogenated shortening, melted
Pure maple syrup for topping
Pre-heat waffle iron. Place chopped pecans on a piece of foil and pop in the toaster oven on the toast setting. Toast for about 2 minutes, making sure they don’t burn. In a big bowl, whisk flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. In a measuring cup, add milks, egg, vanilla. Pour melted butter and shortening onto dry ingredients. Add additional wet ingredient and mix until just combined. The batter will be lumpy. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray and add batter. Top generously with pecans.  Cook until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter. Top waffles with butter and maple syrup. (These are thin waffles)

*A quick note about the shortening....There are few things that I make with shortening. When I do use it, I always use the non-hydrogenated kind from Whole Foods. I haven’t made these with all butter, however if you are opposed to the shortening, then I am sure all butter would work fine.
I wish all of you SkyMoms a wonderful Mother’s Day!!
