Caramel Pecan Waffles

This is a story about lazy weekend breakfasts that also work for company or holidays. We think you will enjoy them.

Our youngest son, Ben, his wife, and their darling little 5-year-old daughter stayed with us while they were waiting for their house to close. That was an opportunity for Merri Ann, my wife, to make her favorite waffles.

When Merri Ann makes these waffles, she pours batter on the waffle iron, and before folding the top down, pours a layer of chopped pecans over the batter. Then she cooks them as normal. The heat of the griddle toasts the pecans.

The waffles come out nutty, crunchy and delightful. She serves them with whipped cream and buttermilk syrup. If you haven’t tried buttermilk syrup with its caramelly, butterscotchy flavor, it’s incredible!

Make your breakfasts even better!

  • Make your own buttermilk syrup!
  • You work hard. You deserve the best.
