Breakfast for Mom – Orange Pecan Waffles

Orange Pecan Waffles

If you want to show some love for Mom on Mother’s Day- why not start her day off with a wonderful breakfast?

These orange- pecan waffles are sure to make her smile. They are really tasty. They aren’t hard to make, either.

 

You can serve them just on their own, or perhaps with a side of crispy bacon or some breakfast sausage and some fresh fruit.

 

 

I started with my basic vanilla waffle recipe and had some fun with it. I really enjoyed the combination of pecans with orange juice. Serve them with warm maple syrup.

Here is the recipe.

Orange Pecan Waffles

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 t. orange zest
2 eggs
1 cup orange juice
½ c. milk
½ c. melted butter
1 T. vanilla
¾ c. toasted pecans, chopped*

Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside. Beat together remaining ingredients and add to dry ingredients mixing until smooth. Cook in a waffle iron until crisp.

* To toast the pecans, place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes. Toast them before you chop them- smaller pieces can burn easily.
