Well if you have ever been on a real road trip, I’m sure you have seen the black letters in yellow blocks that spell out “WAFFLE HOUSE”. Take it from me, it is worth the stop. With the right prices and quick service, your experience at the Waffle House is sure to be enjoyable. In the meantime, here is a reproduction of their famous pecan waffle recipe compliments of Food Network Magazine. I didn’t have pecans so I left them out.
3/4 cups toasted pecans, 1 1/2 cups 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 extract, 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted and cooled), 1/4 cup vegetable shortening (melted and cooled)
Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl. Do not mix in pecans just yet. Whisk together wet ingredients in a bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined. Batter will still be lumpy. Do not over mix. Preheat waffle iron and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp pecans. Cook until golden brown. Top your waffle with maple syrup and enjoy. They are so delicious you don’t even need butter on top!
