Waffle House Pecan Waffles

Waffle House Pecan Waffles

Unfortunately, Waffle Houses are not close to everyone. If you have a hankering for their Pecan Waffles, you can make your own. These happen to be my favorite item on their menu. You may want to toast the pecans and cool them before adding them to the batter. That adds another dimension to these already-delicious waffles.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon corn oil
  • 1/2 cup Half-and-Half
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 egg, yolk and white separated


  1. Grease waffle iron liberally and heat.
  2. Combine all ingredients except egg. Mix well
  3. Beat egg yolk and pour into batter; mix in well.
  4. Beat egg white in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold beaten egg white into batter mixture. Do NOT over-mix. Small lumps won't matter.
  6. Pour 1/2 cup of batter into center of hot waffle iron and bake until steam stops coming from edges of iron (about 3-5 minutes).

Yield: 4 servings

Add milk or flour as necessary to get the proper batter consistency. It should be thick, but easy to pour (like a thick syrup or gravy). If too thin, add flour. It too thick, add milk. You may need more or less liquid than called for.
