Cran-Orange Waffles Recipe

“These fluffy waffles are a real breakfast treat,” writes Nancy Zimmerman of Cape May Court House, New Jersey. “You can also serve them for dessert with a scoop of frozen yogurt and the syrup drizzled over the top.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the egg, egg white, milk, orange juice, oil and orange peel; stir into dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in cranberries and pecans.
