Wild Rice Pecan Waffles Recipe
My mother found this recipe and shared it with me. It has become a favorite of my family's - especially when the waffles are served with my dad's homemade maple syrup.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, separated
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1-1/2 cups cooked wild rice
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks, milk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Fold in the rice and pecans.
- 2. Bake in a preheated greased waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Yield: 5-6 waffles (about 6-1/2 inches).
