I've tried for years to duplicate a delicious waffle I sampled at a restaurant here in the South. This crisp and nutty version is what I came up with. Butter and maple syrup are my family's favorite toppings. —Susan Jansen, Smyrna, Georgia

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Maple syrup


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Combine egg yolks, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into batter.
