Recipe of the Week


Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Yields: 8 Waffles

This interesting waffle recipe was created by two Creole women from New Orleans. These frugal women never let a single thing go to waste and often combined leftover fruit with syrups for waffle toppings. Their favorite flavor was a combination of canned cranberries and maple syrup.

1½ cups yellow cornmeal
½ cup chopped pecans
2¼ cups flour
½ cup sugar
3 tbsps baking powder
2¼ tsps salt
¼ pound melted butter
6 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
2 tbsps vegetable oil

Preheat waffle iron to medium heat according to manufacturer’s directions. In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a wooden spoon, blend well. Fold in pecans until thoroughly coated. In a separate bowl, combine butter, eggs and milk and whisk well. Using the wooden spoon, stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients until smooth. Place a small amount of vegetable oil or spray on preheated waffle iron. Ladle ¾ cup batter onto hot waffle iron and cook 3–3½ minutes. Remove and keep warm. Serve with cranberry syrup or your favorite fruit-syrup mixture.
