Butter Pecan Waffles with Spiced Bourbon Whipped Cream

The first bite sent me over the edge, and before I knew it I wolfed this baby down in less than five minutes with zero shame. These are incredible, and I’m not even kidding…

Butter Pecan Waffles with Spiced Bourbon Whipped Cream

This is by far my favorite waffle recipe — ever. They’re a lot less fussy than the yeast waffles I made with my fried chicken a while back, so you absolutely have to make these. They’re too easy not to make, and too damn delicious not to eat. Your significant other will thank you in so many wonderful ways lol ;)

The texture of the waffle itself is glorious — moist, fluffy, crisp and tender, all while being light and almost kinda custardy…almost. They’re absolutely delicious soaked with the buttery maple syrup and toasted pecans and the spiced bourbon whipped cream. Heaven in your mouth, indeed. Don’t take my word for it, just make this immediately and thank me later.

I actually didn’t add the pecans to my waffle batter, instead I sprinkled them on top later — however, if you want to add them to the batter please do. They’ll be delicious! I just didn’t have enough on hand to put them in the batter, in the syrup and then garnish on top later lol. I know, I know. You can use a regular waffle iron, I used a belgian iron — it’s the only one I have lol. These will make about 4 to 6 belgian waffles, but if you’re using a regular waffle iron, you may get more out of this recipe. You can halve it to make less.

Total time
 
adapted from Babble
Serves: 4 belgian sized waffles
Ingredients
For the waffles:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
For the Butter Pecan Maple Syrup:
  • 1 cup real maple syrup (grade A)
  • 1 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped toasted pecans
For the Spiced Bourbon Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tsp bourbon
  • dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
Instructions
For the waffles:
  1. In a blender, beat the eggs, milk, vanilla and oil until frothy.
  2. In a large bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together until well mixed. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, pour the wet mixture into the well, then stir just until the mix is moistened. Avoid over-mixing. Gently fold in the chopped pecans.
  3. Spray your waffle iron with nonstick spray, and spoon batter onto a hot waffle maker and cook until golden brown.
  4. Serve with a pat of butter, the butter pecan maple syrup and the spiced bourbon whipped cream.
For the Butter Pecan Maple Syrup:
  1. In a small saucepan over medium high heat, bring all ingredients, except the pecans, to a steady simmer then reduce the heat to medium low and allow to cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the toasted pecans at the end. Remove from heat and serve on top of your waffles.
For the Bourbon whipped cream:
  1. In a stand mixer, or with an electric hand-mixer, combine the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla, and bourbon in a bowl except the cinnamon and nutmeg and whip until soft peaks form, about 3 to 5 minutes. Don't over-mix or it'll turn into butter.
  2. Once it's ready, sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon and nutmeg and stir by hand to incorporate. Serve on top of your waffles.
  3. This can be made a day or two in advance.

    I have been waiting for another waffle recipe. I love pancakes but prefer nice deeply pocketed waffles. I will be pinning this recipe to use at a later date.

    This is the best waffle recipe ever! I’ve made them 4 times. They’re incredibly delicious and so easy to make.

      I’m finally gtteing around to writing my response about these. It was a perfect comfort breakfast fluffy and eggy they way I like them. And I’ve had them many times since then. Even my husband who avoides my special’ foods like the pleague likes them. I use half the amount of sweetener I tried it with none, but it didn’t brown right. Last week I added coco powder and chocolate chips. Thanks again!
