Buttermilk Pecan Waffles

I don’t think it gets much better than a yummy waffle with a big cup of coffee on the weekends. Sunday brunch is such a ritual in this house and I love it. Sunday is the one day that neither of us has to work so we take full advantage of that. It is well documented that I seriously love my waffle iron! I even used it to make the most incredible breakfast quesadillas, but I digress. This weekend I put it to work again making gorgeous, fluffy buttermilk pecan waffles.

The batter for the buttermilk pecan waffles came together really quickly and easily. All I had to do was pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk them together. It became such a thick, glorious batter! The final touch was folding in chopped pecans so that the waffles would have great texture.
Then it was time for my beloved waffle iron to work its magic. The buttermilk pecan waffles took about 5 minutes to cook to perfection in my particular model. They became fluffy, golden and so gorgeous! I was so excited.
Instead of maple syrup, I decided to make an easy and amazing cinnamon honey butter. I just had to stir the three ingredients together thoroughly to make it! Let me tell you, it was the perfect topping for the buttermilk pecan waffles.

Oh my goodness, these babies really made my morning. The cinnamon and brown sugar gave so much warmth and spice to the waffles, while the pecans gave fantastic crunch. Then the cinnamon honey butter just brought them over the top. Hope you all enjoy this wonderful and simple breakfast treat! xoxo

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 stick butter melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 stick butter softened to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  1. First, make the simple batter. Whisk the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl to aerate them. Whisk the melted and cooled butter, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla together in another bowl until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk it all together until it is a thick, smooth batter. Switch to a rubber spatula and gently fold in the chopped pecans.
  2. Pre-heat the waffle iron and be sure to consult the instruction manual for best results. Scoop 1/4 of the batter into the hot iron to just cover the surface. Close the iron and cook the batter for 4-5 minutes. It should puff up and become completely golden. While it cooks, make the cinnamon honey butter. Stir the soft butter, honey and cinnamon together thoroughly. When the waffle is done, serve it immediately with a dollop of the cinnamon honey butter on top. Repeat the process to make three more waffles and enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious!!! I really love cinnamon, butter and honey, so making something out of the three must be heavenly. Really love the way you write as well 🙂 Will be sure to follow up on your posts. xx

  2. This sounds amazing! I love pecan pancakes, so definitely want to give these a try! 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    One of our daughters just loves waffles and of course we love pecans so it would only be natural to try this. We also have another daughter who is gluten intolerant. I wonder how they would taste if we swapped out the all-purpose flour for pecan meal/flour? Either way, this is just a bunch of goodness. Although honey, butter, and cinnamon combined is a good topper, maple syrup is really good with pecans! Just say’n.
