  • 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!
