Pecans and chocolate chips make an outstanding combination, so it's a good thing this recipe makes a big batch for the hungry waffle eaters at your house.
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
tablespoon baking powder
cup finely chopped pecans
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
cup butter, melted
cups maple-flavored syrup
Additional coarsely chopped pecans and miniature semisweet chocolate chips, if desired
Heat waffle maker. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar, pecans and chocolate chips. In medium bowl, beat eggs, butter, milk and vanilla with wire whisk. Pour over dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.
Spoon batter onto waffle maker, following manufacturer’s directions for recommended amount. Close lid of waffle maker. Bake until steaming stops and waffles are deep golden brown. Serve with syrup. Top with additional pecans and chocolate chips.
These waffles can be baked in a regular or Belgian waffle maker. The yield will vary.
For even more chocolate and nut flavor, spread the baked waffles with purchased hazelnut spread with cocoa, found near the peanut butter in grocery stores.
