Butter Pecan Waffles or Something like that

Cracker Barrel, in my opinion, has some of the best pancakes. They are light and fluffy like great pancakes should be. On our trip last week they had a special butter pecan pancakes. There signature pancakes with this amazing sweet and salty sauce. I instantly fell in love. Since I live in NY and the nearest Cracker Barrel is 50 minutes away at least I needed to recreate this deliciousness in my own kitchen.

Buttermilk Waffles with Pecans

2 cups All-purpose Flour

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

1/3 cup melted butter

2 large eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans

As always mix dry ingredients and then wet…

I used my waffle maker. Spray with non-stick spray, so waffles come out easy. Makes 10 waffles, or 5 servings.

Salted Maple Butter Syrup

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup Maple Syrup

2 tablespoons sugar

2/3 teaspoon sea salt

1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)

And the finished product! The perfect salty, sweet breakfast. A new twist on an old favorite.
