Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles

So what's on the menu at the Farm?

Well since fall has finally arrived I couldn't wait to make a favorite of mine...Sweet Potato -Pecan Waffles can you think of a better way to start your weekend? These cook up moist and flavoriful, and they are packed with healthy goodness! Pair these with Sorghum Syrup for a real taste of the South.

Sweet Potato-Pecan Waffles


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 C light brown sugar

1 TB baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 salt

1/2 C mashed sweet potatoes-roast sweet potatoes until soft, peel and mash

1 1/2 Cups Milk

4 TB Butter melted (1/2 stick)

3 large eggs, seperated, at room temperature

1/3 c finely chopped pecans


Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions. Lightly oil the grids.

Meanwhile, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl to combine, and make a well in the center. Whisk the milk, sweet potatoes, melted butter and egg yolks in a medium bowl until well combined and pour into the well. Whisk until just smooth; do not over mix.

Beat the whites in a medium bowl just until stiff peaks form. Stir one-fourth of the whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest. Fold in the pecans.

Spoon about 1/4 cup of the batter into the center of each quadrant of the waffle iron and close the iron. Cook until the waffle is golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Serve the waffles hot, with the syrup passed on the side.

P.S. And can I just say 'wow' at the idea of sweet potato and pecan waffles? How much more autumnal can you get? These might be my breakfast of choice this weekend!
