Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecan
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Cranberry Syrup:
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups apple juice
  • 1 1/2 cup thawed cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind

Method

Cranberry Syrup: In saucepan, heat sugar with apple juice over medium heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves; bring to boil. Add cranberries and orange rind; return to boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, syrupy and cranberries pop, about 25 minutes. Keep warm. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat to serve.)

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, butter and vanilla; pour over dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in pecans.

Heat waffle iron. For each waffle, brush iron lightly with some of the oil; pour in 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter, spreading to edges.

Close lid and cook for about 6 minutes or until crisp, golden and steam stops. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month. Reheat in toaster.) Serve with Cranberry Syrup.
