    ellie_'s Note:

    All thoughts of calories must be set aside while you plunge into these interesting special-day waffles. Orange Nut Waffles with Orange Syrup were originally printed in Bon Appetit (December 1981). I haven't tried these waffles yet but am planning on trying this very soon. When I make them I will be omitting the liquor in the syrup, replacing with juice.

      My new waffle iron arrived today, so naturally I had to try it out immediately! I didn't feel like the Orange Syrup, so I didn't make it...I didn't have the nuts, so that was skipped, too...I added 1 tsp. of orange extract to increase the orange factor, but the orange flavor was barely noticeable...I used a half cup measure of batter for each waffle (for a 6 inch round Belgian) which yielded 5 waffles...UPDATE: I've since re-tried the recipe...In my second attempt I did as before (read above), except I tripled the amount of orange zest and this time achieved the orange flavour level I'd hoped for...Thank you for posting this recipe!

      What wonderful waffles, big, thick, light, very flavourful and easy to make. The syrup is great and compliments the waffles beautifully. I substituted Grand Marnia and Malibu Rum for the dark rum and Caruaco, it was what I had on hand, because they are sweet I decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup. Thanks for sharing this treat Ellie. I'll be making these again.
