      Wow! Best waffle recipe ever. I'm a huge fan of Waffle House Pecan Waffles. I've never been able to make anything at home that came close to theirs. This one tastes just like Waffle House. Another reviewer suggested adding malt to the recipe. I added 1/4 cup Carnation Original Malted Milk powder to the egg & sugar mixture. That puts it over the top. This will be the ONLY waffle recipe we ever use from now on. Thanks for sharing!

      These waffles were fantastic. They were very light and fluffy. After reading the reviews I tried a combination of all of the suggestions. Many said the waffles were too sweet, and eavey mentioned adding malt, so I simply replaced the 1/2 c sugar with 1/2 c malt and that really did the trick. Thank you eavey for the malt idea. I think that just really gave these waffles the taste they needed. I did need to use more than 1/2 c batter. I actually needed more like 1 c batter. Maybe my waffle iron is larger or maybe it was the change I made. ?????

      I made this this morning and thou I have never ate at a Waffle House I loved them. I did not have Buttermilk so I use 1/4 cup more half and half in its place. I like the amount that it makes for I can freeze some for later. I love the fact that you don't have to beat egg whites for like 5 minutes and then fold them in later. I will be using this one again.
