What a disappointment. Another snowy day here in beautiful sloppy Vermont. I guess we will not be collecting sap today , but it’s a good morning to treat my guests to waffles,so into the kitchen to get some yummy breakfast smells happening.

Golden Pecan Waffles with Bananas & Clove Maple Syrup
waffles1 cup white flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbs.brown sugar
1/4 Tsp. baking powder
1/4 Tsp. baking soda
dash of salt
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
6 Tbs. butter melted & cooled
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, toasted

1.) In a large mixing bowl, stir together flours, sugar, baking powder & soda & salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs & buttermilk
2.) Make a well in the dry ingredients & add wet, mixing gently. Add melted butter then chopped toasted nuts.
3.) Drop by large tablespoons onto a heated waffle maker. Close cover & cook approximately 3 minutes, longer if you like it crispy.

Cove Maple syrup
1 cup syrup
8 cloves
Heat in a small saucepan 7 let sit 15 minutes or so so clove hints the syrup.
Strain the cloves out before serving.
To serve, pile 3 waffles with butter & sliced bananas & top with warm syrup.
Makes 12 waffle squares.
To serve a crowd, I make them up ahead & keep warm in an oven set at 300.
I place the waffles in 1 layer on a cake drying rack set atop a sheet pan. This keep them crispy rather than floppy when you set them atop of one another in the oven.
