Light, fluffy and delicious, these Spiced Pear Waffles are easy to make and are freezer friendly too!
Total Time:10 minutes
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2 cup buttermilk
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 pears peeled, cored and finely chopped
In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, baking powder and brown sugar.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and mix in the wet ingredients until just combined.
Fold in the diced pears.
Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray (top and bottom plates). Spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the waffle maker (generally about ½ cup per waffle) and close the top.
Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions, or until the waffles are as crisp as you like them. I usually turn to the medium setting on my waffle maker, but all appliances will cook at different rates. So please follow your manufacturer’s instructions.
Repeat with remaining batter and don’t forget to spray the waffle iron top and bottom plates with every set.
Top with whipped cream, real maple syrup or caramel sauce and fresh diced pears.
