Orange Pecan Waffles are Belgian waffles flavored with orange juice, orange zest, and pecans. Breakfast was never so much fun.
Many food traditions in our family have originated from camping with close friends. For example, we always reward ourselves with homemade ice cream after setting up camp.
Traditionally, we would prepare my friend Joan’s Orange Pecan Waffles for breakfast at least one morning.
About the Non-Electric Waffle Iron
Part of the fun was making them with Joan’s Belgian waffle iron seen below. Instead of using electricity, heat it directly over a burner or campfire.
These are not fussy waffles. No separating eggs or folding in the whites.
Joan assembled the dry ingredients at home. She combined them with the liquids right before cooking them at camp.
I bought a manual waffle iron for myself but don’t use it much. It requires constant attention–something I can only manage when I’m away from home. As you can guess, I used an electric waffle iron to make the waffles pictured here.
This recipe produces thick Belgian waffles with a rather dense, muffin-like texture. In fact, leftovers make great snacks later in the day.
