Cranberry Orange Waffles

(6 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup evaporated milk or 3/4 cup regular milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
We liked these waffles. They were lightly crisp cooked on a setting of 4 out of 6. The orange flavor was noticeable and nice, but it could have been stronger. I might increase the orange zest to 2 teaspoons next time. The amount of nuts and cranberries seemed just right. I used chopped walnuts for my nut selection. I pulsed them with the cranberries in the food processor so they'd distribute more evenly in the batter. When it came to evaporated milk versus regular milk, I opted for plain old 2% milk. All in all, these were very satisfying waffles that I would make again. (This recipe was submitted in 2009. It was tested and photographed in March 2016.)

Serve these warm with softened butter and warm maple syrup... or for a big orange experience try topping with orange marmalade and whipped cream.
