Pecan Waffles With Peaches + Coconut Whipped Cream

My in-laws were in town this weekend, and this was a good excuse to finally purchase a waffle maker!  I have talked and dreamed for far too long about owning one.  It is small, simple, and fairly inexpensive, making it a kitchen item that seems somewhat justifiable, and completely necessary if you are a DeLaney.  However it has taken us three, and a half years to own one.  This must be a physical symbol of me feeling a little more settled, and a lot more content with where we are living.  It’s waffle love, but dare I say, Casper love?  Almost.

Christopher and his dad are waffle connoisseurs, and this weekend I may have just joined their club.  In honor of Georgia, where hubs is from, I thought pecans, peaches, and coconut whipped cream would make a lovely pair.  Comforting, delicious, and perfectly indulgent.  A keeper, and soon to be DeLaney weekend ritual.

Pecan Waffles

Makes 6

1 heaping cup pecans, ground

1 cup spelt flour

2 tbsp. packed brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 egg

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

2 tbsp. orange juice

1 cup whole milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 cup chopped pecans

Coconut Whipped Cream

1 can of full fat coconut milk (in a can)**

2 tbsp. powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Toppings

Peaches, thinly sliced

Maple syrup

1/4 cup chopped pecans

In a food processor grind heaping cup of pecans until it resembles flour.  In a large bowl mix together ground pecans, spelt flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and brown sugar.  In another bowl mix together egg, milk, melted butter, orange juice and vanilla.  Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk well.  Add in 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and mix together again.

Cook waffles as instructed by your waffle maker.  Keep waffles in an oven warmed to 200 degrees.  If you lay the waffles out flat, they will continue to get crispier,(which I love!) Once all waffles are made and staying warm, make your coconut whipped cream.

*Thai kitchen brand tends to be the best brand for making whipped cream.  If you have a choice, choose that brand.  You want to keep it in the fridge 24 hours before you want to make the whipped cream.  You are only going to use the solid fat from the can and discard the liquid.

Scoop out solid coconut cream and place in a large bowl.  Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat for 1 minute, but not longer or it will start to loose the texture of whipped cream.

Slice peaches and garnish your waffles with a few slices, along with whipped cream, chopped pecans, and maple syrup.
