Pumpkin-pecan waffles

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 \N Eggs, separated
1 tablespoon Fresh lemon juice
1¾ cup Milk
½ cup (1 stick) butter
½ cup Pumpkin puree, canned or homemade
2 cups Cake flour
1 tablespoon Plus
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Freshly grated nutmeg
¾ cup Chopped pecans

1. Preheat the waffle iron. Place the egg whites in food processor bowl fitted with steel blade (or use mixer). Process until frothy, then add the lemon juice through the feed tube and continue processing until soft peaks form. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the milk.

Microwave the butter at 100% (high) until melted, about 20 seconds, then pour it into the egg-milk mixture along with the pumpkin. Whisk together.

3. Sprinkle the cake flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg onto the egg-milk-pumpkin mixture and thoroughly whisk together. Fold in the beaten egg whites. Pour the batter onto the hot waffle iron just until it nearly reaches the edges. Sprinkle each waffle with 3 tablespoons of pecans. Bake each waffle until the light goes out. Don't peek.

4. Place 8 dessert plates in the oven to warm, and as the waffles are cooked, transfer them to the warm oven till ready to serve.

Recipe is from _Dessert in Half the Time_ by Linda West Eckhardt and Diane Collingwood Butts.
