Toasted Pecan Waffles with
Chunky Apricot Maple Syrup

Summer Fruits: a Country Garden Cookbook icon
Edon Waycott, 1995, Collins Publishers, San Francisco


"These waffles have a substantial texture but are light in weight. Their nutty
flavor and interior crunch are a perfect match for the syrup, which combines
the faint tartness of apricots with the fragrant hominess of maple syrup. The
syrup, which keeps refrigerated for 2 weeks, is also delicious over ice cream.
You can substitute peaches for some or all of the apricots, but squeeze in a
little lemon juice to offset the sweetness."

Chunky Apricot Maple Syrup:
10 apricots
1 cup pure maple syrup
1 high-quality, moist, supple vanilla bean *

Toasted Pecan Waffles:
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornmeal, preferably white
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

* Note: High-quality vanilla beans are supple and moist, not dried out like
most of those you find in supermarkets. Look for moist vanilla beans in
specialty markets. Store them tightly wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator
for up to 6 months.

To make the syrup, pit 6 of the apricots and purée them in a food pro-
cessor blender. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the maple
syrup to a simmer and stir in the purée. Slit the vanilla bean lengthwise
and scrape the seeds into the syrup mixture. Cut the pod into thirds and
add to the syrup. Continue to simmer for 10 minutes, or until the syrup
thickens slightly.
Just before serving, remove the bean pod. Pit and thinly slice the re-
maining apricots and add to the mixture. The syrup will thicken a little
if allowed to cool to room temperature before serving. Makes 2 cups.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and preheat a waffle iron.
Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for
10 minutes. Set them aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cooled pecans, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, buttermilk and butter
and stir until the batter is smooth. Pour approximately 3/4 cup of batter
onto the waffle iron and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve hot with the syrup. Makes six 8-inch waffles.


 Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes with
Sweet Cherries in Pomegranate Syrup

Summer Fruits: a Country Garden Cookbook icon
Edon Waycott, 1995, Collins Publishers, San Francisco


"These pancakes are soft and light without added egg whites, but if they
are a little too lofty for you, thin the batter with a tablespoon or two of
milk. I buy pomegranate juice from a wonderful lady at my local farmers’
market who makes it with her apple press, but you can also find it bottled
in Middle Eastern markets. Warmed slightly, the sauce is delicious over
ice cream or French toast."

Sweet Cherries in Pomegranate Syrup:
4 cups pomegranate juice
1 cinnamon stick, approximately 3 inches in length
1/2 pound dark sweet cherries, pitted
1/2 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in
2 tablespoons cold water

Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes:
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 large egg
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Unsalted butter, for greasing

To make the syrup, in a shallow pan over high heat, combine the pome- granate juice and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Continue cooking
over high heat for approximately 30 minutes, or until the mixture is
reduced by half.
Remove the cinnamon stick and add the cherries, brown sugar, vanilla,
lemon juice and dissolved cornstarch. Return the mixture to a boil and
continue to cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until the cherries look glazed
and the syrup is thickened. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly
before serving. The syrup can be stored covered in the refrigerator for
1 week. Makes approximately 4 cups of syrup.
To make the pancakes, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together
the yogurt, egg and butter. In a small bowl, stir together the flours, salt
and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the yogurt mixture all at
once and stir just until moistened; the batter will be lumpy.
Preheat the oven to the warm setting or 200 degrees F. Preheat a griddle
or a large skillet over moderately high heat. Lightly film the surface with
butter and pour out approximately 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook
until bubbles break on the surface, then turn over and cook briefly on the
other side. Keep the pancakes warm in the oven until all the batter is used.
Serve with the warm Pomegranate Syrup. Makes eight 4-inch pancakes.
