A little nutmeg in the batter heightens the sweet potato flavor, and finely chopped pecans give an interesting crunch. These wonderful waffles will warm you up on a cold morning.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 cup canned sweet potato puree
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups cake flour

- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 3 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
