  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Melt 5 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat; remove from burner and set aside.
  2. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a very large skillet over medium heat; add pears and cook, turning occasionally, until mostly tender, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle sugar over pears and cook until browned and tender, about 3 minutes. Cover skillet and keep warm over low heat.
  3. Combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, and salt in a large bowl; make a well in the center. Mix melted butter, eggs, molasses, buttermilk, and milk in a separate bowl. Pour butter mixture into the well of the flour mixture and stir just until batter is moistened and slightly lumpy.
  4. Preheat and grease a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Pour batter into preheated waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions; repeat with remaining batter. Serve each waffle with pears and 1 tablespoon vanilla yogurt.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Bosc pears can also be used in place of the Bartlett, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Thinned it down a little with more milk. I also didn't cook as long as regular BELGIAN waffle. Everyone loved them!
