Crumble the brown sugar to remove all lumps and place in a medium mixing bowl with the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Combine the milk, oil and eggs; stir until blended and smooth. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour 2 cups of batter along the center of the lower grid; spread batter using a heatproof spatula to within 1⁄2 inch of the edge of the grid. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
