This is where I share my kitchen mishaps and successes as I love through food. I hope you find something here that inspires you to do the same and  I'd love to hear about yours.

Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles

Waffles are my favorite, second to crepes. Pancakes I can leave any day - they leave me feeling heavy and bloated and the taste isn't worth all that. But one or two of these pumpkin waffles...oh man!! Enough of this - get to making them so you can eat.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (I did not pack this down)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (I used kosher salt)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice (I make my own blend because I have all the components)
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup plain pumpkin puree

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl, then just mix in the dry ingredients (you don't want to overmix, otherwise the waffles become tougher/more dense. If you have dense people in your life, you know you don't need dense waffles. Use your waffle-maker as directed by the manufacturer.

You can drizzle maple syrup and a little more cinnamon - or add a small mound of whipped cream to it (after a bunch makes it into your mouth).

*I froze the extras in baggies for breakfasts during the week. 

**I also made a double batch of dry ingredients to have on-hand for another day. I was going to mail a jar to my dear friend, Hasti Kashfia of I am Blessed Boutique, but gluten is her kryptonite. Now I have to make a non-gluten version...this gluten stuff is killing me now.
