Pumpkin Waffles


We all know what season it is, so there's literally no surprise that I am trying to incorporate pumpkin in just about every single baked recipe. There aren't many things more superior than a homemade breakfast, and homemade waffles rank pretty high in my book. I'll admit, I wasn't always a waffle person, I am a die hard french toast fan. When I wanted to branch out and try making my own waffle mix, I needed a waffle iron and fell in love with making them. There's something about pouring syrup into every single crevice of a waffle that makes eating one so satisfying. With the addition of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, these are truly a fall fan favorite (a little alliteration for my English and grammar friends) and I am here for the pumpkin.

Fun fact: waffles and pancakes are technically the same batter. There are slight differences when making the batter itself, but essentially waffle batter can be made for pancakes, and vice versa. Pancakes require a touch more oil and little more liquid. Waffle batter can be on the thicker, less oily side. If you want a super crisp waffle, let the waffle iron do its thing a little longer. Adding pumpkin to recipes does more than just change the color and add fall pazazz. It has ample amounts of Vitamin A and helps the body with building the immune system. Essentially pumpkin is magical and should be in rotation year round. Just sayin'

Making these pumpkin waffles takes very simple ingredients such as all purpose flour, oil, a little sugar, pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, eggs, and whole milk. In typical fashion, whisk together the dry ingredients and set it aside. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients and pour the dry into the wet; whisk until just incorporated but do NOT over mix!! Preheat and spray a waffle iron and ladle batter into the iron. Close the iron (or set the iron based on the waffle iron you have) and cook until desired crispness. Drizzle maple syrup over the top, or add a large dollop of whipped cream and have at it! Don't forget to share- or not.
