As I was making the waffles an old Donald Duck cartoon came to mind. Make sure you learn from Donald's mistake and do not add rubber cement to your waffle mix!
Start by plugging in your waffle iron and preheating it so it is ready for you.
Stir together the following ingredients.
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 cups milk
- 4 egg yolks (save the whites for later)
Whip the 4 egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form.
Stir the flour mixture and 1/4 cup melted butter to the pumpkin mixture, stirring just to combine.
Use a whisk or rubber spatula to fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the batter, stirring gently until incorporated.
Fold in the remaining egg whites. Cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions.
They should be a nice golden brown.
I served our pumpkin waffles with a choice of maple syrup or apple butter topped with whipped cream. Both toppings were delicious on these waffles!
