Pumpkin Waffles

We decided to have a special breakfast last Sunday so I whipped up some Pumpkin Waffles!  The recipe came from it also included Apple Cider Syrup, but since I was missing the key ingredient apple cider I opted not to make it this time, but I definitely do want to try it in the future.

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
In a separate bowl stir together
  • 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.
 Fill your waffle maker evenly using the ice cream-scooper.  We have discovered that with our waffle maker you need to fill the sections completely or they will not fill in later.

 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!

Missing Photos

I apologize for a lot of missing pictures, especially in older posts. I was using PhotoBucket to host my pictures, but they've changed their rules and no longer allow links to them.
I will be re-uploading the pictures, but it may take some time...
