Pumpkin Waffles

   Sometimes I just don't feel like making a big supper, ya know? So when I have those days I usually have a bowl of cereal and make Brandon waffles or pancakes. When I suggested making him pumpkin waffles one night this week, his eyes lit up. I found the recipe here, halved it, and left what I didn't have out.

Pumpkin Waffles

1 1/4cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 stick melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat a waffle iron. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cloves in a large bowl and set aside.

  • Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin purée, sugar, butter, and vanilla in another large bowl until smooth. While whisking, add the flour mixture and blend until smooth.

  • Generously coat the waffle iron with vegetable oil and cook the batter in the waffle iron as recommended in the manufacturer's instructions. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Try them!
