If you love pumpkin..these waffles are a must on your menu! It was such special treat making these for my family this week…the children ate them up and Julia even licked her plate, bless her heart. I loved the smell of my home making them while listening to the sounds of my children getting ready for school on this “Indian Summer” morning. I saved the batter for the next day and they were even better. Some of you saw my ” Kitchen Blooper” on Facebook…and as you can guess, my morning had a little hiccup…haha. But, the hiccup was worth the blessing. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26.
Before preparing turn on your waffle iron so it is hot before you pour your on your batter
Have your flour, brown sugar, canned pumpkin, milk, eggs, salt, butter, baking soda and pumpkin spice mix (you can buy already spiced pumpkin-it is very good too)
Then add your liquid ingredients..pumpkin, eggs, butter, milk
Make sure your iron is very hot, spray with Pam and ladle about 1/4 cup of your batter onto the iron. I would rather you have too little than too much so try not to over pour-you will have soft waffles.
I soooo wish you could smell the aroma these waffles made while cooking..steam was coming out of the iron..Ahhhh…Top with warm maple syrup, butter, spiced whipped cream and nuts of your liking. Enjoy this special breakfast. Remember, these waffles can be frozen and easily thawed -you can also save batter for the next morning for fresh waffles.
Making whipped cream! 1 pint of whipping cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice and of course a mixer!
pour the entire pint of whipping cream in a mixing bowl
and pumpkin spices
Now add “air” to it by beating on high speed with your mixer. I am not one for name brands, but I have to tell ya that Kitchen Aid makes a slamming hand held mixer.
After you have gotten a dense consistency you may add your sugar
Beat in to the whipped cream – just waiting for a finger dive!
2 ½ cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp salt
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups milk
¼ cup melted butter
Spiced Whipped Cream
1 pint whipping cream
¼ cup sugar
1 Tbsp pumpkin spice
Preheat waffle iron.
Make your whipped cream first by beating just the whipping cream until stiffens. Beat in ¼ cup of sugar and 1 Tbsp of pumpkin spice at very end. Store in refrigerator.
To make waffles add all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, spice, salt, brown sugar) and mix. Then, add your wet ingredients (pumpkin, milk, eggs, butter). Mix well.
Spray waffle iron well with “Pam” and add about ¼ cup of batter. Close down lid and let steam/cook until crisp. Serve off the iron with warm maple syrup, butter, spiced whipped cream and nuts if desired.
* Tip – Add spiced whipped cream to your coffee to replace your typical cream, it is delicious!
