I know I keep talking about fall, but y’all it’s just the best time of the year! I thought I would stick with the fall theme for my recipe this week because how many times a year can you really include pumpkin as an ingredient? I stumbled across this recipe when I was watching a mom cook with her kids on Youtube and it looked amazing. I thought this might be a recipe you want to make with your kids as well. They could dress up and you could have a Halloween dinner party. I know if I had kids that’s definitely what I would be doing.
Ingredients: 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, a pinch of salt, 2 eggs, ¼ cup of firmly packed brown sugar, 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree, 1 2/3 cup of milk, 4 tablespoons of butter melted and cooled, whip cream, and syrup.
Instructions: Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt in a bowl. Plug in your waffle iron and allow it to heat up. In a second bowl, add eggs, sugar, pumpkin, milk and melted/cooled butter and beat well. Gently fold in the flour mixture into your wet ingredients. Cook the waffles according to your waffle iron instructions. I usually scoop ¾ cup of the batter into my waffle iron for a nice fluffy waffle. Serve with your favorite syrup and a swirl of whip cream on top. You can even add a sprinkle of cinnamon, or for the kids you can add bright purple sprinkles! I hope you all have the best time making these waffles with your family.
