Pumpkin Pie Waffles
October 21, 2009
Ever since I can remember my two favorite ingredients have been cinnamon and pumpkin, so naturally pumpkin pie has always been a favorite (I have even been known to only scrape the pumpkin innards right off the crust, leaving a nice little empty pie crust). I also love love love waffles. I have them several times a week for breakfast and typically try to make them with my own whole wheat batter (sorry bisquick!) unless it’s a busy morning, in which case I’ll grab an ego (so blah).
SO you can bet that I was beyond excited to find the Pumpkin Pancake Recipe on Frugal Foodie’s blog (did I mention I’m IN LOVE with this blog?! I’m sure you can’t tell being that this is only the second day/blog in a row that I’ve made something using one of her recipes). For some reason my waffle-love does not carry over to pancakes so well…I mean, they’re okay, but I’ll always pick waffles in the end. So I decided to make them into Pumpkin Waffles!
They were super fluffy and sooo much more delicious then my plain ol’ whole wheat waffles. I had plenty of left over batter so I decided to make the whole batch and freeze ’em for the week to come – YAY FOR DELICIOUS BREAKFASTS! It’ll be great for thursdays when I have to be out the door by 7:30 am to make it to class on time.
My only change to her great recipe in the future? maybe a little more pumpkin and cinnamon (I have an addition, and will soon need to go to therapy for it – I swear!)
