Notes About Spiced Pumpkin Waffles:
- This simple pumpkin waffle batter can even be prepared the night before and put in the refrigerator until ready to cook up the next morning.
- Be sure to use canned pumpkin puree, not canned pumpkin pie mix. Do yourself a favor and double or triple the batch.
- Barbara cooks up the extra batter in the waffle iron, and keeps the cooked waffles in the refrigerator to eat throughout the week.
- Just wrap the cold waffle in a wet paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds, or be like us and eat them cold, or even smeared with peanut butter.
How to Make Spiced Pumpkin Waffles:
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, maple syrup, pumpkin, milk and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just mixed. Bake in a preheated waffle iron.
