Pumpkin Pie Waffles

November 5, 2012

Pumpkin fever has officially hit the May house.

Bam! Right in the face.

It happens every year. This year, however, I have all kinds of time to dream up pumpkin deliciousness. Soups, breads, you name it and I’m making it or thinking about it.

These waffles combine a couple of my favorite things—pumpkin pie and breakfast. Oh, and waffles. I would be completely satisfied being slapped in the face with these tasty breakfast treats.

The added depth from the pumpkin, a healthy sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice and a drizzle of maple syrup bring these waffles closer to pumpkin pie than seems acceptable for breakfast. If you happen to have a little whipped cream, I highly encourage a dollop of that, too.

Pumpkin Pie Waffles

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, oil and egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir up just moist.

Spoon batter onto a hot waffle iron (about 1/4 cup for each waffle). Cook 5-7 minutes or until the steaming stops, repeat with the remaining batter.
