If you love waffles like I do, you will find any excuse to tweak your regular recipe and this one may just be your perfect start to a Happy Thanksgiving weekend.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp ground ginger
- 3/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 3/4 cup cooked pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 2 - 3 apples, cored and sliced thinly ( I use Gala with peel on)
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Cook apples with butter, sugar and cinnamon on low/medium heat, stirring often, for about 5 - 10 minutes, until tender. Keep warm on low heat.
- In the meantime, preheat waffle iron.
- Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl.
- Add buttermilk, pumpkin and eggs
- Beat with hand mixer until well blended. Let batter sit for one or two minutes.
- Scoop up (without stirring batter) about 3/4 cup batter and spread on hot waffle iron, leaving room to spread. (amount may vary depending on what kind of waffle iron is used)
- Cook each waffle until waffle iron shows done. Carefully lift lid and remove waffles to rack in warm (200 F) oven until ready to serve.
- Serve with apples and a drizzle of maple syrup. Yields 5-6 round waffles
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 - 3 medium bananas
Melt butter in saucepan, add sugar stirring until melted.
Stir in sour cream and cook one minute.
Stir in sliced bananas and serve.
Note about oiling waffle irons: I've heard it said that you train your waffle iron in regard to oiling it. I don't normally oil mine as I don't wipe the inside after I use it. So do whatever you usually do.
