Pumpkin Gingerbread Waffles

I woke up this morning, stepped on Jack the Labradork’s tail, walked out into the den and looked out onto the patio. Other than the massive pecan limb that fell in the backyard overnight, something was different. Leaves were falling and the light had noticeably changed. I grabbed a cup of coffee and while returning to the den unfortunately glanced in the mirror and jumped slightly at the wild hair and bags under my eyes — an obvious result of getting home late from a fantastic dinner party the night before. A slobbery warm lick on my knee brought my attention back to the backyard. After I patted the dork on his head, I opened the door and stood in complete and utter surprise — fall had finally come to Texas! Now, where the heck was that pumpkin puree?

I immediately ran to the kitchen, grabbed the pumpkin puree from the freezer and got to cookin’. All my banging away and the tell tell smells of breakfast woke my zombie family from their deep sleep and the kitchen was quickly filled with laughter, bacon, and waffles. You can’t get a better Sunday morning than that.

Autumn spices wrapped up in a blanket of pumpkin and gingerbread, these waffles are irresistibly addictive and perfect for any fall morning. Cheers!

    There is nothing like autumn in North Texas. Bet this recipe would also make great pancakes.

    I made them. I was worried that there was too much liquid, as other recipes don’t have this much pumpkin AND milk, but I liked the extra pumpkin & the low amount of sugar in your recipe so I went with if. They are a bit more like a waffle-shaped gingerbread quick bread than a light waffle, but very good. They need extra time in the waffle iron to bake. But I used 1 c. whole wheat & 1/2 cup gluten free (mostly rice) flour — what I had in hand — so that certainly effected the outcome.

    A keeper. Thanks for breakfast!
