Pumpkin Waffles

I got this yummy recipe from my MOPS newsletter this month. 
 I just knew I had to try it and we're all so glad I did!  

Pumpkin Waffles
serves 6
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2-1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk (i used 1%)
  • 1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
  • 1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
  • 3/4 stick (6 Tbsp) butter, melted

Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.  Pre-heat waffle iron.  Shift together: flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt & spices.  Whisk eggs in a separate bowl until blended and then whisk in milk, buttermilk, pumpkin and butter until smooth.  Whisk in dry ingredients just until smooth.
Brush waffle iron with melted butter.  Spoon mixture into iron and cook according to manufacturer's directions.  Transfer cooked waffles into oven 
to keep warm and crisp.  Transfer to a large platter and serve with butter and warm maple syrup.  
Makes about 12
