Start your morning off right with a batch of these Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Waffles.
Raise your hand if you love breakfast? I really enjoying making breakfast for the family during the winter months. Our farm market is closed and we can enjoy time together on the weekends. It also gives me time to experiment with new recipes that I can share with all of you. My family is the honorary guinea pigs, I mean taste testers.
While Gabrielle was home for her college winter break last month, I wanted to make her a nice send-off breakfast that she would enjoy. College food gets a little old after all and there is nothing as good as a home-cooked meal. Gabby is my pumpkin-anything gal. She loves pumpkin so I make sure I always have canned pumpkin stocked in my pantry to last all year. That way, I can whip her up a pumpkin bread, muffins or dessert when the mood strikes. I’m a rebel (LOL) – I am not one to conform to the “pumpkin is only for fall recipes” camp. If we like it, we eat it when the mood strikes.
Waffles are really simple to make. This recipe is one of my easiest waffle recipes because it calls for baking mix as the base. I doctor the mix up with pumpkin, spices, and sugar. Another tip for making waffles is I like to brush my waffle iron with melted butter. You can use oil too but I like the rich buttery flavor is adds to the waffle.
When the waffles are finished cooking, I brush some more butter to each side and then dip them into a cinnamon sugar mixture. You can’t enjoy Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Waffles without a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating.
I’ll be honest, I never had pumpkin waffles before I started experimenting with this recipe. I was stoked at how good they were. TheseCinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Waffles have the perfect amount of pumpkin, spice and cinnamon sugar coating. Gabby really enjoyed them. Being the pumpkin aficionado that she is, if she liked them, then chances are you will too. Enjoy!
