    Pumpkin Waffles

    Hubby is the breakfast guy in our house. He makes amazing pancakes, omelets & eggs, egg bakes (strata), country breakfast skillets, and definitely waffles! He is so good at listening to the kids when they request something special for breakfast and making it happen in seriously delicious ways.

    Homemade Pumpkin Waffles

    Maple Whipped Cream

    On top of the waffles, I added a little maple whipped cream and a few coarsely chopped pecans.

    To make Maple Whipped Cream:

    I whipped 1 cup of heavy cream then added approximately a teaspoon of maple syrup and stirred by hand.

    It ends up being a very loose Maple Whipped Cream but perfect for these spiced pumpkin waffles. Finish it up with another drizzle of syrup and you have a decadent (but easy!) breakfast!


    How to Make Pumpkin Waffles

    Pumpkin Waffles with Molasses

    I listed molasses in the recipe and that is definitely our favorite way to eat these pumpkin waffles! If I happen to run out of my favorite molasses, I have substituted maple syrup. When using maple syrup I will add more, about 1/4 cup.

    Make sure you cook these waffles until they are crispy on the outside. That will ensure the center is cooked through.

    Can you Freeze Pumpkin Waffles?

    We triple this recipe often and then freeze the leftovers. To do that I just let the waffles come to room temp. and then place in a large sealable plastic bag and pop in the freezer. When ready to eat just place in toaster. Easy peasy!
