Tuesday Tutorial {recipe}: Pumpkin Spice Waffles!

So the other night I had a hankering (yep, I said it) for something fallish for dinner.  Since the cupboard was getting pretty bare, the  best option for dinner was breakfast.  Waffles were sounding yummy but first I wanted to make sure the hubby was OK with pumpkin waffles.

Here is how the conversation went:

Me: “If I said pumpkin spice waffles, what would your reaction be?”

Hubby: “With maple bacon?”

Me: “Maple sausage and regular bacon.”

Hubby: “Sounds good”

 

So off I went in search of a Pinterest recipe for Pumpkin Spice waffles.  I soon realized that I either didn’t have some necessary ingredients OR the recipes were just pumpkin with no spice :(  But instead of getting defeated, I just decided to take one that was the closest to the ingredients I had on hand and “tweak” it a bit.

Here is what I came up with!

Pumpkin Spice Waffles 

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/3 cups of pancake mix
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs

Mix the wet ingredients together.  In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.  I put about 3/4 of a cup of the batter in my waffle iron for each waffle and total ended up with about 7 waffles.  My boys gobbled them up and my hubby said the spices were just right: not too strong but enough to taste.  I will definitely be making these a bunch more this fall!

More waffles please!
