Pumpkin Waffles!!!

Who doesn't love waffles or pancakes for breakfast? I am calling all you Pumpkin lovers. This is the best recipe for waffles I have ever found. And yes I am sharing it with you. This recipe also has no oil or butter in it either so it is really rather healthy for you. Or it just allows you to slather on more butter and use more syrup. Anyway, my family loves these!!

This is what the batter should look like!!

Yummmmm!!! Doesn't that just make you want to come through the screen and eat them?

Pumpkin Waffles
1 cup flour
2-3 heaping teaspoons baking powder (how much you use depends on how fluffy you want them. the more you use the fluffier they will be)
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 egg
1 cup milk (any kind but it is the best with buttermilk)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup brown sugar

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamom, cloves, and ginger and mix. In a small bowl, combine the egg, milk, pumpkin, and sugar and whisk together. Pour the pumpkin mixture over the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Preheat waffle maker. Put 1/2 to 3/4 cup batter in your waffle iron and cook until done. You may need to use less or more batter depending on how big your waffle iron is. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Note: you could also use whole wheat flour instead of regular and you can use this batter for pancakes as well.
