Pumpkin Spice Waffles

10th anniversary, mom's house, pumpkin waffles 046

In our family we traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday at my mom’s , so that leaves Monday as a relaxing day at home, complete with leftovers sent home with us.  Monday morning this year, we all enjoyed a relaxed time and a big wonderful breakfast.  I had picked up some recipes from the egg booth at the fair, and this one for pumpkin spice waffles caught my eye.  They certainly were delicious, even the kids liked them, and I think they may need to become part of our Thanksgiving tradition.  For my American friends who have yet to celebrate Thanksgiving, you might want to give this one a try.

  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans, chopped

5.  Spray waffle iron with cooking spray; add batter and cook until waffles are set and golden brown, about 2 minutes.

6.  Toast pecans in a dry frying pan on a medium heat, watch carefully so they don’t burn.  Chop.  Serve waffles sprinkled with chopped pecans, whip cream and drizzled with real maple syrup.

If you do not have a waffle iron you can use the batter to make pancakes.

When I was looking up the recipe here, I noticed it was in the dessert category, rather than breakfast.  Perhaps that’s why we all loved it so much! 😉  Try it with your own family this weekend.
