Give Thanks: Pumpkin Waffles

Allison from Cupcake Diaries

I am so excited to be guest posting here at Whatever Dee-Dee Wants today!! I'm sharing a recipe that has fall written all over it. I can't get over it!!

My husband and I came up with our own recipe for pumpkin waffles a couple months ago and it has been our favorite thing to eat since. We combined the pumpkiny flavor of the waffles with a creamy and delicious cinnamon syrup. It tastes like fall would taste if you could take a big bite out of the air. That sounds weird. But you get what I'm saying! I love love love these waffles with this syrup!
(The syrup recipe comes from the fabulous Jamie from Jamie Cooks It Up! I've tried to make my own cinnamon syrup recipe, but I can't get over hers. It's SO good!)

Pumpkin Waffles

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 c. canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

Mix all of the dry ingredients together. I like to sift them all together then pour in what didn't sift of the brown sugar. In a separate bowl combine all the wet ingredients.

Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix together. Spray the inside of the waffle iron on the top and the bottom and cook the waffles.

Cinnamon Syrup
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. corn syrup
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. evaporated milk

Place sugar, corn syrup, water, and cinnamon in a saucepan and stir well to combine. Heat over medium-high heat and cook for about 4 minutes when it starts boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and evaporated milk. Whisk together. Serve warm with these fabulous Pumpkin Waffles. (Store any leftovers in the fridge.)
