Pumpkin Waffles {recipe #62}

This recipe is perfect for fall and DELICIOUS! 

 Pumpkin Waffles
{recipe borrowed, enjoyed and adapted from: Farm Chicks in the Kitchen}

Makes 8 Waffles

2 cups flour
2 T. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 large eggs (separated)
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 cup (or more) canned pumpkin
veggie oil for brushing the waffle iron
REAL maple syrup, whipped cream etc for serving

1) Heat the oven to 250 degrees Farenheit. Heat waffle iron. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
2) Whisk together egg yolks, milk, butter, and pumpkin in a medium sized bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stirring until combined. 
3) Beat the egg whites in a small bowl (or KITCHEN AID MIXER!) until stiff and fold them into the batter.
4) Brush the waffle iron with the oil and spoon about 1/4 cup of batter per each waffle in the iron. *Our waffle iron makes 4 at once. If yours makes one, just do the 1/4 cup. As always with waffles it takes a bit of testing/knowing your waffle iron! :)* Cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
5) Transfer waffles to the rack in the oven to keep warm and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with desired toppings.

I bet that this would be AMAZING with a maple whipped cream topping! :) 

What is your favorite fall breakfast?
