Pumpkin Waffles
Ingredients
2
tablespoons brown sugar
1
tablespoon baking powder
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4
teaspoon ground ginger
1 3/4
cups milk
1
cup canned pumpkin or mashed, cooked pumpkin
3
tablespoons butter, melted
1
teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (optional)
1
recipe Cider-Honey Syrup (optional)
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, and ginger; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine milk, pumpkin, egg yolks, butter, and, if desired, orange peel. Add pumpkin mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until combined (batter should be lumpy).
  3. In a small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold beaten egg whites into pumpkin mixture, leaving a few puffs of egg white.
  4. Heat a lightly greased waffle baker. Pour some of the batter onto the waffle grids. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturers directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grids. Repeat with remaining batter.
  5. Serve waffles immediately or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 300 degree F oven. If desired, serve with Cider-Honey Syrup. Makes 16 (4-inch) waffles.
