Spiced Pumpkin Waffles is about to become your favorite fall breakfast!
Waffles are a easy and tasty breakfast, and can easily be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge or freezer. Make a big batch, then you can warm them up in a toaster or in the oven any morning.
Waffles are better than pancakes. I’m just going to say it. Do you agree? There’s really not much of a difference, so I know it’s a silly thing to have an opinion about. But I like having the little holes to catch my butter and syrup.
Speaking of butter and syrup–
Chef Shamy Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter goes great with waffles– both in the batter and on top!
Who says pumpkin is only a fall thing anyway? I vote for pumpkin all year long.
Even though pumpkin is in season during the fall, you can find cans of pumpkin puree anytime of the year. So whip up a batch of Pumpkin Waffles in March and you’ll be so happy!
Pumpkin is usually accompanied by pumpkin pie spice. It’s a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice. You can make your own if you’d like, but I usually buy the pre-mixed at the store to save some time.
Add Cinnamon Honey Butter to the mix, and you’ve got extra delicious spiced waffles!
Breakfast or Dinner?
I love breakfast for dinner– so evening waffles is a frequent occurrence in my house.
The great thing about this particular recipe is that the batter itself doesn’t have any sugar– which means that the waffle isn’t very sweet by itself. So, you have some options of how to serve it. Butter and syrup, absolutely.
Toast some pecans in some cinnamon butter and serve with whipped cream. Use caramel sauce, or even ice cream for heaven’s sake!
There’s no wrong way or wrong time of day!
