Our kids LOVE waffles, which they call pan-waffles…unfortunately, that’s also what they call pancakes. So, yeah…confusing, much? But I digress. They also love pumpkin flavoring. I’m pretty sure I injected this love of pumpkin into them in utero. So, for some unbeknownst up until now, we haven’t made pumpkin waffles. Then Bug, our 3-year-old, and I were flipping through her favorite cookbook, Royal Recipe Collection Disney Princess Cookbook, and found a recipe for Cinderella’s Pumpkin Carriage Waffles. We made them immediately
Adapted from Cinderella’s Pumpkin Carriage Waffles, Royal Recipe Collection Disney Princess Cookbook.
- 2 cups whole wheat white flour
- 2 tablespoons sucanat (or brown sugar)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons applesauce (or oil)
Mix dry ingredients together (through ginger). Mix wet ingredients together (remaining ingredients). Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined.
Pour about 3/4 cup waffle batter into your waffle iron. Cook to desired brownness. Repeat.
Yield: 10 servings.
Incredible! We (the kids and I) absolutely love these waffles. And the pumpkin-indifferent husband actually liked them, too. Bonus! We’ll definitely be making these again. That princess cookbook has certainly more than repaid its 99-cent thrift store price.
