Best Waffle Recipe
I can say with confidence that this is the best pumpkin waffle recipe I ever made, just like the regular waffles, it’s fluffy and light, but have great flavor coming from the pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. You can convert this into a great dessert by topping it with ice cream and caramel sauce. As a breakfast, you can top it with maple syrup, honey, and toasted pecans. These pumpkin waffles will stay moist for a longer time, and when heated for few seconds in the microwave it tastes fresh again.
How to Make Waffles
To make this waffle recipe you will need to sift the dry ingredients together to make the batter lighter. In a bowl add the eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy, this step makes the waffles lighter too. Add all the wet ingredients to the eggs and beat for two minutes.
Mix the dry with the wet ingredients and mix gently, over beating the batter will make the waffles dense and chewy. Prepare your waffle maker and start making these delicious pumpkin waffles.
How to Store Pumpkin Waffles
You can enjoy these waffles whenever you want if you freeze them, and to do so, you will need a baking sheet and a Ziploc bag.
After the waffles are cool, place them on a baking sheet and freeze them. When frozen, remove the waffles from the baking sheet, place the frozen waffles in a Ziploc bag, and return them in the freezer.
When you ready to serve the frozen pumpkin waffles, remove as many as you want from the Ziploc bag and let them come to room temperature, then microwave them for few seconds.
