Pumpkin Waffles


This last weekend I decided we needed a little fall goodness for breakfast.

I couldn't find a recipe for whole wheat pumpkin waffles that looked just right for me.
So I ending up playing around and this is the recipe I ended up with:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
(then I added a handful of brown sugar because I thought it needed a little something)
1 T. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
nutmeg & ginger (sorry I'm not very good at measuring things!)
pinch (or so) salt
2 eggs
4 T. melted butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (that is what I measured- then I kept adding more because I REALLY like pumpkin- so I could have ended up with closer to a cup!)
enough milk to thin the batter to the right consistency
Pecans

I started out with the Pecans on top, because Bobby wasn't sure that he wanted them, but then for the last few, I chopped them up and cooked them in the waffles- YUM! I would suggest cooking them in!

Many of you are better (and more precise) chefs than I, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love them!

Did you just make this up on your own? I am so afraid of trying to cook without a concise recipe to follow. And I never vary a recipe unless someone else has tried it first! They look and sound so good!

It is a oombo of things I've made before. I thought about adding pumpkin to the traditional waffle recipe I make, but decided to check other peoples recipes out because i wanted to see if they did anything different using whole wheat. But I didn't really like those recipes so i just did basic with a few add ons like the spices etc. But it isn't too different than a normal one- just added spices, pumpkin and wheat flour instead of white...

I made them on Halloween! They were so tasty. I wish I would have kept adding more pumpkin. Both Scott and I agreed that we could have added even more! Thanks for the recipe!
