Food Thursday: Let’s talk pumpkin

October in Indiana is my most favorite time of year. The weather has cool nights and crisp days. The leaves on the trees share a beautiful blast of color with us before winter. And pumpkin is on sale at the grocery store. I love pumpkin recipes and so do my kids. A few weeks ago my waffle-loving child (a child after my own heart) asked if I could make pumpkin waffles. So on a Sunday morning I did just that. You’re welcome 🙂

Pumpkin Waffles

  • 2 1/2 cups of your favorite “just add water” pancake mix (I recommend Krusteaz)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 2 TB oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • a couple generous dashes of cinnamon

1. Mix all ingredients together, first with a spoon to get them to stick together and then with a whisk to get a little air in the batter. Don’t overmix – there will be some lumps.
2. Cook in your waffle iron, this makes approx 16 4-inch waffles.

Look at that – just two steps to pumpkin-y goodness on your breakfast (or breakfast-for-dinner) table!

And because I’m feeling generous this morning, here’s a little more pumpkin for you:
