Pumpkin Waffles

A few people asked for the waffle recipe I made last week. I found a basic recipe on the internet and tweaked it. Here's what I came up with.

Pumpkin Waffles

1 egg, beaten (I used the extra yolks, too)
3 egg whites, beaten until stiff
6 tablespoons of brown sugar
12 oz evaporated milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 c pumpkin
3 tsp of vanilla
2 c flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 teaspoon of cloves

optional add ins (which I didn't do):
3/4 c apples, finely diced
1/4 c toasted walnuts

Beat together egg, yolks, sugar, milk, oil, pumpkin and vanilla.

Sift together dry ingredients.

Add dry mixture to the wet mixture - (don't over-mix).

Fold in egg whites, and apple and nuts if you are adding them.

The kids loved these, Jeremy gave them good reviews, and I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin so I was all over it! Let me know what you think.

Could be a good Easter or General Conference breakfast option this weekend.

This is how I know we would get along in "real life", because I made up a pumpkin chocolate chip pancake recipe that I handed out near Thanksgiving, and people loved it so much that I even had one woman ask me if it was okay for her to give it to all of her neighbors for Christmas. the point being that you and I both have an affinity for pumpkin related breakfast foods.
