Pumpkin Waffles

Fall has definitely arrived here in Portland.

The mornings are cool and the trees are turning colors.  I LOVE this time of year – definitely my favorite.

What says Fall better than pumpkin?  My friend Jane has raved to me about her pumpkin waffles for years.  I finally got her to give me the recipe this last week!

I made them for Sunday breakfast this week  and they were so yummy.  I am not a big pumpkin fan but I liked these waffles.  They are perfect paired with buttermilk syrup or cinnamon syrup.

I think I would like anything that was covered in buttermilk syrup or cinnamon syrup!

Beware:  they are rich!

Pop them on a Halloween plate and you’ve got the perfect Halloween morning breakfast or dinner.  Fill up the tummies of those little mummies before you send them out!
