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!

On my last post here at Portland Mama I shared that one of my favorite fall combinations is apples and caramel.
