Challenge #1: Pumpkin Waffles

On Thursday, we made our first recipe as part of our Food Jules Cookbook Challenge. It is a NEW recipe and it is easy and delicious, just in time for the Fall season: Pumpkin Waffles.

Pumpkin Waffles

The pureed pumpkin in these waffles makes them moist, sweet and super yummy, even without butter or maple syrup! The Cerrato family (including my two nieces) give this recipe a thumbs up. Make it with your kids for breakfast or as a dinner alternative.

Pumpkin Waffles

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tblsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups organic milk
  • 4 tblsp unsalted organic butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh)

  3. Slightly butter waffle iron and pour batter in center of each section.
  4. Cook waffles for 3-5 minutes or until light brown. Enjoy with or without butter and pure maple syrup.

  1. I can’t wait to make these!! However I have to barrow a waffle iron so I don’t know when I’ll get to them. Stupid question, can I make these into pancakes with this recipe instead?
