Pumpkin Pear Waffles

Recipe for Pumpkin Pear Waffles
adapted from this recipe

  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin (1 can) or cooked pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • pear slices
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon to taste

Stir together dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, mix together milk, pumpkin, eggs, and butter with an electric mixer or rotary beater.  Combine wet and dry ingredients, mixing for about 1 minute on high speed.  Preheat waffle iron and coat with nonstick cooking spray or brush with oil.  Add about 3/4 cup batter and bake according to waffle iron instructions.

Keep waffles warm until ready to serve.  Top with pear slices, sprinkle with cinnamon, and drizzle with maple syrup.  Makes about 8 servings.  Freeze any extra waffles for future use.
