Pumpkin Waffles

Did you know that there is a whole blog dedicated to the pursuit of the perfect pumpkin waffle recipe? No lie--someone actually made pumpkin waffles 90 times in order to get it just right! So, really, there is no reason for me to even try to make my own recipe. I used this one: Ultimate Pumpkin Waffles Recipe

I followed the recipe exactly and these really are mighty good pumpkin waffles. Of course, me being me, I had to add something, so I fried a few apples and made a little flavored whipped cream. To be honest, the waffles didn't need anything extra. A little maple syrup would have sufficed. Or maybe just the whipped cream I made (I put some booze in it--heehee). The apples are good by themselves, too, so it's ok that I made them. :)

Start by whisking those dry ingredients together.

Whip up a few egg whites...

Mix the wet ingredients: pumpkin, egg yolks, butter, and milk.

Blend the wet stuff with the dry stuff and fold in the egg whites.

While it's baking, melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Add apple slices, sprinkle a little brown sugar over the top, and saute for about 20 minutes on medium heat.

Caramelized apples. Nothing better.

Good stuff ! This one is a keeper....
