Pumpkin Waffles

This recipe is from the Kennebec Inn a gorgeous bed and breakfast in Bath, Maine. Sounds like the food isn't too bad either! I can't wait to try out this recipe this weekend.

Pumpkin Waffles

To save time in the morning, mix the dry ingredients the night before. Top the waffles with fresh fruits in season and whipped cream for added elegance.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs, room temperature
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup finely chopped apple, peeled and cored
1/3 cup ground toasted walnuts

In a large bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside. In a separate large bowl, beat together the eggs and brown sugar. Add the buttermilk, butter, and pumpkin; beat well. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended. Fold in the apples and nuts.

Ladle the batter into a hot, well-oiled waffle iron (or non-oiled no-stick waffle pan) and cook until done. Serve with butter and a choice of warmed syrups such as maple, blueberry, and raspberry.

Serves: 4
