Servings: 6 people
Whisk or Mixer
- 2 cups all-purpose flour/plain flour 240g
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 3g
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 2g optional
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves 1g optional
- 2 tsp. baking powder 8g
- 1/2 tsp. salt 2g
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tbsp. white granulated sugar 28g can add more if you want them sweeter
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 3ml
- 1 1/2 cups of milk whole, 2%, skim, Almond, etc. (355ml)
- 1/4 cup butter melted (57g)
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups of canned pumpkin puree 240g to 360g
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, baking powder, and salt.
In a large bowl add the eggs and whisk them. Then add the sugar and vanilla extract and whisk them in with the eggs. If you like the plain waffles to be sweeter you may want to double the amount of sugar, so do a 1/4 cup. Next, add in the milk, melt the butter and add it, and add the canned pumpkin puree. And whisk until smooth. You can use a hand mixer too if you like.
Now just add the dry mixture a third of it at a time with the batter, mixing it in with the whisk or hand or stand mixer until all incorporated. The waffle batter is ready.
Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray, and turn it on. Mine has an indicator beep when it is ready to use. If you don't have an indicator, just let it heat up for about 5 minutes before using it. Use something like a measuring cup and add the waffle batter to the iron. Don't add too much! Haha, otherwise it will overflow out of the iron and make a bit of a mess.Cook the waffles until nice and golden brown. If you like them extra crispy leave them in the iron a little longer. Mine has an indicator that lets me know when they are ready.Use a fork or something to lift up the waffle, then place it on a plate and serve right away.
If you don't mind the waffles to get soft after cooking them, you can just stack them on a plate while you make the rest of them. Or to keep them a little crisper lay them in one single later on a wire rack.
Now you can serve these waffles however you like. Add butter and maple syrup, topped with powdered sugar, or add whipped cream and a fruit sauce like this strawberry sauce. Enjoy! These nutritional facts are for 1 plain waffle and do not include and toppings like butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, etc.
