yum. enough said. everyone liked them. as far as i know this was the little one’s first foray into the something made with pumpkin. he’s a fan so far. these waffles are like a soft pumpkin pie pancake bread. a lame description, i know, but yum. did i already say that???

pumpkin ginger waffles (from country living magazine)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon cinamon

1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

2 large eggs

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground ginger, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. remove 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture and toss with crystallized ginger in a small bowl. set aside. whisk eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl. combine with flour mixture. stir in butter and fold in reserved crystallized ginger mixture. do not overmix. heat a waffle iron and make waffles, using about 1/2 cup batter for each one. keep warm in 200F oven, if desired.
