Pumpkin Belgian Waffles

These pumpkin Belgian waffles are a delightful twist on a classic. They are a breakfast experience that’s nothing short of cozy and comforting! I found this recipe years ago over at My Sister’s Kitchen. She said it originally came from Cafe 222 in San Diego and was published in Gourmet Magazine. If this was from a restaurant, I knew it was gonna be good! Whether you have guests that you want to impress or just enjoy a great family breakfast, these waffles will work.

They are definitely light and airy, more so than my recipe for pumpkin waffle recipe. They are also best if you make them in a Belgian waffle maker. Another thing I love about this recipe is it doesn’t require separating eggs and whipping the whites.  So easy to whip together. Now they are great with good old butter and syrup, but I had some Blackburn’s Butter Pecan syrup in my cupboard which was also tasty. They also would be excellent to serve with my apple cider syrup, buttermilk syrup, or orange walnut butter and maple syrup. Oh YUM!
