These pumpkin Belgian waffles would be excellent to make for breakfast over this Thanksgiving weekend. I found this recipe over at My Sister’s Kitchen. She said it originally came from Cafe 222 in San Diego and was publish 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 the other pumpkin waffle recipe I have shared before. They are also made best 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. I also think they would be excellent to serve with apple cider syrup or with orange walnut butter and maple syrup. Oh YUM!
