Pumpkin Waffles with Orange Walnut Butter

by Laura

This weekend, I decided to try a recipe for pumpkin waffles with orange walnut butter that I found in my September/October 2008 issue of Simple and Delicious. My eight-year-old and eleven-year-old boys were not impressed. Now, my 11 year old would not even touch them after his first bite. My 8 year old said he only liked the edges. I think they both let the “pumpkin” in the waffles ruin their taste buds for them before they even tried them.

My husband ate them but said he preferred plain old waffles. He tends to not be very adventurous when it comes to food. I kind of drive him nuts, when I try all these recipes. However, he isn’t complaining when it’s something he ends up liking. Now, my four-year-old daughter and I loved these. She ate two whole waffles herself.

I have to tell you, that the orange walnut butter is what put these waffles over the top for me. The whole combination of the pumpkin and cinnamon waffle followed with melty orange walnut butter and finished off with sweet maple syrup was absolutely divine. This seemed more like something you would find in an upscale restaurant. My husband did agree the orange butter was where it was at with these waffles. So take my word, you have to try this. However, there are no promises for picky eaters.

I made these this morning and I really enjoyed the waffles. I think my family is getting sick of my obsession with all things pumpkin, but i am not!

I made the butter with orange peel from a spice bottle and it did not taste orangey at all! It was just grainy butter. I wonder if I would have used fresh orange peel or orange juice or orange marmalade it would have turned out more flavorful? We didn't use the walnuts as nobody in my family really likes them.

Anyway, the waffles were good with just regular butter and maple syrup.
