I've always said how much I love making breakfast on the weekends. In the fall, I seem to be revitalized when I can add pumpkin to pancakes and waffles. However, trying to mimic the flavors of pumpkin pie into a waffle or a pancake can lead to a very long tiresome ingredient list. When I find these recipes, I look at it like a foodie challenge and try to be able to make it usable for the career girl.
I found an amazing recipe for pumpkin waffles from Gourmet. For the original longer recipe click here. What I did was to swap out the flour for self-rising flour which also took out the salt and baking powder. For the spices I swapped out pumpkin pie spice instead of the individual components (i.e. cloves, ginger and cinnamon) The result was another great weekend breakfast which was made from scratch but simplified at the same time. If it's just the two of you, you'll also have enough batter for both Saturday and Sunday morning.
