Pumpkin Waffles

I kinda, and by kinda I mean 100% totally love pumpkin recipes.

Pumpkin waffles with blueberries and syrup

If you have been reading The Curious Frugal for a while, you might have guessed this. 🙂

I have recipes for healthy pumpkin scones with maple glaze, gluten-free pumpkin scones, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin bagels that take 20 minutes to make start to finish (they are SO good!!).

When I started my food blog Best Mug Cakes, I knew one of my first recipes was going to include pumpkin. If you’re a big fan of pumpkin you can head over there too and check out this 2-minute gluten-free pumpkin mug cake.

Since I’m getting even more pumpkin-y than usual as our kids head back to school (Miss O starts kindergarten this year!), I wanted to share a new pumpkin recipe with you.

With loads of pumpkins visible in every patch, pick up a sugar pumpkin and make fresh puree for use in this pumpkin waffle recipe. Top waffles with fresh cranberry syrup (recipe below!).

Everyone loves pumpkin, whether it’s used in autumn decorations, as scary Halloween doorstops, or pureed and turned into delicious pumpkin pies, cakes, doughnuts or waffles. Try a new recipe that promises to become an old family favorite. Not only simple to make, but full of the flavors that announce the arrival of fall and winter holiday seasons.

My Favorite Waffle Irons

Having the right tools to make pumpkin waffles includes a good waffle iron. Here are three good choices.

Krups Waffle Irons

Krups makes several different waffle irons, this particular one is the Krups Belgian Waffle Maker. This waffle maker is rated 4-1/2 stars out of 5 and makes four crispy waffles in four minutes. The non-stick cooking plates prevent waffles from sticking and make cleanup easy.

This convenient waffle iron works quickly and cleanly making Belgian waffles for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

Villaware Waffle Irons

For a holiday breakfast, brunch or dessert, the Uno Boat Waffle Iron makes two 6-inch long waffle boats which can be filled with fresh fruit, ice cream or any favorite topping. This waffle iron is a great price and received 4-1/2 stars out of 5.

Another perfect choice for serving up waffles at breakfast, brunch or dessert with its unique boat shape and easy cleanup. Kids especially love these waffle boats and it’s a really easy way to get them to eat their fruit!

Car Waffle Maker

I don’t have this waffle maker yet but I want it and know my daughter will flip over pumpkin waffles in cute mini car and truck shapes. 🙂
