Spiced Pumpkin Waffles 
Quick and simple to make, these are absolutely the tastiest, and the smell when you are cooking them is amazing!  I don't know about you, but this is the time of year that I love pumpkin anything! 
Spiced Pumpkin Waffles 
They are fabulous served for breakfast with some warmed Maple Syrup and homemade applesauce.

I will sometimes add a bit of spice to the apple sauce to give it a bit of flavour, and sometimes I even do a mix of pears and apples which is really tasty!

You can cook some sausages and bacon curls on the side to go with them as well, especially if you are serving them for a holiday brunch!  Yum!

You could also serve tinned fruits, or a fruit compote on the side.

I like to warm the syrup   . . .  its really nice warmed, and I always buy amber grade.  It has more flavor.

These are not only great for breakfast however, they also make a great holiday dessert!!

Another great thing about this recipe is you can make the batter up to one day ahead and store it covered in the refrigerator.  Just bring it to room temperature for half an hour prior to using.

If its thickened up a bit upon standing overnight, you can whisk in a bit of milk to loosen it up a bit without any making any difference to the finished result.

Another thing which makes these perfect for the holidays, or indeed any time is that you can bake and freeze them for up to a month, just taking them out when you want to serve them. 
Spiced Pumpkin Waffles  Smaller sized ones can be reheated briefly in the toaster, or you can warm larger ones in a moderate oven (180*C/350*F) for about 10 minutes to warm them through!  Easy peasy!
