Wacky Worldly Waffle Wednesday: Pumpkin Waffles with Spiced Maple Whipped Cream

Since it's Halloween, I decided to make our Waffle Wednesday a little less Worldly, and just stick with something festive.

I based my pumpkin waffle recipe on this one, and decided to make some maple whipped cream in a whipped cream maker I'm borrowing.  I've made pumpkin waffles before but that recipe was for my Belgian waffle maker.  This one is for my standard waffle maker.



Pumpkin Spice Waffles

1/4 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 c skim milk
1 15-oz can pumpkin
4 Tbsp melted butter
1 c white whole wheat flour
1/2 c cake flour (or all white whole wheat flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger

 Cream together the brown sugar, eggs, milk, pumpkin, and butter.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly, mixing well.  Oil and preheat your waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.  Serve with maple syrup, or Spiced Maple Whipped Cream (recipe below) if desired.

Spiced Maple Whipped Cream

1 c whipping cream
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon

If using a whipped cream charger, combine all ingredients in the charger, swirl gently, and insert an NO2 cartridge, venting it into the charger.  If the whipped cream is not stabilized enough, use another NO2 cartridge.

If you don't have a whipped cream charger, you can whip the ingredients together in a mixer until peaks form.

Pin It!
