Pumpkin Waffles

Labels: , , , ,

I've expanded my use of pumpkin and squash this season. I already made [and demolished] pumpkin pastillas de leche (milk candies) and also added mashed cooked pumpkin to yeast waffles. These waffles are really delicious specially with heavy cream sweetened with maple syrup and sprinkled with pumpkin seed brittle. I love pumpkins!

Pumpkin Yeast Waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
1½ cups mashed pumpkin
½ tablespoon instant yeast
3 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 cup water
6 tablespoons light olive or grapeseed oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the first 5 ingredients. Mix in the rest of ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Preheat waffle maker and bake according to manufacturer's directions.
Maple Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • Beat together syrup and cream until thick but still pourable. Transfer into a squirt bottle if desired.
Pumpkin Seed Brittle
¼ cup sugar
½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • Cook sugar over medium heat in a skillet until caramelized and golden in color. Quickly stir in toasted seeds and transfer in one layer into a buttered piece of aluminum foil. Let cool completely; break into small pieces.

OMG - it looks GREAT
I've never eaten pumpkin waffles, but I'd sure LOVE to

The texture is the same; flavors are slightly different. Our calabaza has a slightly stronger flavor, a bit sweeter, and also is more yellowish in color, I think. I haven't had it for a long time.:)

Thanks. You'll like it.:)
