Pumpkin waffles

Our summer is busy, busy, busy as we are getting prepared for hub's law school and our subsequent transition into being expert hermits. So, we crammed a celebration for mother's day, father's day, dad's birthday, and my parents' anniversary into one weekend. First, we picked up their dog and house/dog/cat sat over Saturday and Sunday. Second, we arranged for tons of food on Sunday evening for a celebratory dinner. Hubacious got crabs to eat with dad, and I made breakfast plus lunch/snacks times roughly four. I took advantage of being at my parents' house by using an appliance they have but we do not: a waffle iron. And thus, pumpkin waffles came into delicious being.

The recipe, as you can see, claims to make 8 waffles at 255 calories per every two waffles. It also claims to use 1/4 cup of batter per waffle.

Lies, all lies! Obviously, photographic evidence lends credence to the argument that more than 1/4 cup is needed for a non-silly-looking waffle.

The correct amount, as I found, was 1/2 cup per waffle. So, you'll get around 4-5 waffles at about 255 calories per delicious waffle.

These waffles are light, nicely spiced, and naturally very flavorful. Still, don't go too light on the butter and maple syrup -- yum!

Ease: 8
Taste: 7
Comfort: 7
