These waffles are the perfect breakfast food for a crisp fall morning. The flavor is mellow. I decided to try them with two different toppings. The first batch was topped with some spiced plum preserves. The preserves are incredible. In fact they are so incredible that they completely overpowered the mellow flavor of the waffles. The combination tasted great but could just as easily have been achieved with a regular waffle recipe.
The second batch was topped with powdered sugar and warm maple syrup. Perfect combination. The sugar and syrup did not overpower the mellow flavor of the waffles.
As you can see from the last pic my waffles did not exactly come out picture perfect. The batter turned out to be pretty thick which made it hard to spread evenly across the waffle maker. I enjoyed eating these but found myself thinking that for the same amount of time and effort I could have made another batch of pumpkin bread.
The pumpkin bread is one of my favorite things that I have made recently. There are many ways that you can transform the bread into a breakfast treat. I was thinking that next time I would make them into muffins with a crumb topping or drizzle a slice with spiced butter or a cinnamon/sugar/butter mixture to make it more of a breakfast food.
