Cinderella's Pumpkin Waffles with Butter Maple Pecan Topping

These cozy waffles are perfect for those crisp autumn mornings ( Yes, I am aware it is June but can't a girl dream? ) Autumn is my favorite season and these are my favorite waffles, i make them all year long using canned pumpkin puree and out of season or not, these bad boys are delicious every time I eat them. Serve them up for your lover next Sunday morning and treat her like the princess she is...Enjoy! 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pinch salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 2/3 cups milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1 Cup Real Maple Syrup
1 Cup Chopped Pecans
1 tbsp. Butter ( I like to use salted but unsalted works too ) 
1 cinnamon stick

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt in large bowl.

In a second bowl add eggs, sugar, pumpkin, milk, and butter; beat well.

Gently fold in the flour mixture.

Cook according to your waffle iron directions.

 ( I  like to do these in my belgian waffle iron, it takes a little longer but trust me well worth it! They come out a nice deep, golden brown. mmmm! ) 

To make the topping simply pour 1 cup of real maple syrup in a small sauce pan, add pecans, nutmeg, and cinnamon stick. 

Cook on low until syrup is hot, stirring frequently. remove cinnamon stick and spoon topping onto waffles.

Best served with a side of fruit and a screwdriver ( Vodka/Orange Juice ) 

What do you like to top your waffles with?
