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
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 )
