Pumpkin Ginger Waffles
Country Living 2009 Oct. Issue
1 ¼ cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ C finely chopped crystallized ginger (I didn’t have this so I grated 1 orange peel into the mixture)
2 large eggs
¾ C buttermilk (I didn’t have this either so I added mixed with some lemon juice)
½ C sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Tbsp melted butter
Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon in a bowl. (If using the crtystalized ginger remove 2 Tbsp of flour mixture and toss it together and then set aside.
Whisk eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin, sugar and vanilla in another bowl.
Combine flour with pumpkin mixture. Stir in butter and fold in crystallized ginger mixture (if using). Do not overmix. Heat waffle iron and drop about ½ cup batter per each one.
Makes 5 -five inch round waffles.
