There have been a lot of raves lately on What's Cooking for Pumpkin Waffles. I had some leftover pumpkin I wanted to use up and stole the infamous waffle iron to make them. It was my first time making waffles,a nd will likely be my last. Me and the waffle iron? We don't get along so well.
My first waffle came apart when I lifted the top. It was burnt and destroyed. Thinking firsst waffles are like first pancakes, I gave it another go. This time the batter came gushing out the sides and the waffle was still inedible. It was at this point Jon came to try to "help". His first waffle was no better than mine, but beginning with his second he began having success! The recipe claims the waffles will be a nice golden brown - boy were they right! Jon was afraid we'd burned them at first, until he tasted it and realized they were just "naturally burned colored." This entire batter made about 6 edible waffles and 1 very frustrated cook. I told Jon I was done with waffles, but he was disappointed because he liked these so much. So from now on, he's in charge of waffles in our house.
