I don't know about you folks, but around here the kids are headed back to school. Which says one thing loud and clear to me - it's time for ALL THINGS PUMPKIN. Okay, okay. Maybe I'm a touch premature, but after the incredibly hot summer we've been having, my family is craving Fall weather and Fall flavors. What we're not craving, thanks to overloaded school and activity schedules, are complicated recipes. And I suspect most folks feel the same way.
For that reason, I think you're going to love (love, love, love) this Simple Pumpkin Spice Waffles recipe. It's full of delicious pumpkin flavor, and only takes 5 easy ingredients. My kids devoured them, but next time I'll make a double (triple???) batch and throw extras in the freezer for super simple breakfasts!
We topped ours with butter and pure maple syrup, but if you want to get fancy definitely try some Whipped Maple Cinnamon Honey Butter or fresh whipped cream. Mmmmmm. And be sure to serve it with a pumpkin spiced coffee (or frozen coffee drink if it's still a million degrees where you are)!
To make this recipe incredibly simple, we started with Bisquick. I'm a firm believer in using shortcuts when it will make life easier - and who doesn't need a little help at the beginning of a new school year?
Once upon a time I thought using prepared mixes was a dirty little secret. But then I asked my mother-in-law for her biscuit recipe. She's laughed and said "BISQUICK!" She's an exceptional cook and makes nearly everything from scratch so when she told me she loves Bisquick and to stop making things harder than they need to be, I promised myself I'd no longer feel guilty for going the easy route!
