printable recipe with picture

*These were fabulous. My syrup turned out pretty thick. I think I over boiled it a little, but my brother said he loved it that way! So I guess boil it to your personal preference!

*Serves 6

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin

2 cups milk

4 eggs, separated

1/4 cup butter, melted

APPLE CIDER SYRUP

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup apple cider

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons butter

Directions:

1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, salt, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin, milk, and egg yolks. Whip the egg whites in a clean dry bowl until soft peaks form.
3. Stir the flour mixture and 1/4 cup melted butter to the pumpkin mixture, stirring just to combine. Use a whisk or rubber spatula to fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the batter, stirring gently until incorporated. Fold in the remaining egg whites.
