I changed my menu to include pumpkin waffles rather than pancakes. A waffle iron seemed like less effort than a griddle. These waffles got a terrific review from TJ, but Erica however woke up on the wrong side of the bed! Nothing I offered the girl was satisfying. The only thing that would make her happy was if I were to remake the waffles and leave the pumpkin out. She refused to try them. I let her know she was welcome to eat something else for breakfast, but I wasn't going to help her out, considering I already made breakfast. The poor girl is going to go to school hungry. (which will make her even grumpier).
The lighting in my kitchen was terrible this morning, but here you go.
Mix dry ingredients together first.
Then in a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients and add them together. Do not over mix! Gently wetten the dry ingredients with your wet ones.
Pour onto waffle iron and leave until crisp. I opened mine too early, and the waffle fell apart. Leave it closed until you know they are done.
I don't cut waffles or pancakes for my kids anymore. But they still like it in bite size pieces. So I often find them like this, tearing their waffles up with their fingers.
