Cook time 3 mins
Yield Makes 6 waffles
These upgraded waffles are just as easy to make as plain ones. If you don't have a waffle iron, just pour the batter in a lightly buttered nonstick skillet for tasty pancakes.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped semisweet chocolate
  • Cooking spray
  • Garnishes: maple syrup, sweetened whipped cream, chocolate shavings

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture. Stir in chocolate.

  2. Preheat waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto hot iron, spreading to edges. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until waffle is golden brown and steaming stops. Repeat with remaining batter. Garnish, if desired.
