Prior to my wedding my sister and Godmother hosted a wedding shower for me where each person was asked to bring a recipe card. To this day, I cherish those recipes and I have made almost all of them - most of them I make fairly often. When I share those recipes with my husband and children I feel like I'm sharing a piece of history with them. I also love taking those recipes and tweaking them to add a personal touch.
I had the idea to tweak a recipe that was handed down to me years ago from my Great Aunt, and turn it into the perfect taste of Fall. She gave me the most incredible Sour Cream Waffle recipe and my family absolutely loves those waffles but I knew I could give them a little pizzaz by adding some pumpkin. The result was, well you should just try this and let me know what you think. I love these bad boys.
1 cup sour cream
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp + a dash pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup whipped cream
1/8 tsp cinnamon
Preheat your waffle iron (I use this one).
In a large bowl combine the eggs, sour cream, buttermilk, and pumpkin. Mix until smooth. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Mix until smooth and then combine gradually with the egg mixture.
Once the wet ingredients are completely incorporated into the dry ingredients add batter to your waffle iron and cook to your desired doneness.
While the waffles are baking combine the whipped cream and cinnamon in a small bowl. Top baked waffle with whipped cream mixture and then garnish with a dash of pumpkin pie spice.
The sweetness from the whipped cream topping is the perfect accompaniment to the waffle and with a cup of coffee or tea this truly is the perfect meal for any time of day.
Tip: Put individual waffles in a sandwich bag and freeze them. They reheat great in the oven or a toaster.
