I love pumpkin. Of course most of my memories around it involve it in the form of a pie. But the best time to eat pumpkin pie is for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving or Christmas. Thanks to my Mom and Grampa, I have learned the dessert for breakfast habit. They would always do it after a holiday, so I did too. Which is probably partially the reason I am addicted to anything sugar. So when I told my boyfriend of all the pumpkin things I really want to make, he said "It's not fall, don't make pumpkin things. Pumpkin isn't for spring." I disagree!! :)
Lets face it, most of us use canned pumpkin puree. I have never even thought of using anything else. You can buy it all year round so be prepared for more pumpkin posts to come. On to the waffles.
These are a nice change from normal waffles, which I already adore. The crystalized ginger is great in it because it makes little crunchy bites through out the waffle. One batch of the recipe only makes maybe 4 big ones, or 5 somewhat smaller ones like I did. So if you have more that 2 people I would suggest doubling up.
