I love love LOVE waffles!  You have heard this before, I know.  I’m very into waffles.  I feel like they hold up well under the syrup and don’t get all soggy right away, especially if you make them nice and crisp!  I used my pumpkin waffles recipe as a baseline, and then changed it up a bit to make it more cinnamon-y because you can never have too much cinnamon…kind of like butter…you can never have too much.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles with Bacon Maple SyrupI had a can of 100% pumpkin puree leftover from Thanksgiving so I used that instead of buying a real pumpkin and roasting it myself like I did in the original recipe.  I did this because, really, why waste leftovers?  And this is real life…not everyone has time to roast a pumpkin.  I decided to jazz up the syrup by adding some Torani Bacon Syrup to my regular maple syrup because you can never have too much bacon either.  It’s amazing I don’t weigh 1000 pounds with all the bacon, maple syrup, butter and waffles I have.  Everything in moderation…that’s my motto.

I also added some candied gingerbread bacon on the side, but that is completely optional…regular bacon will do.  I’ll share that recipe with you in a few days!  But for now, you can find it on The SweetPhi Blog as my very first guest post! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Pumpkin Waffles with Bacon Maple Syrup
The Elements
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 TBSP Brown Sugar
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 can of 100% pure pumpkin puree (I used Thanksgiving leftovers!)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup of butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons bacon syrup (I used Torani)
  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl (first 4 ingredients)
  2. Mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl (last 4 ingredients)
  3. Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in the large bowl, in parts, and mix just until combined.
  4. Take about ½ to ¾ cup of batter and put in the middle of a waffle iron set on your desired temp. (I would suggest medium to medium-dark because although the outside was crispy, the inside was a nice warm soft pumpkin-y center). I like to use an offset spatula to spread the batter a bit before closing (see below).
  5. When waffle iron says the waffle is done, check to see if it’s to your liking then take out.
  1. Combine ingredients and warm either over the stove or in the microwave or serve at room temperature, whatever your preference!
The Verdict
So easy and fun to make. Making this ahead is super easy, you can basically make it all the night before by combining the dry ingredients in one bowl, then cover in plastic wrap and set aside, then mix the wet ingredients and cover in plastic wrap and place in fridge overnight. Then you can combine them in the morning and make the waffles! Easy peasy!
