The batter for our moist pumpkin pie waffles recipe is easily prepared the night before, so you can be ready to rock and roll when it’s time to make breakfast.
While these waffles have a hint of that wonderful pumpkin taste we all love, the addition of this squash has a greater purpose. Pumpkin also makes your waffles super moist!
If you’re making a large batch, transfer cooked waffles to a cooling rack then place in a 200-degree oven so air can circulate around the finished product. This way the waffles will stay crispy (rather than getting limp and soggy) while staying nice and warm!
