Tips and Tricks
If you want your waffles extra crispy, add a teaspoon of cornstarch to your batter.
For sweet toppings, top your pumpkin waffles with a drizzle of nut butter, homemade Nutella, or maple syrup. Add some chopped nuts for a crunchy finish! Or for a real Fall treat, top your waffles with some chopped apples, walnuts, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
For savory toppings, top your pumpkin waffles with a sprinkle of cheese, crispy bacon, or slices of avocado.
