Do you ever try something on a whim, hoping it will be amazing, but accepting that it may turn out to be a hot mess?
This is not one of those situations.
I’ve just discovered that besides bacon and cream cheese, every thing is better when cooked in a waffle iron.
This Pumpkin Bread Waffle Recipe uses a tried and true pumpkin bread recipe, but then through science, the amazingness of the waffle iron, pairing of Yoplait light Pumpkin Pie Yogurt and toasted pecans, takes it from an ordinary snack to an extraordinary one.
- Typically you have to wait an HOUR for quick bread to bake…with the waffle iron, you only have to wait five minutes.
- The waffle iron makes the edges slightly crunchy, while keeping the center still quick-bread soft. For me, it is the best of both worlds…chewy and crunchy.
- Toasted pecans add just the right amount of nutty-crunchiness.
- I’ll admit, I love dipping these “waffles” in yogurt. It just adds the right amount of cream…sort of like frosting, only way better for you. (And have you seen all the seasonal flavors Yoplait has right now at Walmart? Apple Crisp. Pumpkin Pie. Caramel Apple?!?!)
What do you think? Ready to dust off the waffle iron and start seeing what kind of amazing snacks you can whip up on it?
Pumpkin Bread Waffle Recipe
A waffle iron makes everything better. This Pumpkin Bread Waffle Recipe takes everything you love about quick breads – crunchy and chewy – and is ready to go in five minutes.
Recipe Yields: Four waffles.
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup vegetable, canola and extra-light olive oil (or get crazy and replace with one container of Yoplait light Pumpkin Pie Yogurt.)
1/4 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cup of flour – feel free to “health” this up by adding whole wheat, graham or flax seed instead of all-purpose flour.
1/3 can (15-oz) of pumpkin
1/4 cup toasted pecans
One container seasonal flavored Yoplait Yogurt
1. Turn on waffle maker. Spray with cooking spray. Let heat up.
2. Mix sugar, oil (or yogurt), water and eggs together. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl, mix all spice, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt and flour.
4. Gradually, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.
5. Add pumpkin.
6. Once waffle maker has heated up, pour 1/2 cup of pumpkin bread mixture into waffle maker, and let cook for between 4 – 5 minutes.
Most likely your waffle maker will tell you that your pumpkin bread waffle is done before the 4 – 5 minutes, but let it cook for the entire time.
7. Move waffle to plate and keep making waffles until all the batter is done.
8. Top with toasted pecans and flavored yogurt.
Extra waffles can be stored covered at room temperature for up to two days.
