Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Praline Pecan Sauce

I’ve never been big on the whole pumpkin fad during the Fall months. I have maybe one Pumpkin Spice Latte a year from Starbucks just because my curiosity gets the better of me and I definitely don’t go out of my way to stock up on the cans of pumpkin puree. But the calling of a pumpkin recipes was too strong to resist this year and who am I to say nay to that calling. I can’t even believe Fall is upon us and I’m already gearing up to do some holiday posts. Every year that goes by seems to fly by faster than the last. Before we know it I’ll be talking about Christmas!

I incorporated all of the Fall flavors I love and it’s simply decadent. It reminded me of dessert and who wouldn’t want to start their day with such a yummy treat?

Ingredients
  • 3 cups Waffle Mix {I used Krusteaz Waffle Mix}
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 2 whole Eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 {15 ounce} can Pumpkin Puree
  • For the Praline Pecan Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Pecans, roughly chopped
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat your waffle iron and lightly grease with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Step 2 In a large mixing bowl combine waffle mix, vegetable oil, water, beaten eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, salt and pumpkin puree. Whisk until fully incorporated and smooth. Work in batches to cook batter in the preheated waffle iron. {Depending on the size of your waffle iron adjust accordingly. I used about 1/2 cup of batter per iron square.}
  • Step 3 Cook waffles for 3 – 4 minutes until golden brown. My waffle iron made 12 good sized waffles with this batter. Set waffles aside and keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Step 4 In a medium size saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and whisk for 2 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Turn heat down and whisk in heavy whipping cream, the mixture will bubble up but keep whisking. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla, cinnamon and pecans. Serve immediately on top of waffles. Garnish with powdered sugar or whipped cream.

Whisk up the batter and make sure to preheat your waffle iron.

Mine takes awhile to heat up so I always make sure to do a little tester batch.

To keep the waffles warm before serving, I like to set my oven to the warm setting and stick them in there between batches on a sheet pan.

 You can also make the praline sauce while the waffles are hanging out in the oven.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or dollop whipped cream or if you’re like my husband serve with a scoop of ice cream. There’s no diet rules during fall anyways.
