Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Are you feeling the chill in the air? Fall is perfect weather for comfort food, and that means Pumpkin Spice Waffles for breakfast! Start your day off with a plate of these lightly spiced, toasty-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside waffles, and you can’t go wrong.

This recipe is perfect for lazy weekends at home with family. The batter makes enough waffles for a hearty brunch, with some left over that you can freeze and pop in to the toaster for a weekday morning treat.

We love to fill the nooks and crannies with a generous pat of Clover Organic Butter and maple syrup, or top the stack with sautéed apples and fresh Clover Whipped Cream . . . the possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
