Pumpkin waffles are unique for autumn and winter brunches, a special breakfast at the weekend or even for a dinner party pud. These are served with an apple-cranberry relish that features maple syrup and chopped pecans. Granny Smith or even Cox's apples work a treat!
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.
I wish I could concur with other reviewers but I can't on this one. I followed the waffle recipe exactly. What I liked about this recipe was the use of WW pastry flour and pumpkin, and the spice seemed like a nice touch. In reality, I found them to be bland, very little pumpkin or spice flavor. They tasted very "eggy" to me. I needed more flour because the first few waffles were golden on the outside but not cooked in the middle. The cranberry relish is a unique touch, but couldn't make up for the waffles. I don't think I'll make this again as nice as idea as it is. - 26 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a review of the waffles only, as I did not make the relish. Fabulous! Wonderful flavor, easy to make, very good texture. I made these for company, and they were very well received. What a nice breakfast for autumn! Next time I will serve with some sautéed apples. - 17 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The apple-cranberry relish was my favorite part! It was so good, we just ate it with a spoon after the waffles/pancakes were gone! I tried to make waffles but they kept falling apart when I would take them out of my waffle maker. It's a new waffle maker, so maybe it's the cook and not the recipe. When eating the waffles alone I thought they were not going to be sweet enough, but they were the perfect flavor when mixed with the relish. I ended up making pancakes instead. This is going to be our Christmas morning breakfast for sure! All in all, a delicious recipe to add to my basket of tricks. Thanks for sharing Amie! - 07 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
