Pumpkin Waffles With Orange Syrup (Low Fat)

"If your family is tired of ordinary waffles, they'll sit up and take notice when you sit this pumpkin-infused version and its orange syrup partner on the table. I got this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Dieter's Cookbook."

  1. I wont give a star rating, as I didn't make the orange syrup that everyone is raving about. I just made the pancakes, and hey were quite good. I used a nutriwheat flour (tastes like white flour, nutrition or wheat flour) and that was the only change i made. I was hopign for more pumpkin flavour. I wqas also hoping for a more crispy waffle, but that could have been because of my flour maybe? Anyways, I would still make these again:) thanks!
  2. I loved these! Perfect for breakfast for dinner! My waffle iron didn't like the thickness of the batter so I added in about a 1/4 cup more of skim milk and that seemed to take care of it. It was still thick, but manageable. I really liked the flavour. It was overpowering at all. I also liked that I was getting some veggies into my guys. I did change up the flour a touch. I did 1 1/2 cups all purpose, 1/4 cup whole wheat, 1/4 cup cornmeal (fine). That may have contributed to the thickness of the batter too, so I don't fault the recipe in the least! It was more than likely all my fault. :) I will make these again. Thank you SO much for sharing.
  3. I love pumpkin so I just had to try these, the batter seemed very thick. I would like to try and thin the batter a little next time and also add a bit more pumpkin pie spice or maybe add in some cinnamon. They did cook up nice and fluffy. The orange syrup is the shinning star of this recipe what a nice addition to the pumpkin flavor of the waffles. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for spring 08 PAC.


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit.
