pumpkin spice pecan waffles

i'm a big bath & body works candle fiend. well, correction: i'm a fall and winter bath & body works candle fiend. when september rolls around, i make my annual pilgrimage to bath & body works to pick up pumpkin, spice and autumn themed candles, and i enjoy the hell out of them well into the holiday season. nope, this post is not sponsored, i'm just super pumped about candles. anyway!

one of my favorite scents is pumpkin pecan waffles. i honestly didn't set out to make these waffles after the candle scent. it truly wasn't until i was mixing up the batter that i realized it! so light a fall themed candle and get to work on these waffles; they're delicious, oh so perfect for fall and quite a wonderful way to wake up on a saturday morning.

oh, and can i please mention that these are the first waffles i made in my new waffle maker? they're not perfect, but they're waffles. yes, the pinnacle of being 25 is having a waffle iron. go adulthood go.

pumpkin spice pecan waffles

2 cups flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice (or a little less, your preference)
4 egg yolks (save egg whites)
1 cup pumpkin
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 + 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup melted butter
pecans (optional)

in a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. add yolks, pumpkin, vanilla, milk and melted butter. beat 4 egg whites until stiff peaks form, then fold into the batter. cook in a waffle iron according to your waffle iron's directions. top with butter, syrup, pecans and a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. enjoy!
