You might know by now our Five a Month challenge. Baking with 5 blogging friends, 5 ingredients and in the end 5 different recipes. Although it is only our second time, I have to say it was my favorite challenge so far 😀 Pumpkin, Cinnamon, cardamom, Honey and Pecan. Doesn’t that sound like the definition of autumn? I adore every single flavor of them and combined it is a full taste explosion! I had so many different ideas in mind: cake, cookies, pie. Endless possibilities and I don’t think that I can stop baking right now but I just have to try some of my other ideas as well soon.
But for now I will show you the recipe that I have finally decided on: Pumpkin Waffles with a Honey and Cinnamon Syrup. This weekend it’s my boyfriends birthday, so perfect to create a luxurious breakfast for the two of us! I enjoyed them with a Caramel Latte Macchiato, such a treat!
I baked the waffles in the oven using a silicon waffle form but you can use a waffle iron if you have one or you could even bake some pancakes! Roast the nuts in a dry pan and add on top of the waffles and pour the delicious and sweet honey cinnamon on top! The waffles underneath were by far the best, as they were completely soaked up with the syrup. So good! I hope you will enjoy them as well 🙂
Have a look at the recipes of my fellow baking bloggers Carina, Julia, Tanja and Laura, they have come up with some amazing recipes! For the next month we have already agreed on the following ingredients:
I am already quite excited about the next time and I got several ideas about what to bake… What would you bake?
- 50g Butter, soft
- 50g Soft Brown Sugar
- 3 Eggs
- 200g Pumpkin Puree
- 3 Tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Cardamon
- 1 Tsp Nutmeg
- A Pinch of Sal
- 250 ml Milk
- 300 g Flour
- A handful of Pecan Nuts
- 50g Butter
- 150g Honey
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- Cream the butter until soft, than add the brown sugar and mix until fluffy
- Add the eggs one by one and mix well after each addition
- Add the Pumpkin Puree and mix until everything is well incorporated
- Sift together all the dry ingredients and add them to the wet ingredients alternatively with the milk until you get a smooth batter.
- The batter will be quite thick, so spread it evenly in your waffle baking tin and bake for 12-15 minutes at 220°C (200°C Fan) or use in your waffle iron or make some pancakes!
- Roast some pecan nuts in a dry pan until fragrant. Add them on top of the waffles.
- Melt together the butter, honey and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Let cool slightly and pour over the waffles
