PUMPKIN WAFFLES with Apple Cider Syrup 

(Makes 6 servings)

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder                               
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups milk
4 eggs, separated
1/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, salt, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin, milk, and egg yolks. Whip the egg whites in a clean dry bowl until soft peaks form.
  3. Stir the flour mixture and 1/4 cup melted butter to the pumpkin mixture, stirring just to combine. Use a whisk or rubber spatula to fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the batter, stirring gently until incorporated. Fold in the remaining egg whites. Cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. To make the syrup, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Stir in the apple cider and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until mixture begins to boil; boil until the syrup thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the 2 tablespoons of butter until melted. Serve warm.                ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
  5. Now that I've gotten your attention....
     Thanks for visiting me on this Halloween Blog Hop!  This is my favorite holiday...although every year it seems to be a little rushed. 

 I have several titles centering around spooky themes..."A Wanted Man" is a M/M zombie apocalypse story.  "Star Mates" is a M/F abduction story.  "Otherworldly" is about a woman who can see murdered souls.  And of course, there's the fabulous "Sex, Love & Aliens" from Beachwalk Press! <<<Don't forget the FREE prequel to my story in this anthology, Niah, available HERE>>>

I'm happy to give away any of my titles to one lucky winner (winner's choice)...all you have to do is leave a comment & a way to contact you!  (I promise not to spam you, I just don't have the time to track you down).  Plus!...a fabulous Las Vegas/Halloween care package (photo coming soon!).
