Pumpkin Waffles and Apple Cider Syrup

7 Comments

The minute the cooler weather arrives, I am trolling for pumpkin and apple recipes.   I found this recipe on Allrecipes and it’s so good!

The syrup is a little sweet for me so I think I would cut down on the sugar next time to maybe 1/4 cup since the cider is sweet already but otherwise I would keep everything the same. I made the syrup first and then made the waffles.

Waffles:

2 1/2 cups flour
