pumpkin waffles

more breakfast... these are delicious.  So, so good (Mary's buttermilk syrup recipe reminded me of them)  My roommate Becca used to make them:

Becca's Super Famous & Delicious Pumpkin Waffles
(Actually, it is my Aunt Jenny's recipe, but let's not get technical.)
The Waffle Part:
Combine these dry ingredients... 2 cups flour
2 T Baking Powder
1 T Cinnamon
1 T sugar
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. coriander
1/4 t. salt
Next, separate 4 eggs and beat the whites.
To the yolks add...
1 and 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup margarine or butter (melted)
1 T. vanilla
Now, mix the wet and dry ingredients and then fold in the egg whites.
Then, cook the stuff. On a greased waffle iron.

Most Delicious Buttermilk Syrup Part:
(a must have)
Bring the following to a boil...
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cube margarine or butter (but butter is better)
1 cup sugar
1 t. Karo syrup
Once that boils, turn it town to LOW heat and add...
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
WARNING: When you add the baking soda the syrup will grow about 10 times its normal size! I am not kidding. Remember baking soda volcanoes as kids? Yeah, that is what will happen to your syrup if you don't make it in a REALLY big pot. It will make a big mess all over and you will hate yourself for not heeding my warning.
Oh, and I hardly ever use the coriander in the waffles because I usually don't have it. It is optional.
