Lazy girl strikes again! She’s been hanging around here lots lately, right? I love that I can pass off my seasonal laziness onto a fictional character on my blog.
Moving on…I’ve dipped bread in custard with the intention of making French toast, and then pressed it in the waffle iron instead before. The Rum Raisin French Toast Waffles evidence exists. But this time, it’s all pumpkin. And cream.
These ‘waffles’ are softer than their rum-raisin cousins, most likely due to the pumpkin. And I’m all over that. I love a crispy waffle every now and then, but what I’m really looking for is a sponge for maple syrup. Lazy girl wants what she wants!
I feel like these ‘waffles’ come across way more impressive than they really are. I mixed the custard ingredients right in the pan for dipping, and heated up the waffle iron right next to it. Minimal dishes, minimal effort, maximum flavor. If you want to make it even easier, use 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice instead of all the spices listed. But, make sure your pumpkin pie spice has cloves in it–that’s what really drives the pumpkin pie flavor home. And if we’re not driving pumpkin pie flavor home, then where are we driving? Sorry, Lazy girl loves bad humor.
I like to use this breakfast as a stomach-stretcher before another latte. I’ve been making large batches of Jenna’s Chai for years, having one as soon as I wake up, and then having breakfast. On the weekends, my breakfast dessert is another latte. Everyone eats dessert after breakfast, right?
