Cinderella’s Pumpkin Waffles

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1-1/4 cups low-fat milk

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the waffle maker according to its directions.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.  Lightly whisk, or stir, to mix it well.  You may need to crumble any bits of brown sugar with your fingers to be sure there are no lumps.  Then whisk it again.

Combine the egg, milk, pumpkin, and oil in a small bowl.  Whisk, or stir, to mix them well.

Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture.  Stir it gently until it forms a smooth batter.

Spray both sides of the waffle maker lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

Use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to pour a heaping amount of the batter onto the grids.  Scrape out the inside of the cup with a soup spoon (this if fairly thick batter).  Use the spoon to spread the batter to the edges of the grids.  Close the top, and cook for about 4 minutes (some waffle makers have a light that tells you when they’re done), or until the waffle is set and the top opens easily.  Use a fork to remove the waffle.
