Vafler med gresskar – Pumpkin waffles

With Halloween coming up soon, I thought this would be a great addition for Waffle Wednesday! Last year I did this other pumpkin waffle recipe in case you’re interested in a option with more toppings!

Halloween isn’t really that popular in Norway, but it’s caught on a few places. For me personally my oldest daughter was born in the US, so we like to mix our Norwegian traditions with the American ones so she gets a bit of both her worlds.

As I have mentioned in previous waffle entries, please keep in mind that for Norwegian waffles, or Scandinavian waffles in general, you will need a heart waffle maker. The biggest difference here isn’t that they’re heart shaped, but they are also a lot thinner than the usual American/Belgian waffles.

So here the North American pumpkin meets the Scandinavian waffle! Enjoy these waffles either as a addition to your Halloween festivities, or just a tasty fall treat! 

Yield: 15 waffles
