Gingerbread Waffles

I saw this on a recent 30-Minute Meals (I think it was the Holiday in a Hurry episode. I'm not at all a fan of pumpkin, but I tried this anyway, and I really LOVED it. There was also a mulled syrup that goes with this, I made my own version of that (with what I had on hand). She also made chicken/apple sausages that sounded fantastic, but Jimmy Dean was my buddy yesterday.

Gingerbread Waffles
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, eyeball it
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, plus some to butter the iron
Syrup, whipped cream or fresh fruits for topping, to pass at table

Preheat waffle iron.

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. In a medium bowl,
beat eggs and brown sugar until fluffy, then beat in pumpkin, milk, molasses and melted butter.
Stir the wet into dry until just moist. Do not overstir the waffle batter. Brush the iron with a
little melted butter and cook 4 waffles, 4 sections each. Serve with toppings of choice.
