My recipe has slipped a spot in Google’s rankings for “pumpkin waffles“, to #8, which is B.S. cause some terrible recipes with no photos are ranked higher. I think the fact that some recipe pages have been around since the internet’s inception are the only reason they do well . . . that and some of the recipes are on major sites that get a lot of traffic that’s then “associated” with the recipe page. If only Google’s bots really ranked according the value of the content!


Now that the recipe has been re-perfected, I’m taking a little hiatus from tweaking the recipe. I’m casually studying other waffle recipes, in general, seeing if I can learn any tricks that could be incorporated into my ingredients or directions. We’ll see.

I’ve also been dealing with some health issues this week, which have curtailed my blog postings . . . but I’m trying to get back on track. It’s been a rough week, friends.

I baked my waffles this morning, and took a few shots. It was dawn on a cloudy day, so the shot is a little less vibrant than my usual. Still, I thought it was a very pretty, natural looking depiction of my waffles in the wee hours of the morning…

As I “surf the interweb”, there are many fine waffle blog entries I come across.  I thought I’d share a few . . .

Clean Eating Breakfast Waffles from The Gracious Pantry

Friday Morning Waffles from Taste Is Trump

Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles from Week of Menus

Cornstarch Waffles from Cooking Stuff

Glazed Banana Waffles from Spork or Foon

Vanilla Bean Waffles from My Baking Addiction

Blackberry Sour Cream Waffles from Coconut & Lime

Waffled French Toast from Dinner with Julie

I only wish I could do a waffle exchange with each of these bakers!

I just had to share a photo of the waffles I have cooling right now. Why am I cooling them before eating them? Here’s the posting that explains it.

I was just on Google, and I came across this AWESOME site called Pumpkin Passion. Not only is it a beautiful site, but they have excellent photos, news and updates on all-things-pumpkin.  You can even buy Pumpkin Passion paraphernalia.

I couldn’t find a link to contact the author of the site, but I was hoping they’d check me out and give me a little mention on their blog. After all, the guy with a blog that’s only about pumpkin waffles certainly has a pumpkin passion that needs to be shared 🙂

Check their site out. It’s very cool.

This article is totally crazy, but it’s so awesome – Waffles of Many Flours & Meals. It’s from a Washington Post columnist who was exploring how best to use all the flours/grains she had on hand in her house. SeriousEats.com hails it as “the best 15-ingredient waffle recipe”. I have yet to make them, but it would be fun to give them a try.

Of course, there’s little to no point to make a 15-ingredient waffle, unless you’re going for an esoteric baking exercise.  Granted, my recipe has 13 ingredients, but that’s just because it has a bunch of spices; it’s not complex for the sake of complexity. In fact, I recently cut out baking soda and buttermilk from the ingredients because I found they were unnecessary.
