Pumpkin Ale Waffles

Oh delicious pumpkin beer. It's one of my favorite things about the fall and winter seasons.

Really I am a lover of all beer, with IPA's being my absolute. But pumpkin beer is a nice change of pace during the short months that it is around.

Pumpkin Ale Waffles

I've always loved cooking with beer, but currently lack the skills or knowledge of different ways to incorporate it more into my cooking than just adding it to some soup or slow cooking some meat with it.

However, I'm slowly learning more and more tricks of the trade thanks to the beautiful Beeroness, Jackie Dodd. This woman is a genius and someone I look up to in the blogging, cooking, and beer world. She is amazing and all of her recipes have beer in them! Seriously, best thing ever!

Pumpkin Ale Waffles

So when I saw a picture of her beer waffles on pinterest, I knew I had to give them a try. Beer for breakfast? Why not?

I originally made these on a Monday morning. Clearly trying to set the tone to have a good week. Though I can't remember if it actually turned out to be a good week or not? Though I'm sure that it did because it involved these waffles and beer on a Monday morning. A combination you cannot go wrong with.

  1. I’ve not seen pumpkin beer in Australia but my husband did come home with some Mango Beer last week which I thought was a bit random so maybe we do have it here after all – I’m on the hunt. These waffles look amazing thanks so much for linking up to YWF

    1. They were absolutely delish! If you can’t find pumpkin beer… I’m sure you could get away with just using a regular ale or lager in place. Since the recipe has pumpkin puree in it, you’ll still have the pumpkin flavor.

  2. Never heard of pumpkin beer in my life! It sounds amazing! Your photos are stunning!

    1. I love my waffle iron! My mom got it for me off of Groupon about 3-4 years ago. I think the brand is Chefman and they have terrible reviews on Amazon but mine has worked perfectly without any issues. It’s not a true belgian waffle maker, though they look similar, so I’m looking to upgrade soon to a true belgian one but hesitant since mine works fine.
