The Story of the Dash Mini Pumpkin Waffle Maker
Who remembers a few years ago when the Dash Mini Pumpkin Waffle Makers were a huge hit among Insta moms of littles? You saw the cute pumpkin-shaped waffles floating around Instagram like nobody’s business and boy did everybody want one. I’ve always wanted a Mini Dash waffle maker – for no other reason than that it made cute waffles in the Fall. Target was the place to grab them for less than $10. But as quickly as Fall came, so did they quickly disappear from Target.
About 2 years ago, as soon as late August/early September hit, guess what this mom did? Yep, you guessed it. I ventured out to Target and got one. One didn’t seem enough. And what if said one didn’t work and now they went out of stock? Oh how my wanna-make world would be so crushed! Ha! I though of getting two just in case and they did look so cute. two just made sense. I stuck to the one – because moms, I didn’t want to be greedy. and I wanted to save some one you! And of course, I had to flash it on Instagram too:)
Now I own several little Dash Mini Waffles Makers, including my new additions from Home Goods this year – the Spiderweb and the Skeleton! I grabbed them as soon as I spotted them in Home Goods at the end of August, I believe it was. So much fun!
Making Cute Fall-Shaped Waffles for Your Kiddos
The Dash minis deliver cute waffles. Note that one side will look like a pancake and the other the waffle prints. But they are too cute. I only have one kiddo who will eat a Pumpkin Waffle. Last year, I froze extras to re-heat when needed. Now this year, not much has been made or eaten. But I do have a bunch in the fridge for when we’re ready.
How to Make Homemade Pumpkin WAFFLES
- 2 cups flour (I used 1 & 1/2 all-purpose & 1/2whole wheat)
- 1 TBSP baking powder
- 2 tsp Pumpkin Spice Mix
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1-1/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
- 2 eggs (brown or white)
- 1 TBSP honey or agave nectar
- Waffle Iron (I used the Dash Mini Pumpkin Waffle Maker but use any Waffle maker you desire)
- Heat waffle maker until hot and ready.
- Combine the dry ingredients in bowl. Set aside.
- In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
- Mix in dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Do not overmix.
- Spray waffle maker with cooking spray.
- Cook waffles on hot griddle until done.
- Place them on a tray and cover to keep warm while you make the rest.
- Serve warm with toppings of choice.
Note: These waffles are freezable. Place individual waffles between parchment paper, wrap well, then place them in a covered freezer bowl or Ziplock freezer bag. When ready to use, toast in a toaster or place them on a baking sheet and heat in a 400 degree oven about 6-7 minutes or until warm and crisp.
