Pumpkin Waffles

We have now entered the toddler dipping stage. Simon will eat a variety of things as long as he can dip it in something. These were a hit with or without the dipping syrup. (We don’t have a waffle maker, so I just made pancakes. I have never known what the difference is between pancake batter and waffle batter. I assume one is thicker, but I don’t know which.) Oh, and they’re pumpkin too — welcome, fall!
