1/2 to 3/4 can pumpkin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Dash each mace, cloves and grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon Mapleine (maple flavoring)

Prepare waffle mix according to package directions. Add in remaining ingredients. If mixture is too dry, add a splash of milk, half-n-half or whatever you use in your coffee.
