When it comes to easy breakfast recipes, it doesn’t get much easier than this. Sliced King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread is turned into waffle squares and topped with a creamy Pumpkin Pie Syrup for a simple breakfast everyone will love!
I mean, those frozen waffles? We all know that those are about as easy as things get in the morning, right? Well, dare I say this is even easier.
You see, I “waffled” King’s Hawaiian Sweet Sliced Bread. Have you seen their sliced bread? It is so great by itself, but let me tell you… it is so, so, so good as little waffle squares!
I basically put a slice at a time of the sweet bread onto my waffle iron, closed it for a couple minutes, and out came these sweet little slightly crispy waffles, ready for eating or dipping in syrup. I’d say that definitely falls under the category of “easy breakfast recipes”, wouldn’t you?
Speaking of syrup, l must tell you a little about this Pumpkin Pie Syrup we dipped our King’s Hawaiian Waffles in. This Creamy Pumpkin Pie Syrup is my 3rd variation of a favorite syrup recipe given to me by Chef Brad from Thermador. His Creamy Buttermilk Syrup recipe is one of my favorite creations, ever! I also love the Creamy Chocolate Syrup I made as well as the amazing Eggnog Syrup. Since I wanted to create something a little more seasonal, I decided I need a pumpkin syrup in my repertoire. Between the crispy sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian Waffles and the seasonal warmth of this Creamy Pumpkin Syrup, I knew I had a breakfast winner!
With Halloween right around the corner and the holidays quickly approaching, easy breakfast recipes like this one are going to be my saving grace. I feel like if I can get breakfast started off on the right foot, I can do anything I set my mind to 🙂

King’s Hawaiian Waffles with Pumpkin Syrup
For the waffles:
- 1 package King's Hawaiian Sliced Sweet Bread
For the pumpkin syrup:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
For the waffles:
Heat a waffle iron to medium heat.
Place one slice of bread at a time onto the waffle iron and close tight. Heat for 60-90 seconds, or until bread is slightly crisp and toasted.
For the syrup:
Place the butter, milk, pumpkin puree and sugar into a large saucepan. Whisk together and bring to a boil stirring continuously. Once boiling, remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and soda. It will foam up and is now ready to serve over waffles (or in coffee).
Syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
