Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Paleo Pumpkin Bread Waffles from Elana's Pantry

So my oven has been broken for 3 weeks, YES, 3 WEEKS as in 21 DAYS. It is killing me. I am pining over all the great Fall foods like squash and casseroles  ......I am sitting here in a sling (see this post) with one good arm and no oven. What's a foodie to do?

I kept looking over the great Fall bread recipes like this one and this one....hoping the right parts will come in soon and my oven will be repaired. Then I had a stroke of inspiration. My son wanted waffles for breakfast so the waffle iron was sitting out....could I bake the bread batter in the waffle iron?

The answer is YES! and both recipes turned out fabulous waffles!

  1. Karen, what a great idea! I'm with you, I can not live without my oven...and I have two working arms! Hope you get better soon, and that in no time you oven is back to working in full swing!
