Even if you don\'t have a wafer iron (which looks a lot like a sandwhich toaster) the batter cooks just as well in a pancake pan.
To make wafers
5 cl cream
20 cl skim milk Ĺ
30 g butter
3 g salt
5 ounces of water or water of orange blossom
To make the Pumkin Wafers
500 g of wafer batter
1 slice of pumpkin
1 pinch allspice
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Prepare the wafer dough.....
Pour cream and half the milk in a saucepan, boil, pour into a bowl and let cool.
Cut the butter into small pieces.
Rinse the pan and pour the remaining milk in it. Add salt and boil. Pour in the flour while stirring then add the butter. Let dough dry for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a spatula.
Pour the mixture into a bowl. Incorporate the eggs one by one and then the cream and milk boiled. Then pour the water (or for sweet wafers, the orange blossom) and stir until absorbed.
Allow the wafer batter to cool.
Remove the bark and seeds of pumpkin. Cut the flesh into cubes. Put them in a saucepan, cover with water, salt and cook 10 minutes.
Drain the pumpkin and mix it with the allspice.
Add this puree into the wafer batter. Stir well.
Heat and lightly grease your wafer iron. Pour a small ladle of batter, cook the first wafer and so on.
Sprinkle each with Parmesan cheese waffle.
