Why I Love This Recipe

Pumpkin has always been one of my favorite ingredients. Waffles are one of my favorite breakfasts. I wanted to create a recipe that showcased both!

The video link is of me making these waffles for a bed and breakfast at which I used to work.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 1/2 c unbleached all purpose flour, or a mix of whole wheat and all purpose flours
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
5 eggs, separated
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
2 c buttermilk
1 c Libby's solid pack pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c unsalted butter, melted and cooled


Preheat your waffle iron.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

Cream together egg yolks and brown sugar.

Mix in buttermilk, pumpkin, and vanilla extract until you achieve a lovely, velvety texture.

Stir in melted and cooled butter.

In clean bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg whites until they form soft peaks.

Combine dry ingredients with pumpkin mixture until just combined. Don't overmix!

Gently stir 1/4 of the egg whites into batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest of the whites.

Be careful not to deflate your beautiful egg whites!

Bake waffles in the waffle maker, according to your waffler's manufacturer's instructions.

Serve with butter, maple syrup, candied walnuts, ice cream, or anything you love!
