Pumpkin Waffles

I can still recall the first time I had pumpkin waffles.

It was in the Autumn of 2008 on an early Sunday morning at my friend Jessica's house.  I'm pretty sure all she had done was add some pumpkin and spices to a generic waffle mix, but the fact that I was eating pumpkin in a waffle was amazing!

I knew this had to become a part of my life, and it since has.

I don't exactly stick pumpkin in any ordinary waffle mix, but I think these beauties have the perfect balance of pumpkin, spice, and a nice firm texture, that make them absolutely divine for a chilly fall morning (or evening, if you like having breakfast for dinner!).

Pumpkin Waffles


2 1/2 c. flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c. brown sugar
4 eggs (separated)
1 c. pumpkin puree
2 c. milk
1/4 c. melted butter


Preheat waffle iron.

In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, spices, salt, and sugar together.

In a medium bowl, mix milk, pumpkin, and egg yolks together.  Add to flour mixture, and then stir in melted butter and mix until uniform.

In a small bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.  Fold into the batter, and place desired amount on the hot waffle iron.
