Pumpkin Waffles: The Perfect Holiday Breakfast Treat


Pumpkin Waffles

This is the Pumpkin Waffle recipe that my wife's family has used for decades.


2 1/2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground  nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup brown sugar

4 eggs

2 cups buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup pumpkin (I ALWAYS use Libbys brand and NEVER a knock off)


2 large bowls

wooden spoon

waffle iron

In a large bowl, mix together 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/2 cup brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, mix 4 eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 cup melted butter.

Now mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Don't over-mix and let batter sit for 10 minutes before using.

Now cook your waffles in a waffle iron. Remember to spray it with non-stick spray.

I usually top my Pumpkin Waffles with homemade buttermilk syrup. (Click on the link below for that recipe.) You can also top it with peaches, maple syrup and whipped cream. Eat and enjoy.
