Spiced Pumpkin Waffles

We are waffle people! I wanted to make something with pumpkin for this holiday season and I thought what better way then to make pumpkin waffles. I have a little secret, I don't like pumpkin nor sweet potatoes (I know, I know) but I make things with them for my family cause they love it. My youngest told me that it smelt like pie and what's better than pie.

These spiced pumpkin waffles simply put taste like fall!
Spiced Pumpkin Waffles
makes 12 waffles

For the Pumpkin Pie Spice
recipe via
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons ginger
3/4 teaspoons allspice
3/4 teaspoons cloves
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Combine all spices in a bowl, mix well. Store in an air tight container.

For the Pumpkin Waffles
recipe adapted from Epicurious
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (see recipe above)
4 large eggs, separated
2 cups whole milk
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin or pumpkin purée
3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
cooking spray for waffle iron

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and preheat waffle iron. Sift together dry ingredients. Whisk egg yolks in a large bowl with the milk, pumpkin and butter until smooth. Whisk yolk mixture into dry ingredients just until combined. If you put a slightly damp towel under the bowl, the bowl won't turn as you whisk.

Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk the egg whites until they hold a soft peak. Gently fold into waffle mixture. Spoon batter into waffle iron that has been sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Cook according to manufactures directions. Transfer waffles to oven rack to keep warm and crisp.

Top with warm maple syrup or sauteed apples in butter and brown sugar, sprinkled with chopped pecans! Enjoy!
