Pumpkin Waffles

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs room temperature, separated
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • pure maple syrup for serving

Pumpkin Waffles

  • Separate your eggs into 2 different bowls. Add 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat them using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients with a spoon. Add the egg yolks, vanilla, melted butter, pumpkin and buttermilk and combine. Gently fold in the whipped egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  • Cook the waffles in your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve with warm maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon.


Heat your oven to about 200 degrees F to keep waffles warm while you cook the rest. Place them on a half sheet pan lined with parchment paper or in a ceramic baking dish.
