Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles

So, while grocery shopping the other day, I thought it would be a good idea to pick up a couple cans of pumpkin puree to have on hand, as it is getting to be that time of the year where pumpkin everything is all the rage.  Of course, when I got home and put the cans of pumpkin in the pantry, I then found out that this wasn’t the first time I’d had the idea of picking up some pumpkin…I now had 6 cans of pumpkin.

Sounds like it’s time to start baking with some pumpkin!

Figured breakfast would be a good way of starting with some pumpkin, so I dug out my waffle iron and did some quick research on pumpkin waffles.  Most recipes were pretty basic, with varying amounts of the spices you’d put in a pumpkin-related baking item.

I was worried that the added pumpkin would make the waffles thick and dense, but they cooked up light and fluffy.  These waffles were pretty popular at breakfast, disappearing even before the bacon was gone, which in this house, is pretty rare indeed!

Pumpkin Waffles

2 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
4 eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup buttermilk (see note below)
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
6 tbsp butter, melted

  • Place a baking sheet in the middle rack of the oven and preheat oven to 250° ; preheat waffle iron.
  • Sift together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, and spices.
  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl until blended, then whisk in milk, buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter until smooth. Whisk in dry ingredients just until smooth.
  • Bake waffles according to waffle iron manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Place baked waffles on preheated baking sheet to keep warm and crisp.


  • If you don’t have buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of milk and let is sit for 5 minutes (this is what I actually used)

When all else fails, you can always call your favorite shop and ask
what pizza deals they are offering. Just try imagining a
car with a Dominos sign placed on its roof gunning it
through red lights, probably not the kind of advertisement the company had been looking for.
Their style of toppings is what makes the
pizzas delicious.

When you choose the right compressor, your job is made
considerably easier, thereby making the difference between a job being difficult
and a job being made easier. Will you be moving around, or are you
going to stay put. There are also many different handheld mechanical tools which are used
in plenty of jobs and on plenty of job sites regularly.
