Pumpkin Waffles

The only thing better than pumpkin for dessert is pumpkin for breakfast! I make these almost every weekend in November but they make a yummy addition to the breakfast table any time of year.
I like to top these waffles with butter and maple syrup. My husband likes them with sweet cinnamon cream cheese. We even enjoyed them with fried apples and whipped cream during one particularly decadent brunch!

Pumpkin Waffles

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup canned pumpkin
6 tablespoons butter, melted

Pre-heat waffle iron. Sift together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder salt, and spices. Beat eggs in a large bowl and whisk in milk, pumpkin, and butter. Add dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray or brush with melted butter and spoon batter into waffle iron. Cook according to instructions for your specific waffle iron. Repeat using all batter. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Hi

This recipe has an awful lot of eggs in it, do they come out tasting eggy.

No, they don't taste eggy but I have actually made them with 3 eggs before and quite honestly didn't notice any difference in taste or texture. You can certainly reduce the eggs to 3 instead 4. I've also seperated the eggs when making these for a lighter texture. I mixed the yolk as normal and whipped the whites until stiff before folding them into the rest of the batter. The result is a little fluffier waffle that's perfect for a Belgian waffle maker (as opposed to a standard, thinner waffle maker).

One additional thing I've realized since first posting this recipe is they do typically need a little extra time in the waffle iron than a typical waffle (due to their density).

Thanks for your question, it's always fun to revisit recipes!
