Why You’ll Love This Recipe
Who doesn’t love a good waffle? And if you’ve never had a pumpkin flavored waffle before, it’s time to change that, you may never want regular waffles again!
This easy pumpkin waffles recipe is one of those delicious recipes you’ll want to hang on to, as we’re using a store bought mix as the base.
Here’s a few good reasons to cook up some homemade waffles!
- Store-bought pancake and waffle mix is an easy shortcut for these waffles.
- There’s plenty of other good stuff in these..melted butter, pumpkin, warm spices, vanilla.
- A fun recipe to make when you feel like pulling out the ol’ waffle iron. This recipe is great for Belgian waffles too.
- There’s big, pumpkin-y flavor in these waffles, and they’re scrumptious served hot with butter and pure maple syrup.
Ingredients You’ll Need
For the full recipe and list of ingredients for these pumpkin spice waffles, please scroll down to the recipe card below.
- Pancake and Baking Mix: I like to use Bisquick for this recipe, which is easy to find in grocery stores and makes a nice, fluffy waffle.
- Pumpkin Puree: Not the pie mix, use real pumpkin puree.
- Milk: Regular or any plant-based variety.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: Is preferred, but ground cinnamon will give you lots of flavor too.
- Sugar: Just a tiny amount of regular or brown sugar to the dry ingredients.
- Vanilla: Pure vanilla extract for big flavor and sweetness.
- Egg: To hold everything together.
- Melted Butter: For those crispy waffle edges.
Step-By Step Instructions
- Start by whisking the pancake and baking mix together with the pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon).
- Add in the wet ingredients – butter, egg, milk, pumpkin, vanilla and egg. Mix together. It will be lumpy, that’s okay.
- Spray the inside of your waffle maker with a little non-stick baking spray, then pour batter in and cook the waffles til crispy-edged (about 5-7 minutes, depending on your waffle maker).
4. Keep the waffles warm if needed on a cooling rack. Place the rack on a large baking sheet in a 200 degree oven, or serve them right as they come out of the waffle maker.
This recipe makes about twelve 4″ waffles.
Tips for Success
- These waffles are wonderful just as they are with butter and warmed pure maple syrup or other favorite toppings.
- Wrap them well in parchment paper and place in freezer-safe bags and freeze for up to 60 days. Reheat in a toaster oven or regular toaster for a minute or two and they’re ready to eat.
- These are great the very next day...just refrigerate overnight and pop in the toaster for a minute or two and enjoy.
- I use the highest setting on my Cusinart waffle maker, these cook for about 7 minutes for crispy edged, lightly browned waffles.
- Keep the pumpkin waffles warm in a 200 degree oven on a wire rack that sitting on a baking sheet if you’re making a batch to serve all at once.
- I love these pumpkin waffles with store-bought candied pecans, or you can make your own candied nuts like in this recipe.
- Add nut butters like cashew or almond butter to the top of the waffles for more substance, add berries too, if you’d like.
- Warmed Maple Syrup & butter is a classic combo too. Make a veggie-packed egg dish to go with it, some crispy bacon and hot coffee.
- Try it as a dessert waffle with vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream with warmed salted caramel sauce.
