Pumpkin Waffles are a great fall breakfast. They are colorful and filled with warm fall spices. Waffles are easy to make and delicious. They are made with same ingredients as pancakes but a waffle maker creates an interesting shape. Fun and festive, they would make a perfect start to your Halloween or Thanksgiving .
You can serve these with maple syrup or try some chocolate glaze and sprinkles to give them a holiday theme.

Pumpkin WafflesPrint This
- 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice *see note
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup canola oil
In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin spice.
In a small bowl beat the eggs. Add the milk, pumpkin, and canola oil. Add to the dry ingredients and combine well.
Heat your waffle maker and spray both the top and bottom with cooking spray. Fill with batter. A four inch waffle maker will take three tablespoons. Cook until the waffles are golden and crisp, about two minutes for a four inch waffle. You may need to adjust cooking times based on the size of your waffle maker.
Serve with chocolate glaze, sprinkles and whipped cream.
If you do not have a pumpkin spice mix on hand, substitute it for 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon nutmeg and ½ teaspoon ground cloves.
