  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  3. Beat egg yolks, buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter together with a whisk in a large bowl until smooth; add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, salt, and cloves. Stir the mixture with the whisk just until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Fold the egg whites into the batter just until combined.
  5. Prepare cooking surfaces of your waffle iron with cooking spray. Ladle about 2/3 cup batter into the prepared iron and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes.


  • Editor's Note:
  • Waffle irons come in many varieties. Consult the manufacturer directions for best guidance on batter amounts and cooking times.

These are sooo good! I used a regular waffle iron (not Belgian), and the pancakes came out perfect--nice and fluffy. I've never whipped eggs in order to make waffle batter but it works and made ...

These waffles were delicious! Fluffy inside, and a little bit crispy on the outside. We didn't have the individual spices, so used 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead.

I have been on a waffle kick all week. I tried gingerbread and apple cinnamon waffles, which were both good, before looking for a pumpkin recipe. This one is by far the best! I prepared the reci...

These were good but they didn't knock me over with their pumpkin flavor. I used 1T pumpkin pie spice instead of the other spices. I'll try to stick to the recipe next time. Very light and fluffy!

These are delicious! The batter is reasonably thick, so we never quite got round waffles, but that doesn't take away from the taste. Very fluffy, if you're looking for crisp on the outside, you ...

I made this because had a cup of leftover mashed sweet potato. I used that instead of the pumpkin. It was good. Not really sure what benefit I got from separating an beating the egg whites. ...

Soooo good during the holidays. Freeze and reheat well. Make a bunch then freeze for easy breakfasts! Just throw 'em in the toaster.

The first batch was so-so but continued to get better as we went along. Next time we are definitely using some pumpkin pie spice as they overall tasted like bland pumpkin pie.

These are really good. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfectly.
