How to make pumpkin waffles from scratch?
Whisk all dry ingredients together in bowl-1. Seperate eggs and beat egg whites into stiff peaks in bowl-2. Whisk egg yolks, melted butter, milk and pumpkin puree in bowl-3.
Stir bowl-3 ingredients into bowl-1 and then fold in the beaten egg whites. Make pumpkin waffle recipe as per manufactures instructions.
Tips and tricks:
Color – Cook waffles until they get a deep golden brown for GUARANTEED CRISPNESS! It took 6 to 7 minutes in my waffle iron.
Use light or golden brown sugar – Dark brown sugar will get the waffles a darker color before having a chance to crisp up. So, we highly recommend using light or golden brown sugar for the pumpkin waffle recipe.
Don’t over mix – As with all baking recipes, DO NO OVER MIX the batter.
Gently fold in egg whites – Be gentle while folding in the egg whites making sure not to deflate them.
Replace cinnamon and nutmeg with pumpkin spice
Milk – Whole milk if possible
Frozen Pumpkin Waffles
I usually make a double batch of this recipe, place cooled waffles in a ziplock bag and freeze for several weeks. My favorite way to re-heat them is to pop one or two waffles in a bread toaster, until hot and crisp. Great for weekday mornings!
Serve pumpkin Belgian waffles hot with a dab of softened SALTED butter and warm maple syrup (and some whipped cream will take it to a whole new level… just sayin)
It is absolutely ok to occasionally take a peak when the waffles are cooking. But, every time you open the iron, the steam tends to escape, resulting in a longer cooking time and not enough browning.
If your waffle iron has a non-stick surface, then it might not need to be greased. Otherwise, a coating a non-stick cooking spray is recommended before each use.
Generally, waffles take about 5 minutes (depends on the type of waffle iron and the heat setting). Belgian waffle take about a minute longer to crisp up.
