How to make pumpkin waffles from scratch

  • Preheat the waffle iron.
  • First mix dry ingredients: In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Next, mix wet ingredients: In another large mixing bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Add oil and pumpkin puree, whisk again until batter is thick and smooth. Stir in the milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Then, combine wet and dry ingredients: Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet mixture.
  • Mix the batter: Stir gently until just moistened and combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Cook waffles: Pour the batter into the waffle iron and cook according to waffle iron directions until nicely golden brown. Finally, top with your favorite toppings and enjoy.

Tips and Substitutes

  • Store the leftover waffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They’ll be good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. reheat just before serving.
  • For freezing, stack up the waffles between 2 layers of waxed paper, place in an airtight container, and freeze. You can freeze the waffles for up to 3 months.
  • Prior to eating just defrost, reheat into the toaster.
  • Use gluten-free flour or oat flour in place of wheat flour.
  • We used Maple Syrup, but you may also use honey.
  • Coconut oil preferred but other neutral-tasting oils will work.

How long does it take to cook a waffle in the waffle maker?

Every waffle maker will vary in the amount of time needed for the waffles to fully cook. It should not take longer than 5 minutes at the most. It is best to check for the indictor light to turn off or change color to know that your waffles are ready.

Why are my my waffles sticking to the iron?

If your waffles are sticking it could be one of many reasons why this is happening. Is your waffle maker non stick? if not then you need to add non stick spray. Also, another reason is that your waffle mix doesn’t have enough eggs or oil which causes it to stick.

Do you need to spray a waffle iron?

If your waffle maker is non-stick, you do not need to spray it. The oil added to the batter along with the eggs will act as a binding agent and wont let the waffle get stuck to your waffle maker. Using PAM spray will only cause a a buildup and gets tacky.
