Pumpkin Waffles

Posted on July 11, 2011


Pumpkin waffles
were a great treat this morning. I found that I like these waffles still a
little bit doughy, because it really brought out the right texture for the
pumpkin puree. These would go great with an egg on top and with a cup of coffee.
These were eaten very fast by every member in my family. The prep time took a
little bit longer than I had originally expected, but it was so worth it. Also,
I suggest making the full bath and using the entire can of pumpkin puree. I
halved the recipe and now i have half a can of pumpkin puree in my fridge and
I’m not sure what I want to do with it.

1 teaspoon ground
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 large eggs, separated
2 cups
well-shaken buttermilk
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
3/4 stick (6
tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
Vegetable oil for brushing waffle iron
or cooking spray

Preheat waffle iron.

Sift brown
sugar, flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Whisk egg yolks in a large bowl with buttermilk, pumpkin, and melted butter

electric mixer, whisk egg whites until white peaks form. Fold them gently in
