These delicious aromatic pumpkin waffles are perfect for breakfast or brunch. You could even serve this with vanilla ice cream for dessert. I made these for Thanksgiving breakfast and topped them with chopped walnuts and homemade chantilly cream. My kids really loved them!

I use a Chef’s Choice 840 Heart Waffle Maker to make the the thin Waffle House style waffles.

If you’re using a Belgian waffle maker, this recipe makes 4 Belgian waffles.

Spiced Pumpkin Waffles

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 20 minutes
  • Serves: 8 Waffles



  • 1 ¼ Cup All Purpose Flour, Pastry Flour works great if you have it
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 3 ½ Teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Purée
  • 4 Tablespoons Melted Unsalted Butter
  • Maple Syrup


  • Chopped Pecans or Walnuts
  • Whipped Cream


  • 1)

    Turn on your waffle maker and set it to the desired temperature. Pre-heat your standard oven at 200 F.

  • 2)

    Combine all the dry ingredients. In a large bowl add brown sugar, cornstarch, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice and mix well with a whisk.

  • 3)

    Separate the egg yolks and egg whites

  • 4)

    Whip the egg whites with a hand mixer or stand mixer on high until stiff peaks form (it will look like whipped cream) and set aside for the last step. You can skip this step if you want to save time, whipping the egg whites makes the waffles fluffier.

  • 5)

    Combine all the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, add the egg yolks, milk, pumpkin purée and melted butter. Mix well with a whisk until everything is combined.

  • 6)

    Add the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients and mix them together until just combined, little lumps are fine, the mixture will smooth out when the egg whites are added.

  • 7)

    Add the egg whites to the mixture and gently fold until the egg whites are combined well into the mixture.

  • 8)

    Pour the appropriate amount of batter needed for your waffle maker. Leave it in long enough to cook or the waffle will separate when opening the maker. Keep them warm in a 200 degrees oven directly on the rack while making the rest of the waffles, the waffles will crisp up a little bit after being in the oven.

  • 9)

    Serve with maple syrup and enjoy! You can also top with walnuts, pecans or whipped cream if you prefer.
