8 waffles


  • 4 large eggs, separated

  • 1 pint buttermilk, shaken vigorously

  • 1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • cooking spray


  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.
