  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.

I have been on a waffle kick all week. I tried gingerbread and apple cinnamon waffles, which were both good, before looking for a pumpkin recipe. This one is by far the best! I prepared the reci...

Family favorite! Whenever I’ve made it for friends, they too enjoy it immensely.

Nicely spiced. Smells and tastes great.

Made almost exact, but I have a large container of pumpkin pie spice that I wanted to get used up, so did 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. All the rest I kept the same. ...

Made recipe as written and was excellent! My kids and I thought it could use a little more sugar, so next time I would increase that to 1/2 cup. I always use whole wheat pastry flour (not the sa...

Very yummy and makes enough batter for six big Belgian waffles. Kids and adults alike are them up!

Turned out perfect, just like it's name! They are great with or without syrup, hot or not heated, as a delicious snack on the go!
