  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.

These waffles were delicious! Fluffy inside, and a little bit crispy on the outside. We didn't have the individual spices, so used 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead.

These were good but they didn't knock me over with their pumpkin flavor. I used 1T pumpkin pie spice instead of the other spices. I'll try to stick to the recipe next time. Very light and fluffy!

I followed the recipe as posted and these were a wonderful! Will make another patch to freeze for the upcoming busy holiday season. Very delicious.

These were so good! I'll definitely make them again.

These are some of the best waffles I’ve ever eaten, both fresh from the waffle iron and fresh from the toaster with a bit of warm syrup. Thanks for sharing this recipe of these wonderful waffles.

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