  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 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 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...

Best Waffles. Perfect for the fall

I substituted 3teaspoons pumpkin spice for the other spices, but should have added a bit more. Such fluffy waffles and lots of leftovers which we love.
