It’s officially pumpkin spice season and well who doesn’t love pumpkin? I actually know a few sad soles, but I digress.
However, If you are like me a love of all things pumpkin spice you’ll probably fall for these delicious pumpkin waffles.
Pumpkin Waffles for Autumn Brunch
My birthday was this past weekend and usually, I request a pumpkin pie. However this year I wanted something different and of course, you all know how I love brunch.
So, I went to the Internet to find the perfect autumn brunch dish, pumpkin waffles.
I created this recipe starting with a brown sugar waffle base and then added in pumpkin pie spice, a dash of pumpkin syrup and of course 1 can of pumpkin.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar or Splenda Brown Sugar Blends
- ¼ cup sugar or Splenda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 whole eggs, beaten
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups buttermilk, room temperature
- 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup
- Sift flour, sugars, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a large bowl.
- In another bowl lightly beat eggs. Then mix in buttermilk, butter and vanilla (pumpkin syrup).
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
- Using an electric mixer combine the wet and dry ingredients.
- Then mix in your your pumpkin puree
- Bake in preheated waffle iron, until golden brown.
- Serve with cool whip topping or maple syrup
Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup
These delicious pumpkin waffles call for 1 teaspoon of vanilla but if you can get a hold of Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Spice Coffe Syrup I suggest trying it instead.
While marketed as a coffee syrup I use it all the time in autumn baking as a substitute for vanilla to give my dish a little-added pumpkin spice flavoring. It also works great in frostings as well as homemade whipped topping.
It’s Like Eating a Pie
When ready to serve you can top these pumpkin waffles with your favorite maple syrup or as I like to do, a scoop of cool whip.
With the Cool Whip topping, it really does feel like you are eating a pumpkin pie with a crisp outside, it is so good.
Pumpkin pie can be a bit rich and not to mention, time-consuming to make especially if you make your own pie crust. However, these pumpkin waffles took no time to fix up and best of all you can freeze your extra waffles to eat later.
While it’s not exactly sugar-free, it still is one of my hubby’s favorite pumpkin dishes and he really isn’t into all that pumpkin spice craze.
Try it Yourself
I might be pumpkin bias but I really love these rich pumpkin waffles and hope that you have a go at making them for your next autumn brunch or upcoming holiday get together.
If you do make this recipe I’d love to hear in the comments below how they turned out.
