Perfect for any time of year, these waffles have an abundance of pumpkin flavor, a hint of pumpkin spice and are ready super fast!
Is there ANYTHING more delicious smelling than fresh waffles and a pot of coffee brewing? (No, the answer is “no”)
It’s official. We’re finally in FALL. The temperature has dropped below 100, and it’s ALMOST time that I can leave my lip balm in my car and have it remain intact. Living in Phoenix, these are the days we dream of all summer. Every single year, the husband and I decide FOR SURE we’re moving out of Phoenix because it’s just TOO HOT and we’re definitely moving to somewhere cooler.
And every Fall we change our minds, and remember why we live here.
Why you’ll love this recipe
With just 2 bowls these waffles come together before you can even get your waffle iron heated up! You literally mix up wet ingredients in one bowl, dry in another, then fold together. Pour into the waffle iron, and ta-da!! Breakfast is served! It’s a great recipe for a Sunday.
Why should the rest of the country have ALL the pumpkin spice fun? I mean, is that really fair? We may not be able to wear uggs, and it’s definitely not “cute boots” weather… but give me all the pumpkin things!
I make the full batch, and keep a few stored in the freezer for weekday mornings. A quick warm-up in the toaster and the smell wafts down the hallway… waking the husband and kids, and bringing them running! You can also heat them in a toaster oven if you wish.
What to serve with Waffles
- maple syrup
- melted butter
- whipped cream
- lots of coffee
The full list of ingredients and quantities is found in the printable recipe card below.
- Flour. Plain old all-purpose flour.
- Baking Powder & Baking Soda. These are what makes the waffles rise and be all fluffy and delicious.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice. Make your own, or grab it from the store
- Pumpkin Puree. This is pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix. You can, of course, make your own pumpkin puree, but canned is super convenient.
- Eggs. I use large eggs.
- Butter. I use salted butter.
- Brown Sugar. This is dark brown sugar, which is measured by packing it into the cup for accuracy.
- Milk. I use 2% but any milk of your choosing is just fine, even almond milk does well in this recipe.

Step 1 – Get prepped
Heat your waffle iron according to manufacturer.
Step 2 – Mix the dry ingredients
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
Step 3 – Mix the wet ingredients
In a medium bowl whisk together the pumpkin purée, eggs, butter, brown sugar and milk until well combined.
Step 4 – Combine wet and dry
Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet mixture. Mix together until JUST combine, being careful not to over mix.
Your mixture will be thick but pourable. If too thick add 1/3 cup extra milk.
Step 5 – Cook the waffles
Pour batter into waffle iron, and cook according to waffle iron directions (my Belgian waffle maker will take longer than a regular iron).
Remove from waffle iron, serve with butter and maple syrup.
