Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles are such a guilty pleasure on a leisurely Sunday morning. While I was home in Maine two weekends ago we just couldn’t resist trying out this recipe and indulging in some weekend morning gluttony with ooey gooey pumpkin waffles – it’s like a version of Pumpkin Pie for breakfast, who doesn’t love that! These waffles are extremely light and fluffy with whipped egg whites and are wonderfully rich in spices, thanks to a blend of cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. Go ahead and dust off that waffle maker and give yourself a delicious Fall treat for breakfast this weekend! I promise they will be gobbled up as fast as you can pull them off the waffle maker.

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  2. 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  3. 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 3/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  7. 2 teaspoons ginger
  8. 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  9. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  10. 2 large eggs
  11. 1 cup whole milk
  12. 1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
  13. 4 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and warm
Instructions
  1. Lightly oil the waffle iron with vegetable oil (or non-stick spray such as Pam) and set it to the desired temperature.
  2. Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl. Whisk together to break apart the cornstarch. Add the remaining dry ingredients, and whisk to blend.
  3. Separate eggs: yolks go in a medium sized bowl and whites get set aside in a smaller bowl.
  4. Add pumpkin and milk to the egg yolks. Whisk to blend and set aside.
  5. Whip egg whites with a hand mixer on high until stiff peaks form – about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes. Set aside.
  6. Pour melted butter into the yolk/milk/pumpkin mixture. As you pour, whisk to combine.
  7. Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients, and mix them together until just combined. A little lumpiness is fine. That will smooth out when the egg whites are added.
  8. Slide the whipped egg whites out of the bowl and onto the mixture you just prepared. Gently fold them in until no white bits are obvious.
  9. Once the waffle iron is heated, you’re ready to pour the batter! Cook time is approximately 2 minutes 30 seconds; but each waffle maker may be a bit different and/or have it's own timer setting.
