Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Spicy Pecans


We love seasonal food. Seasonal Soups, baking, and of course, waffles. With pumpkins being the center of attention these days, we can’t stop thinking about them. Doesn’t everybody have pumpkins on their mind? Every grocery or nursery you go into has mounds of pumpkins, in all shapes and sizes.

We make pumpkin the center of attention with these sweet, fluffy, crispy pumpkin spice waffles! The butter, and maple syrup will

Do y’all remember when it was a “thing” to find the most perfect, round pumpkin in the patch? Not anymore! The “uglier” the better! We love all the colors of pumpkins out there that are more readily available. And the uglier, the longer those gourds last! We have had some last till Christmas! We gotta admit, though, when the boys are home for Thanksgiving, we love having them see how far they can throw the pumpkins into the woods, and if they can break them open, so the seeds come out! We then throw some dirt over them, so that we get a few surprise Cinderellas the next Summer!


Save those pretty little pumpkins to decorate with, and pick up a few cans of pumpkin puree….you know you will use them!! Pumpkin pie season is right around the corner!

  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  3. Gently fold in pumpkin puree into wet ingredients
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until nearly smooth; a few small lumps may remain-do not over mix.
  5. Set oven to 200 degrees, to keep waffles warm as you make them.
  6. Spray your waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray before preheating it.
  7.  For an 8″ round waffle iron, use about 1/3 cup batter;
  8. Reduce heat to lowest and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the iron stops steaming or light goes off.
  9. Open and check waffles, they will be light brown and still soft to touch
  10. Give waffles the 2nd round to crisp, checking after 1, and then 2 minutes, to not over-brown!
  11. If making for a crowd, keep warm on a wire rack in a pan in the oven.
  12. Serve with butter, warm maple syrup and top with whole spicy pecans. Enjoy!

    Made this one, sans pecans due to an allergy in the family, and it was amazing! Perfect fall breakfast! Can only imagine what those sweet pecans would add, I’m sure it would be incredible!
