Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Spicy Pecans

  • Author: The Perks of Being Us


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 11/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup fresh or canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Sweet and spicy pecans


  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!
