Pumpkin Waffles... is it comparable to True Belgian Waffles?? You judge ...

I still have some pumpkin left and I decided to do something different. Pumpkin Waffles, yes, that’s right. However, I chanced upon a waffle recipe from Taste of Home which have in fact captivated me instantly. I have wanted to try it immediately. It’s True Belgian Waffles, but what about my pumpkin puree??? ... Eh..., I can actually add pumpkin puree to this recipe, right? However, I have no idea how a True Belgian Waffles really taste like; without the addition of pumpkin. So, is there anyone who have tried this True Belgian Waffles without any modification? Anyway, I will do this waffles again without the pumpkin puree and will update you all on this.
Overall, I can tell you, this pumpkin waffles is really very very yummylicious and my girls and hubby giving all thumbs up for this. They prefer this pumpkin waffles to the normal waffles version which hubby used to make for us.  Hubby enjoys making pancakes and waffles for us on weekends and holidays and usually we would wake up to the sweet aroma of his bakes feeling so blessed and loved :)  Now hubby wants to bake this version instead of his usual ones, hahaha...

Recipe source : Taste of Home (with some minor modification in red)
Ingredients :
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar (I used ½ cup)
- 3.5 teaspoons baking powder (I used 1 tsp double acting baking powder)
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1.5 cup pumpkin puree (steamed and slightly blended)
- 1.5 cups milk
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract (I omitted)
- Sliced fresh strawberries or syrup, honey


Yield : 14 mini waffles
Directions :
1) In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder.
2) In another bowl, lightly beat egg yolks.
3) Add pumpkin puree, milk and butter; mix well.
4) Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.
5) Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
6) Grease preheated waffle iron with butter and bake according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown.
7) Serve with strawberries, maple syrup or honey.


It’s great to serve this waffles warm with maple syrup or honey
Top it with your favourite fresh fruits....

Isn’t this a very satisfying and heartwarming breakfast for your family??

Do have an enjoyable week!

  12. Hi Ivy,
    Your waffles looks delicious! I've made pumpkin waffles once, and added in ground cinnamon and nutmeg. It was fragrant and yummy. My waffle maker is collecting dust, time to put it back to use!
    Thanks for sharing, would love to have one with a cup of coffee!

  13. Hi Ivy, you sure can make mouth watering cakes, waffles, whatever....and what I see can be easily mistaken having these at The 4 Seasons or even the Raffles, Singapore. You are good, Ivy!
    And can't help notice your Maple syrup....wayyyy to go, Ivy!
    And I can tell you, this is a lupa nama isteri dessert and a guaranteed rosak nama mak with a "may I have 2 more pieces please". After eating 3. Ha ha ha.
    Have fun, and keep a song in your heart.

  18. These look wonderful. We had waffle sticks three times this week. I love waffles. So yummy. Sometimes I made chocolate chip waffle sticks and freeze them and then eat them frozen. Sounds bad, though. But it's really good.
