Homemade Pumpkin Waffles

Labor Day came and went.  My neighborhood is complaining that the pool is closed.  I live in North Carolina and it’s still warm, but the past few years, right after Labor Day, the weather has really gotten cool.  I’m ready for my cool nights and pumpkin EVERYTHING and these homemade pumpkin waffles are the perfect recipe to start with.

Every time I go to the grocery store I always pick up a couple of cans of pumpkin.  A few years ago their was a shortage and I couldn’t find it anywhere and I’m not having that problem ever again and making sure my pantry is fully stocked.  I thought some pumpkin waffles were a good place to start this year.  This is the first time I ever made these and it was a hit!

Aren't you loving fall? Try these great homemade pumpkin waffles for brunch this weekend.

Homemade Pumpkin Waffles


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


You know me.  I don’t do anything that’s complicated!  Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth.  I just used a fork. I sprayed a waffle iron with olive oil from my misto. (Yes, I still use it.)   My waffle iron takes 7 minutes for a waffle to cook and it took the same amount of time for the pumpkin waffle too.  Everyone has a different kind so cooking time will vary.

This takes the same amount of time as regular waffles so try these the next time you make breakfast.

    Will this keep in the fridge or can it be frozen?

      It will keep for a day or 2 in the fridge, but I just freeze mine and then pop them in the toaster oven when we’re ready to eat.
