Pumpkin Waffles

Misha LOVES pumpkin. I think the holidays are his favorite season simply because of all the pumpkin stuff that goes around. I saw these waffles in Apple a Day‘s blog, and decided that since Misha had the weekend off, and was off to work on a weekend project, that this would be a perfect filling breakfast for the day.

Well, I had all the supplies ready to go and I was all set… and then my car got hit while it was parked at his Aunt and Uncles. So we ended up being up all night calling insurance companies, trying to get things taken care of. Unfortunatly Friday night is one of the worst nights to get hit, insurance companies do nothing. So Saturday morning we continued calling, making little progress because nothing happends until the next business day.

We got started a little later than planned, but the waffles were still good.

Pumpkin Orange Waffles
Adapted from Apple a Day.


1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk (I used powdered)
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
3 tsp orange zest (I skipped this)
1/2 cup orange juice
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the waffle iron.
  2. Whisk together egg, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, orange peel, and orange juice in a large bowl.
  3. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to the pumpkin mixture and stir until well blended.
  4. Once waffle iron is ready, spray with cooking spray and pour in batter. Cook until done.
  5. Keep warm in the oven until the rest of the waffles are done.
  6. Serve with bacon and maple syrup. Enjoy!

My waffles were a bit flat, but I think it had something to do with the powdered buttermilk versus real buttermilk. I would make these again but I would need to experiment more. I should probably use real buttermilk next time, but they were still very good.

    These look wonderful! I didn’t even think about using powdered buttermilk but will take your suggestion of using real.

    Yay! I’m so glad you liked them, but I’m sorry you had to eat them on such a yucky day. Hope things are getting better!
