I love when the fall cold weather calls for pumpkin everything: for pumpkin main dishes, desserts and breakfast using pumpkin. This days is so easy to just open a can of Libby’s pumpkin puree and make any pumpkin dish you desire. I heard some people even eat it with a spoon (tssss….)!

Perfect Pumpkin waffles recipe

This recipe is very simple and instructions are easy to follow. First you will need to turn your waffle iron on and add all the wet ingredients into the bowl and whisk them together. Eggs, pumpkin puree, milk and melted butter. Make sure that the butter is not too hot otherwise it will cook the eggs right in the bowl. Add it little by little.bowl with waffles dough

Now its time to add all the dry ingredients. Mix pumpkin pie spice with all purpose flour, baking powder, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Add dry mixture to the wet dough. Mix together and start cooking on your waffle maker! Depending on the size of your waffle iron, add a scoop or a half a scoop at a time. Once the indicator shows green light, the waffle is ready!

How to make pumpkin waffles with pancake mix

Can i freeze pumpkin waffles

Its very easy to freeze pumpkin waffles and then use them as a quick breakfast for the whole family. You need to use the same technique as when you freeze fresh dumplings, so they don’t stick together.  So, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper and put waffles on it side by side. Place the sheet into the freezer until waffles are hard to touch, about 2-3 hours. Then transfer them into the gallon size bag. Put a label on a bag to remember when you make them. Frozen pumpkinwaffles will be good for about 3-4 months.

To reheat, juts put them in a toaster, air fryer, or simply in to the oven.

Bonus: If you want to try a true Belgium waffle, here is the recipe to go!
