Pumpkin Belgian Waffles

  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cups milk
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup pumpkin or butternut squash puree
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice mix (or 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon nutmeg)
  • For serving – butter, maple syrup, whipped cream, chopped pecans, freshly ground nutmeg

In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, mix the eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla extract, and puree to form a delightfully orange mess. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice and mix on low speed or hand mix carefully until partially incorporated and then fully mix on medium speed until fully incorporated - it should take a minute or three.

Preheat a Belgian waffle iron until ready to cook. Spray lightly with cooking spray or brush with melted coconut oil. Add about a half cup of the batter at a time and cook until fully cooked and fluffy - about 4 or 5 minutes for a Belgian waffle. Remove from the iron and keep warm in the oven set at the lowest possible temperature while you make all of the waffles.

Serve the waffles with your choice of toppings and enjoy!
