Step 1

Heat oven to 200 degrees F.

Step 2

Heat waffle iron to manufacturers directions. When iron is heated spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3

In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (flour -salt), stir in the pumpkin and currants (or raisins).

Step 4

In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients (buttermilk - vanilla and egg yolks). Stir wet into dry mixture.

Step 5

Beat egg whites in a bowl of an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into batter.

Step 6

For each waffle, spoon (or pour) a generous cup of the batter into the heated waffle iron, close iron and bake until waffle is crisped and golden. Remove the baked waffle and put into the oven directly on the oven rack. Repeat with remaining batter making about 4 or so waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron.

Step 7

To serve, top hot waffle with a pat of butter. Sprinkle plate with pecans and pie spice and serve with warmed syrup.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The first words out of the DH mouth was 'this is a keeper'! I agree, they turned out light and fluffy. Did add the chopped pecans to the batter with great results. For the size of my waffle maker, I got 5. Will be making these again for sure. Thank you Ellie for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Very light waffle, and lots of flavor. I subbed chopped, dried cranberries for the currants. Served with a cranberry-maple sauce (canned whole-berry sauce and maple syrup heated). Will be making these again. I skipped the pecan garnish, but next time may put them in the batter.
