Description

These waffles are filled with pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and cloves and topped off with a gloriously indulgent bacon maple butter!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BACON MAPLE BUTTER:
  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 8 slices Well Done Bacon, Chopped Finely
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • FOR THE PUMPKIN WAFFLES:
  • 2-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ⅓ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 4  Eggs
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 6 Tablespoons Melted Butter

Preparation

For The Bacon Maple Butter:

In a stand up mixer, beat the butter and chopped bacon until combined. Add the syrup and mix well. Transfer to a small dish and keep in the fridge until ready to use.

For The Pumpkin Waffles:

Preheat the waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.

In a medium-sized bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and spices.

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the milk, buttermilk, pumpkin and butter. Whisk until smooth and well blended. Whisk in the dry ingredients until just smooth. Make sure that you don’t over-work it.

Brush the waffle iron with canola oil or non-stick spray. Pour enough batter onto the waffle plate and spread to fill the space. Close the waffle maker and bake until golden and firm.

It’s a good idea to keep a tray in a warm (250 F) oven and transfer the cooked waffles to it while you repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve waffles warm with a scoop of bacon butter on top and drizzled with extra maple syrup.

Great recipe, Gerry. Fixed these before a golf outing with six old college friends, and they loved them! I especially liked the layers of flavor.

Man are these good! I halved the butter recipe and I still had plenty of butter for the waffles. My family loved it and we will definitely be making this recipe again. Yum!

These are delicious and my home smelled amazing while they were baking. I have a small waffle maker so it made A LOT between my hubby and I.

This was delicious! I quartered the butter recipe and halved the waffle recipe. That was more than plenty for 2 people.

These were really good! I used mostly wheat flour and they still tasted excellent. My only problem was that they took a long time in my waffle maker for some reason. Maybe because they fluff up so much?
