Pumpkin Waffles

Whenever Stella and Wes have a sleepover at their Bubbie’s house they always come home smelling of syrup. No matter her efforts to wipe them clean they always have that sweet, sugary smell on their soft cheeks-and ears, hair, neck (seriously it is everywhere).  This morning I was craving Pumpkin Waffles so I enlisted my two helpers.

Bisquick Pumpkin Waffles

We have created a take turn system with adding recipe ingredients. I turned my back and they were cracking eggs. They love cracking eggs. And they are good. Like I’m starting to feel like I need a special bumper sticker because I’m so proud. “Proud Parent of kids that can crack a dozen eggs with no egg shell.”

I digress. Pumpkin waffles. Drippy syrup. Ah yes. I love making special flavored waffles. Did you read my Pizza Waffles post? These pumpkin waffles are so easy-seriously my kids put them together, I just supervised and ran the waffle iron.  They were as yummy as you can imagine, perfectly pumpkiny (is pumpkiny a word?) and ready for creamy butter and drippy syrup.  We scarfed the pumpkin waffles down and headed to church.  When we sat at church, the kids took turns sitting on my lap and couldn’t help but smile at the sweet smell of syrup they both still carried from breakfast.

Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 TB Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Pure Pumpkin (canned)
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. In a bowl, combine Bisquick, pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar. Once combined, add pumpkin and stir. Then add milk and eggs.
  3. Drop batter on a preheated waffle iron until iron indicates waffle is ready. This is a sticky batter. I use a one-cup measuring cup and pour the mix in the center of my Belgian-style waffle maker and use a spoon to spread it out across the waffle iron so the whole iron is covered with batter.
  4. Serve waffles with butter, syrup and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice if desired.
  5. If using a Belgian-style circle waffle iron, this recipe makes 3 large Belgian waffles.

  1. I’m also the far-too-proud parent of a kid who can crack an egg – I thought I was crazy for it being such a point of pride! Also, these are amazing – made them this morning 😉 Thanks!

    • It is SO something to be proud of! Many adults can’t even do it! We are grooming little chefs so we have someone to cook amazing food for us when we are older! Thanks so much for trying out the recipe-and commenting! So great to hear you liked them!

  3. Love these! I made a HUGE batch of them and froze them so we can have a delicious breakfast easily on school days! We are going to be enjoying these all fall long!

  5. I saw someone say they froze their batter, how would I do that? That’s a great idea. How long does it keep and how long does it take to thaw before I can use it?

  6. I made these this morning. I used heart healthy bisquick and added extra spice. My waffle maker must be smaller than yours, I got 5 and froze 3 for another day! Love all things pumpkin and this recipe is a keeper. Hubby loved them.

  7. I was looking for a recipe to use up a partial can of pumpkin when I saw this post. Boy, am I glad I did! They were yummy and will now be my go-to pumpkin waffle recipe! I did add more spice including fresh ground black pepper (don’t knock it till you try it…really ramps up the pumpkin pie flavors!) So what did I like about this recipe? Light fluffy waffles that didn’t fall apart…and so easy! Thanks for this great recipe!

  8. The taste was terrific, however, they were soggy and not crisp exterior. Is this normal? I’ve always made from scratch and never used Bisquick. In all fairness, my mix was “Pioneer Buttermilk Baking Mix.” They we’re so thick that I actually added some more milk also! Also I have a small round waffle maker. So I suppose any of these factors might have made them soggy – just wondered what you thought !?!

    • Hi Barbara! Thanks for your note! I always use Bisquick and I don’t add additional milk. That may be why they turned soggy. I also let the waffles stay in the waffle maker a bit beyond the green light ready button which gives them a crisper crust.
