  • Waffle Iron
  • Bowl
  • Microwave


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 large eggs whites and yolks separated
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk I used 2%
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree such as Libby's

Jenny's Buttermilk Syrup from the Picky Palate Cookbook

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Place flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice into a large mixing bowl, stir to combine.
  • Place egg whites into a medium mixing bowl, whisk continuously until stiff peaks form.
  • Place buttermilk, milk, melted butter, vanilla and egg yolks into a large bowl, whisk to combine then slowly stir into dry ingredients. Stir in pumpkin puree then gently fold in egg whites until just combined.
  • Scoop 1/2 cup of batter and place into center of waffle iron, close lid and let cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2 1/2 minutes depending on your waffle iron. Remove hot waffles and place on cooling rack. Continue cooking waffles until all batter is used.
  • To prepare buttermilk syrup, place butter, sugar and buttermilk into a small saucepan. Stir until melted and comes to a low boil. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla. Syrup will foam up. Let sit aside and stir occasionally until foam has gone down.
