Total Time

If your family is tired of ordinary waffles, they'll sit up and take notice when you sit this pumpkin-infused version and its orange syrup partner on the table. I got this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Dieter's Cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In another medium bowl combine the milk, pumpkin, egg substitute, and oil. Add milk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).
  3. Pour about 3/4 cup batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker. close lid quickly; do not open until golden brown. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grids. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. For Orange Syrup: In a small saucepan stir together the orange juice, honey, cornstarch and cinnamon. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Serve warm. Makes about 1 cup.

I wont give a star rating, as I didn't make the orange syrup that everyone is raving about. I just made the pancakes, and hey were quite good. I used a nutriwheat flour (tastes like white flour, nutrition or wheat flour) and that was the only change i made. I was hopign for more pumpkin flavour. I wqas also hoping for a more crispy waffle, but that could have been because of my flour maybe? Anyways, I would still make these again:) thanks!

I loved these! Perfect for breakfast for dinner! My waffle iron didn't like the thickness of the batter so I added in about a 1/4 cup more of skim milk and that seemed to take care of it. It was still thick, but manageable. I really liked the flavour. It was overpowering at all. I also liked that I was getting some veggies into my guys. I did change up the flour a touch. I did 1 1/2 cups all purpose, 1/4 cup whole wheat, 1/4 cup cornmeal (fine). That may have contributed to the thickness of the batter too, so I don't fault the recipe in the least! It was more than likely all my fault. :) I will make these again. Thank you SO much for sharing.

I love pumpkin so I just had to try these, the batter seemed very thick. I would like to try and thin the batter a little next time and also add a bit more pumpkin pie spice or maybe add in some cinnamon. They did cook up nice and fluffy. The orange syrup is the shinning star of this recipe what a nice addition to the pumpkin flavor of the waffles. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for spring 08 PAC.
