I love using a pumpkin pie spice mix that I make ourselves. It’s got lots of extra cinnamon in one of our favourite spices. But I know that most of you will use a store-bought mix so I’ve got extra cinnamon on the ingredients to make them taste like mine.

Tips for Using your Waffle Make for Fall Waffles

If you are using a waffle iron regularly then you need to make sure that you protect your surface. Although in the past I have used a non-stick spray this actually left a coating on my waffle maker that I started to be able to taste on some of our breakfast waffles.

So instead, I use some sunflower oil and lightly brush the pans and then give them a very light wipe with some paper towel to remove the excess. This keeps the pans of the waffle iron non-stick and produces amazing waffles every time.

How to Make Fluffy Pumpkin Waffles

One of the things to watch for when you make pumpkin waffles is that you don't lose the fluffiness. To ensure that they are fluffy I recommend only using egg whites and whipping them to a slightly white stage before adding them into your liquid ingredients and then whisking them together to make sure that the air stays.

Don't overbeat the mixture though otherwise they will lose their fluffiness and become chewier.
