The Technique

Pumpkin-Walnut Waffles

Pumpkin-Walnut Waffles offer a taste of seasonal flavor with minimal effort. Beating the egg whites first, then folding them into the batter aides in creating a crisp texture once cooked. Place the waffles on a wire rack over a half sheet pan in a 200 degree oven to keep them warm during the procedure. Chocolate-Pecan Waffles, Banana Bread Waffles & Buttermilk-Cornmeal Waffles are additional recipes that should be kept in your repertoire for lovely variety all year long. Learn how to make this wonderful breakfast staple in your very own kitchen.

Pumpkin-Walnut Waffles
makes 5 servings

1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup whole buttermilk
6 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 large eggs, separated
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
Maple syrup & melted butter

Preheat the waffle maker. Whisk together the pumpkin puree, the buttermilk, the oil & the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Whisk together the flour, the cornstarch, the baking powder, the soda, the salt & the pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl. Beat the egg whites with a hand-held electric mixer on High speed until stiff peaks form. Stir the pumpkin mixture into flour mixture just until blended. Fold in the beaten egg whites. Portion 1/2 cup of batter onto a hot, lightly greased waffle iron. Gently spread to the edges with a small offset spatula. Sprinkle with some of the walnuts & close the lid. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until steam subsides. Remove from the iron & keep warm in a 200 degree oven on a rack over a sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining batter & walnuts. Serve with maple syrup, melted butter & additional toasted walnuts.

When preparing baking recipes that call for brown sugar, it’s important to get an accurate measurement. Be certain to pack it tightly in the measuring cup & level with a knife, if necessary. Once you have the proper amount, add it as is to the recipes or crumble through your fingers to break it up to ensure the proper blending takes place.
