And for my part, I’m going to show you how to make these scrumptious Pumpkin Spice Waffles!

How do you keep waffles crispy?

The secret ingredient to a crispy waffle…..is club soda! Yep, that’s it. A little club soda in waffle batter does wonders!

It creates these waffles that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside! Such a great trick I learned from my Aunt Nancy 🙂

These waffles also freeze beautifully. So you can make a big batch of them, pop in a ziplock bag and reheat in the oven at 350F until warmed through, or pop in your toaster.

They also make for a great dessert too! Either as an ice cream sundae base with a little homemade caramel sauce…

Or as an ice cream sandwich!

Learn how to make my Pumpkin Spice Waffle Recipe. A great fall breakfast idea!


For Waffles:

  • 1 ¾ cup (210g) flour
  • 1 tbsp(7g) baking powder
  • ½ tsp (2.5ml) baking soda
  • 1 tbsp (7g) pumpkin pie spice*
  • 3 tbsp (38g) sugar
  • ½ tsp (2.5ml) salt
  • 1 cup (240ml) milk
  • 7 tbsp (105 ml) melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) vanilla
  • 1 cup (240ml) canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin puree)
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) club soda or sparkling water
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans (for garnish)

Homemade Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • ½  tsp vanilla


  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, sugar and salt. Then add milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla, pumpkin puree and club soda. Mix to combine.
  2. Lightly grease waffle iron with melted butter.  Once iron is hot, ladle just a small amount of batter so that it doesn’t fill the well, this will give you nice irregular edges (like the picture). Once done, pile 3 waffles to a plate, top with a dollop of whipped cream and chopped pecans.
  3. For Whipped Cream: Place all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and whip until soft peaks form.
