As promised earlier this week, I’m sharing a pumpkin recipe. My recipe for the fluffiest Pumpkin Buttermilk Waffles! Then of course, I topped these waffles with freshly whipped cream, pecans, and my sinfully delicious salted maple caramel sauce.  I can’t wait to share this recipe with my family when they travel to our home for Thanksgiving.

I’ve partnered up with KitchenAid on a very special program called “Pass the Plate“. Last month, was Breast Cancer Awareness Month (I realize I’m a little late to the party–and yes, its the baby’s fault). Here is how the program works:

The recipe is a snap: make a meal, serve it on our uniquely-marked Villeroy & Boch
plates, and share it with someone special. That person then keeps it and passes it on
to the next. The best part is once your plate is registered, each recipient can add to the
plate’s journey, and we’ll add to the donation total. For every person who registers their
plate, we’ll give $5 to Susan G. Komen®.  

This year, Jacques Pepin created a unique design on a Villeroy and Boch plate. It’s beautiful and a nice large plate to share a large meal on it with the ones you love–like my Pumpkin Buttermilk Waffles. KitchenAid has been a long standing partner with Susan G. Komen® and the Cook For the Cure program. I love the idea of sharing a meal with someone you love and passing on the plate–all to raise money for a great cause!

Just because its not October any more doesn’t mean, you can’t still participate in the “Pass the Plate” program. We need to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research year-round not just during the month of October. So how far will your plate go? And if you serve these pumpkin buttermilk waffles on them… well I’m sure it will go a tad-bit further!

    Love pumpkin and love waffles. My waffle iron burned out last year though. Might be time to replace it.

      Rogene these waffles are divine. I definitely think you need to get a new waffle iron ASAP!

    Whoa… Those look amazing!

    • Katie replied on November 23rd, 2013 at 7:36 am

      Thanks Sommer! They are so good. I made a double batch and froze the rest for a later date! They are so good!

    My son and I just had these for dinner tonight. They were delicious. I had such a craving for waffles and came across this recipe. Very easy to make. Can’t wait to make them again.

    • Katie replied on October 4th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

      Glad you loved them Fran! I too crave waffles and then I make batches and batches of them and freeze them!

    These were delicious!

    • Katie replied on October 30th, 2014 at 8:44 pm

      Alyssa, I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I haven’t made them since last year–guess I better whip up a batch this weekend!

    Tried these today and they were absolutely amazing! The perfect flavor, crisp and tender on the inside! Searched so much for a good pumpkin waffle recipe and these are definitely going to be my go to . Thanks for sharing!

    • Katie replied on October 13th, 2015 at 9:41 am

      Eboney, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I’m so glad you love these waffles as much as my family does. I just published a recipe for pumpkin buttermilk waffles… you have to try those too. I think you’ll love them!

    Wow, Katie! These were so delicious! My husband requested waffles this morning, and after a quick Pinterest search, I stumbled on these. I’m so glad I chose your recipe! I have a finicky “waffle boat” waffle maker, and a lot of recipes are soggy in it, but this one had a perfect crispy texture. Thanks so much!

    • Katie replied on November 4th, 2015 at 10:27 pm

      Awe so glad you guys loved these Lindsey Yes–they are the perfect mix of light and fluffy and crispy!

  8. Marilyn posted on November 4, 2015 at 1:01 pm (#)

    I want to try these! I did not see the butter mentioned in the directions, though … is it added to the wet ingredients?

    • Katie replied on November 4th, 2015 at 10:33 pm

      Hi Marilyn, Yes you add it into the wet ingredients. I just updated the recipe–hope that helps!

  9. Elizabeth posted on November 10, 2015 at 6:12 pm (#)

    Yum! I just made these for dinner tonight and they were a big hit. I added in grated Apple from a Gala I had laying around. I’m not sure if it changed anything, but made me think they were healthier!

    • Katie replied on November 11th, 2015 at 8:45 pm

      Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the waffles. They are a big hit in my house too! Did you add the grated apple to the batter or on top?

    We made this tonight and it was fantastic! We’ve tried a few pumpkin waffle recipes before, but this was our favorite! Crispy exterior, chewy and lightweight interior. Subtle, not overpowering, pumpkin flavor. What more could you ask for in a recipe!? Made a maple cream cheese drizzle and toasted pecans!

    • Katie replied on November 6th, 2019 at 10:08 pm

      Hi Meghan, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I’m so glad you enjoyed these waffles! That maple cream cheese and toasted pecans sound amazing, too!
