Servings 8


For the waffles:

  • 3/4 c. warm whole milk
  • 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (1 package)
  • 16 oz. all-purpose flour (about 3 3/4 c.)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter, melted (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin

For the Cinnamon Whipped Cream:

  • 1 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp. instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • (maple syrup for drizzling)


For the waffles:

  • In a small bowl, add warm whole milk and 1 package active dry yeast. Whisk together to dissolve and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add flour, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Stir to combine. Add milk and yeast mixture, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin. Stir together well, cover, and let rise in a draft free area for at least 30 minutes, but no longer than 45 minutes. (The dough will be sticky.)
  • Lightly oil waffle iron and preheat according to your waffle iron's instructions. You only need to oil it once at the beginning. The dough contains quite a bit of butter, so the waffles will not stick during baking.
  • Divide dough into 8 large balls, or use a large metal scoop to place dough balls into hot waffle iron. I use a Cuisinart Electric Belgian Waffle Maker and set the temperature between 4 & 5. The waffles need to bake at least 3 minutes each, maybe longer. Make sure the waffles are nice and brown to insure doneness.

For the Cinnamon Whipped Cream:

  • In a chilled mixing bowl, add heavy cream and beat until soft peaks form. Add white chocolate pudding mix, vanilla, and cinnamon. Continue beating until thickened. Scoop or dollop large spoons of whipped cream on top of waffles before serving. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy!


These waffles are also delicious with just a pat of butter and maple syrup.  Cinnamon whipped cream is just an added extra special touch. 
If you happen to have any leftover waffles, store in a ziploc bag or airtight container.  Refrigerate any extra whipped cream.   Warm the waffles in the oven the next day, top with whipped cream and syrup, and enjoy!
