• 80 milliliters (1/3 cup) cream 10%
  • 150 grams (1 1/4 cups) flour
  • 100 grams (3/4 cup) walnuts
  • 100 grams (7 tablespoons) butter
  • 150 grams (3/4 cup) sugar
  • 10 grams (2 teaspoons) baking powder
  • 8 grams (1 tablespoon) vanilla sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 350 grams (12.35 ounces / 0.77 pounds) pumpkin
  • 200 milliliters (3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon) water
  • 2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons) sugar for pumpkin puree


  • Waffle Iron

    Ensure your waffle iron is non-stick and has an adjustable temperature. A good preheat is essential for a crispy outer layer.

  • Blender

    Handy for making smooth pumpkin puree and grinding walnuts into fine flour. A high-speed blender will get the best texture.

  • Mixing Bowls

    You'll need at least two — one for wet ingredients and one for dry. Wider bowls make it easier to blend everything evenly.

  • Spatula

    A silicone spatula is ideal for mixing your batter without deflating it. It’s also great for scraping every last bit of goodness!


Step 1

Peel the pumpkin and cut it into cubes. Boil it over medium heat with water and sugar. Cover with a lid and simmer for another 5 minutes on low heat. Mash the mixture with a blender until smooth.

Step 2

You will need 150 grams (5.25 ounces) of pumpkin puree for the waffles recipe.

Step 3

Fry the nuts in a dry frying pan, then grind them in a blender to make nut flour. Melt the butter for a smoother mix. Beat the eggs with sugar, then add the melted butter, cream, and pumpkin puree. Beat everything together again. Use a mixer for a better result.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, mix the walnut flour, wheat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and vanilla sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and blend using a spatula. Gently fold the mix to maintain its texture.

Step 5

Place the dough in the fridge for an hour or overnight. This helps the flavors to blend well.

Step 6

Heat the waffle iron. Pour 2 tablespoons of the dough and bake according to the waffle iron's instructions. It typically takes around 7 minutes.

Step 7

Serve garnished with honey and nuts. Feel free to add fresh fruits for extra flavor.


Imagine a cozy autumn morning, the scent of spiced pumpkin wafting through the air 🍁. Serve these delightful waffles with a drizzle of warm honey and a sprinkle of chopped nuts for an extra crunch 🌰. Feeling indulgent? Add a dollop of whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon on top—pure bliss! If you're hosting a brunch, pair them with fresh fruit like apple or pear slices for a fresh, seasonally appropriate side 🥂. These waffles are not just for breakfast anymore; they make for an excellent dessert when topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🍨. Serve alongside a hot cup of coffee or chai for an unforgettable treat.


For a gluten-free twist, substitute the wheat flour with a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Ensure your baking powder is also gluten-free to keep it 100% safe.

Going vegan? No problem! Use dairy-free butter, plant-based cream, and flax eggs (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water per egg) in place of regular eggs 🥥.


  • Why are my waffles sticking to the waffle iron?

    Ensure your waffle iron is well preheated and greased. Non-stick spray or a light brushing of oil can help.

  • How do I know when my waffles are done?

    Wait until the steam stops escaping from the waffle iron. This is usually a good indicator that they are cooked through and crispy.

  • Can I make the batter ahead of time?

    Yes, you can refrigerate the batter overnight. In fact, an hour or more of rest time makes for fluffier waffles!

  • Can I freeze these waffles?

    Absolutely! Let the waffles cool completely, then freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet before transferring to a ziplock bag. Reheat in a toaster or oven.

  • How can I ensure even mixing of ingredients?

    Add the dry ingredients slowly into the wet while stirring to avoid clumps. Use a spatula to fold everything together gently.

  • Can I substitute other nuts for walnuts?

    Certainly! Pecans or almonds would make great substitutes, providing a different but delicious nutty flavor.
