Cranberry Pumpkin Waffles Recipe

User Rating 3 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


Delicious cranberry pumpkin waffles may also be made as pancakes for a fruity breakfast. To make pancakes, simply thin the batter with a bit more milk. Top with sour cream, raisins, and confectioners' sugar.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening, preferably Crisco
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup canned, pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, plumped in hot water to cover
  • for 10 minutes and drained
  • Melted butter, for buttering the waffle iron


Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a large mixing bowl and stir with a fork until blended.

Place the milk, butter, and shortening in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until the butter and shortening have melted. Cool slightly.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the pumpkin puree. Stir in the cooled milk and shortening. Add to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Stir in the cranberries.

Preheat the waffle iron; this should take about 10 minutes.

Butter the preheated waffle iron and add about 1/2 cup batter. (It takes from 1/2 to 2/3 cup batter to make 1 waffle, depending on the size of your waffle iron.) Bake the waffles until they are golden and crisp. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings

Like the Cranberries, Member mixleplik

I really enjoyed the cranberries. Those are always good. I'd probably change the recipe somehow for better flavor, but I don't know exactly what to do. Maybe more spice. They were just so-so.
