I just took another pass at modifying the recipe to accommodate more pumpkin. I feel 90% of the way to having a new and improved pumpkin waffle recipe. Slightly more butter and baking soda and a good bit more baking powder seem to have done the trick. The fat from the butter mellows out the mouth-feel and the added leavening overcomes the density wrought by the extra puree.

If all goes well, the new recipe will attain a perfect balance between the pumpkin and individual spice flavors, where all mingle equally on the palette.

I’m off to Paris on Tuesday, but I will continue the experiments when I return. For reference, below are the new metric weights for this last batch.

• 50g light brown sugar
• 156g all-purpose flour
• 8.4g baking powder
• 3.6g baking soda
• 1.50g salt
• 3.0g cinnamon
• 3.5g ginger
• 0.5g cloves
• 0.6g freshly grated nutmeg
• 2 large eggs
• 80g buttermilk
• 244g canned solid-pack pumpkin
• 56g unsalted butter, melted and warm

I just baked an experimental batch, attempting to max-out the pumpkin flavor by adding 1/3 more pumpkin, while reducing some of the liquid. The result was delicious, but the texture left something to be desired; the waffle was too dense. I will keep experimenting, particularly with the leavening, but I think there is a limit to the amount of puree that can be used before the waffle’s structure is fundamentally compromised.

• 50g light brown sugar
• 150g all-purpose flour
• 6.3g baking powder
• 2.3g baking soda
• 1.50g salt
• 3.0g cinnamon
• 3.5g ginger
• 0.5g cloves
• 0.6g freshly grated nutmeg
• 2 large eggs
• 80g buttermilk
• 244g canned solid-pack pumpkin

I’ve just posted the metric version of the pumpkin waffle recipe.

Although the standard/English measurement version is great, the metric version is super precise and results in a perfectly consistent outcome for the waffles every single time they’re made.

I’ve just finished formatting the latest incarnation of the recipe on its permanent page. The metric version of the recipe is soon to come, followed by many photos and musings on pumpkin waffles.
