Pumpkin Waffles // Serves 2

Prep Time: 30 Minutes


  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp of melted butter
  • 1 cup of almond milk or whole milk (I prefer almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 3 tsp of baking powder
  • a dash of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp allspice


Mix the first five ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients. Combine both mix into one bowl. Preheat the waffle iron and spray with non-stick butter spray. Pour the mix onto waffle iron. For a golden brown color put in medium heat, wait and serve. Decorate with blueberries or fruit of your choice.

Food Photography Style Tips

  • For a better picture quality use natural light.
  • My favorite is the white background but you can be creative by using wooden tables and other props.
  • If necessary, stand up in a chair and take the picture from a bird’s eye view.
  • Use the utensils and other kitchen elements to enhance the picture environment.
  • Arrange food outside the plate to make it more Instagram worthy.

This recipe is super easy and perfect for a home-made Sunday brunch.
