Spiced Eggnog Waffles

Overview of eggnog waffles cooling on a rack dusted with powdered sugar


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-grain pastry flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Powdered sugar, cinnamon, and/or pure maple syrup for topping 


  1. Preheat the waffle iron, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. 
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl – both flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. 
  3. Whisk together wet ingredients in a separate bowl – butter, egg, vanilla extract, eggnog, and milk. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredient bowl and mix together until just combined. It’s ok if there are a few lumps. 
  4. Ladle waffle batter onto hot waffle iron in about 1/4 cup increments, and cook waffles according to your waffle maker instructions (timing will vary).
  5. Serve with powdered sugar, cinnamon, pure maple syrup, and/or toppings of your choosing.
