Sweet Potato Waffles, Sweet Or Savory

recipe image


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (increase up to 1/4 or 1/3 cup if you know you want your waffles for something sweet)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (13- or 14-ounce) coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cup pureed sweet potatoes (or pumpkin, or other winter squash)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron. In one bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, powder, salt, ginger, orange zest, and sugar.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, coconut milk, and pureed sweet potatoes. Then, stir in the dry ingredients just until smooth.
  3. Griddle the waffles in the waffle iron according to the iron’s instruction, cooking until the waffles are browned and crispy on the outside. Keep cooked waffles warm in a 225F oven so you can serve them all at once. As with most waffles, these freeze well and can be toasted when you want to eat them. Serve the waffles with your choice of topping: maple syrup and pecans, avocado and a fried egg, chorizo and spinach, fried chicken and jalapeno syrup, sliced turkey with cranberries and cheddar, you name it!
