Gingerbread Waffles Are A Great Way To Welcome The Holidays

When the holiday season approaches and cool mornings have you reaching for a sweater, then you may be feeling the urge to pull out your recipe book, mixing bowls, and measuring cups. The Baking season is upon us, so why not try this delicious and simple recipe for Gingerbread Waffles. Your house will smell divine and your family will thank you. This recipe is faster and easier to make than other recipes. Moreover, you’ll be trying a fun variation on breakfast staple.

Gingerbread Waffles Ingredients:

1 cup of real butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 cup molasses
2 cups flour
1 1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. finely ground ginger
1 tsp. finely ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup of boiling water


The first step is to heat and spray your waffle maker according to the directions of the appliance manufacturer. Next, cream the butter and granulated sugar until the mixture is light and airy. Then add the 2 eggs along with the molasses, and beat the ingredients together until they are smooth. In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients together, which include the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. You should add the remaining ingredients into the butter mixture by alternating the combined dry ingredients with the boiling water.

Spoon the batter into the waffle maker and allow it to spread. Check your waffle manual for an exact time, although each waffle should take about 3 to 4 minutes. The batter will steam at first and when it stops, the waffle should be ready for you to plate. You can expect the batter to produce approximately 12 waffles that are 4 inches in size, or if you have a Belgium waffle maker, the batter will make 3 big fluffy Belgium waffles. You can double the recipe if your family is large. Also, the waffles are mouthwatering when served with maple syrup, apple butter or cinnamon syrup.

You can make homemade cinnamon syrup with a few ingredients that are probably already in your spice cabinet.

Although we don't like to admit it, there are times when you need to eat something other than waffles. Here you can find a link to Amazon which is a great place to buy your first or your new waffle maker. Then you have other sites that also offer great recipes and we like to visit them sometimes when we are in a mood for something other that waffles. Which is not very often :). Enjoy!
