Here are some easy-to-make Gingerbread Waffles for the holiday season!
When you treat yourself to breakfast by going out to the best breakfast restaurant in town, you might spot some really interesting seasonal specials on the menu. These Gingerbread Waffles are one of those recipes that could pop up on a menu. As my family has told me, these waffles are definitely “restaurant quality.”
How to make Gingerbread Waffles:
The dry ingredients contain great gingerbread spices like a generous amount of ground ginger and touch of ground cinnamon. The wet ingredients consist of buttermilk, applesauce, eggs, oil and molasses. The dry and the wet are combined to make this holiday-spiced waffle batter.
Grab your favorite waffle maker, heat it up, spray it with nonstick spray and spoon the batter into the waffle iron. If you prefer a waffle iron that makes more waffles at one time, try this square-shaped waffle iron.
This recipe makes 4 to 5 Gingerbread Waffles. Double the recipe if you’re feeding more people (or if your family is hungry!)
Break the waffles into smaller wedges for serving, if you’d like.
Serve Gingerbread Waffles with butter and warm maple syrup. We also like to serve them with Cranberry Mimosas on Christmas morning, but they’re really delicious any time of year. They’re such a comforting breakfast for a winter morning!
What do Gingerbread Waffles taste like?
I know you’re probably thinking that these waffles taste just like gingerbread cookies. Well, they don’t quite taste like cookies. But they do have the great flavor of wonderfully spiced ginger waffles. If you want to emphasize the taste of ginger even more, you could always add some chopped crystallized ginger to the waffle batter. These are delicious holiday waffles. Enjoy!
Here are a few more waffle recipes you might like to try:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1½ cups low fat buttermilk
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
- 3 tablespoons molasses
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour through cinnamon).
Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry, stirring just until combined.
Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon the batter onto the hot waffle iron, spreading the batter to the edges. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the steaming stops (follow your waffle iron instructions). Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter. Serve with butter and warmed maple syrup.
