Gingerbread Waffles

What a Christmas morning breakfast this is! If you like gingerbread then you’re going to love these waffles!


½ Cup Brown Sugar

2 Eggs – Separated

1 ½ Cups Buttermilk

½ Cup Molasses

7 Tablespoons Melted Butter

2 Cups Unbleached Flour

3 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

2 Teaspoons Ginger

2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

½ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Cloves

¼ Teaspoon Nutmeg

¼ Teaspoon Cardamom

Mix the brown sugar and egg yolk together in a medium size bowl. Stir in the buttermilk, butter and molasses. Set aside. In a separate larger bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt and cardamom. Set aside. In a metal or glass bowl whip up the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks have formed. Now add the brown sugar mixture into the dry ingredients and stir, but don’t over stir. Fold in the egg whites. Brush your preheated waffle iron with butter. Spoon in the waffle batter and close the lid. Cook until done (see your waffle iron instructions). Remove from the waffle iron and serve with butter and maple syrup. Makes 16 waffles.
