Fall into Flavor

Linda at 2nd cup of coffee had another great idea Fall into Flavor

Gingerbread Waffles

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, (if you do not have fresh you can use ground nutmeg, just use less)
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, plus some to butter the iron

Preheat waffles iron.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar until fluffy, then beat in milk, molasses and melted butter.
Stir the wet into dry until just moist.
Do not over stir the waffle batter.
Brush the iron with a little melted butter (you can use cooing spray as well) and cook waffles until brown and crispy.
Serve with toppings of choice.
I like mine with butter and warm apple sauce or warm apple butter, but you can also take some regular pancake syrup and simmer it in a small pan with a cinnamon stick and a few whole cloves while you are cooking your waffles.
Serve with sausage or bacon and orange juice.
This really hits the spot on a chilly Saturday morning or we are huge fans of breakfast for dinner. After a long hard day nothing feels better than a plate of warm spicy crispy waffles.

Also a tip from my grandma, if you will pre-heat your oven to 250 and set your dinner plates in the oven while you are cooking your waffles then serve your waffle on a warm plate with the warm apple sauce or syrup. My grandma would never have served a pancake or a waffle on a cold plate!

The warm plate will keep your waffles nice a warm while you eat.

OMGosh it is too good.

Seriously? Gingerbread waffles? Be still, my heart! I'm drooling, and I just ate.
PS: I love your blog colors/template.

I think if a person had this for breakfast, a great day is guaranteed. I could eat this for dinner, too! And great idea about sharing the tip. Also, I, too, love your template.

Yummy - makes me hungry for sure. That's a wonderful idea to warm the plates - I never thought of that. It'll sure keep the food nice and warm.
I also listened to your video and enjoyed seeing and hearing you. I feel like I know you alittle better now.
