Description

Just like eating Christmas for breakfast. They’re even better with buttermilk syrup.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Large Eggs, Yolks And Whites Separated
  • 1-½ cup Buttermilk (or Regular Milk Plus 1 1/2 Tablespoons Vinegar)
  • ½ cups Molasses
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1-½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cardamom (optional, But Recommended)

Preparation

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and egg yolks until smooth and creamy. Stir in buttermilk, molasses, and butter.

Into a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom.

In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks have formed.

Add liquid mixture into sifted dry ingredients and stir together. Fold in egg whites.

Cook according to waffle iron instructions.

(In my waffle iron, using 1/3-cup scoops, I made 16 waffles.)

Wondering if I could use this for pancake batter if I didn’t separate the eggs. I don’t have a waffle iron.

This recipe is absolutely fabulous!
The only change I would make is creaming the butter in with the sugar, then adding the egg yokes, and continuing with the recipe from there. I put the butter in as stated and ended up with a mess to clean up.
This brought to mind of a story about my Dad and Uncle having a butter fight in my Great Grandmother’s kitchen. Okay my mess wasn’t that bad but the humor of the situation helped.

Kay, so it seems that I’m late to the party in discovering this site. BUT, sooo glad I did! My family ADORES breakfast for dinner, so I whipped these up last night. We smothered them with homemade cranberry butter (MissyDew’s recipe from this site) and holy crap were they good! They are a new family favourite. It’s too bad I didn’t find this recipe a couple weeks ago, they would have been a perfect addition to Christmas brunch. Good thing Christmas comes every year. ;)

These are fabulous! My three year old told me this morning at breakfast that he knew a song about gingerbread waffles. I mentioned I didn’t remember how it went so he began to sing for me. I was singing your praises as well – thanks for sharing this recipe. I love your blog but wanted to leave a review here. We’ll definitely be holding on to this recipe for a long time.
