Winter is quickly approaching, and we like to welcome the cold morning with the warm, spicy flavor of Gingerbread Waffles. Now, If you’re not Really Into Gingerbread, still give these a go. While these are Gingerbread Waffles, the flavor is not overpowering. If you like your Gingerbread to have some kick to it, then add some more ginger to the mix. Either way, these are a wonderful addition to your holiday baking or even your morning routine.
Now, my daughter is Really Into molasses. I’m not kidding. Anytime I pull the molasses out of the cupboard, an alarm goes off & she comes running. She will eat (or drink) 1/4 cup of the stuff. It’s unreal. When I found the Gingerbread Waffles recipe from King Arthur Flour, she was excited to try them. When I told her I would add some extra molasses, she was all in!
You already know that King Arthur Flour is where I find the majority of my baking recipes. I trust them. We all know there’s nothing worse than getting Really excited about a recipe & not having it turn out the way to want. This is why I use King Arthur Flour. They have step by step instructions & I can count on their guidance & expertise.
The best thing about this recipe is it can be made ahead. Actually, I think the gingerbread flavor becomes stronger, the longer the batter rests. Anytime I make these Gingerbread Waffles, I double the recipe & we enjoy them as an after-school snack.
I always make a mess in the kitchen. A little dribble here, a dollop over there, flour EVERYWHERE – I’m a mess. That’s why using this scooper for my waffles is a necessity. While some people can get away with using a measuring cup or a large spoon, this is the only way I don’t spill batter all over the kitchen. Well, less batter anyway.
Throughout the years, we’ve tried a few different batter keepers. We used hard plastic one from Sur la Table & one fall to the ground & it was toast. I think I picked up this guy up at Crate & Barrel & we love it. For us, it’s the best (and easiest) way to save pancake & waffle batter & you can squeeze it right from the bottle. It’s easy to clean & easy to store. Countless pancakes & waffles later, it’s going strong.
I am Really Into This Gingerbread Waffle recipe. The best part is, my family is Really Into them too. These Gingerbread Waffles are so easy & are quickly becoming a staple in our house. Pair these with a Gingerbread Latte & I’m in heaven!
The other day I snagged a bag of Penzey Spices Ginger Sweet Bits. I thought they would be a great addition to my holiday baking. Well, I got brave & mixed them in with the Gingerbread Waffle Batter & YUM! The Ginger Sweet Bits add a little more flavor with a bit of chewy & it’s divine.
