Make some gingerbread waffles for breakfast! A touch spicy, a touch sweet. They’re perfect for the holidays.
When I think of the holidays, gingerbread is always the first thing that comes to mind. I can just close my eyes and smell the sweet aromas of spices and ginger swirling in my kitchen right now. Mmm…
I often start off the holidays with a loaf of gingerbread cake, but this year I thought I’d add a fun twist by making gingerbread waffles instead!
These gingerbread waffles have a nice sweetness. They’re great with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar over top. Of course, if you want a more decadent holiday breakfast, feel free to pile on the whipped cream and maple syrup!
If you want to make a gluten-free version of these waffles, you can replace the all-purpose flour with oat flour or gluten-free all-purpose flour. I’ve tested it both ways, and find this to be a straightforward and easy swap.
For extra-crispy waffles, make sure to use butter in the batter — don’t be tempted to substitute it with oil. The waffles won’t be crispy when you first remove them out of the waffle iron but will crisp up as they cool.
Grab a cup of tea or coffee and let’s enjoy some gingerbread waffles together!
