Gingerbread Waffles
What's your Take?

This aromatic batter is slightly sweeter and more flavorful than the classic buttermilk. And whether you're celebrating Easter or just gathering with a group of friends, the delicious, make-ahead recipe will let you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your guests.

What you'll need

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Whipped cream and fruit, optional

How to make it

  1. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs until they're light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugar, molasses, and buttermilk and mix until blended, about 1 minute more.

  2. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, spices, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in the butter.

  3. Cover and refrigerate the batter overnight or cook immediately in a waffle iron until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with whipped cream and fruit, if you like. Makes 14.
