If you are looking for a festive holiday breakfast, these gingerbread waffles are sure to become one of your favorite!
Usually on Christmas morning I throw my overnight french toast casserole into the oven. But sometimes I feel like cooking and that’s when I resort to my holiday favorite, gingerbread waffles. I absolutely love the smell of gingerbread. It screams winter and Christmastime. I grab up anything gingerbread I can find – candles, coffee creamer and cookies during this time of year.
I use a simple waffle maker for this recipe. I actually grabbed it for 2 bucks at a rummage sale a few years ago and it was brand new. It’s not fancy and it does take almost 3 minutes to make 2 waffles, but it does the trick!
How to Make Gingerbread Waffles
My secret trick to using molasses, is to spray the measuring cup with cooking spray, then fill it with molasses and it will easily slide out into your bowl! No need to scrape the measuring cup as it will be empty!
I love to make a batch of these waffles and toss half of them into the freezer. Then I grab one, pop it into my toaster and I get that delicious gingerbread smell and flavor anytime I want it!
I’m almost certain after you make these, your house will smell amazing and everyone will be asking for more!
