there are many folks out there who really like the flavor of gingerbread, and what better way to have than as a waffle for breakfast. my waffle iron is reversible, so i have the option of belgian or thin waffles. i made these with the thin iron and they were really good.
we had alot left over so i stuf them in the freezer and they toast up quickly as an addition to a bacon and egg breakfast or something to grab on the way to work.
3 eggs separated (or egg substitute equivalent)
1 cup milk (or skim milk)
1/2 cup dark molasses
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1-3/4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 stick butter (or margarine) melted
Beat egg yolks with whisk and add milk, molasses and brown sugar. In a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder and spices. Add liquid ingredients to dry along with melted butter.
Beat egg whites (if using) until they form stiff peaks and fold into batter. Bake in a hot waffle iron.Posted by karine on February 05, 2007 | TrackBack
