Gingerbread Waffles

Happy Friday! Kory and I are spending the weekend with friends in Denver but I thought I would pop in and share these delicious Gingerbread Waffles I made last weekend. Cause, you know it’s the holidays and gingerbread is so on trend right now. 

So basically this is a traditional waffle recipe with a hit of molasses and loads of spice. Served with a spiced maple syrup would be even better! 

The trick with waffles is that you want to have your waffle maker turned up to the highest setting so you essentially “fry” the outside of the waffle as the inside cooks to a fluffy consistency. Mmm. Yum! 

You can top these waffles off with whatever you like, fruit, whipped cream, syrup, honey, you name it throw it on there (fried chicken anyone?!) 

So I hope you get in the kitchen and bake something delish this weekend! See ya next time! 

Happy baking!
