I've been wanting to make this recipe since I decided on my 2013 New Year's Resolution, to make one new-to-me recipe a week. Gingerbread waffles! Yum!
This is where I found the recipe: Gingerbread Waffles Recipe
The one problem with wanting to make this recipe? I don't own a waffle iron. So I borrowed one from my friend Natalie (thanks, Nat!). Natalie's waffle maker doesn't make your traditional square waffles - oh no, it makes HEART waffles, sort of like a flower. Fancy, right? :) And they're BIG! The recipe says it makes about 14 waffles; for Natalie's waffle maker, I ended up with 8.
I plated two waffles (big mistake, I should have only plated one - like I said earlier, they are BIG!). Added a few pieces of strawberries, and some maple syrup. All I needed was a little dusting of icing sugar. :)
These were delish! I could see these being for special occasions, or used as a dessert waffle. You can really taste the molasses. I'm going to freeze the leftovers, and reheat them in my toaster oven when the fancy strikes. Honestly? I don't think they're going to be in my freezer for very long, LOL.
Thanks for looking! And let me know if you give this recipe a try, will you? Thanks!
