Great waffles!! Just loved the flavor of these waffles, especially with just adding a bit of butter and then whipped cream, reminded me so much of my Mom's Ginger Bread recipe, that she served warm and then we spread on butter. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for "For your consideration" game.

Pure fall spice perfection! These turned out so tender and yummy! I will try with whole wheat flour next time for a more robust waffle! Thanks for posting, these made a rainy fall day so much better!
