very real gingerbread flavor! I served these with warm syrup, cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top with a dollop of whipped cream. They're very flavorful- maybe not such a good breakfast, more of a dessert. After cooking, they come out of the iron very cake-like and soft. But kind of crisp up when cooling. However they really soak up syrup like no other waffle I've ever seen! All in all, they are a wonderful taste of christmas no matter what time you choose to serve them!
