These waffles will make your whole house smell like gingerbread - my family loves them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together.
  3. In a seperate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, molasses and yolks.
  4. In the clean, dry bowl of your mixer, whip the whites with the sugar until they hold firm peaks.
  5. Blend the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients just until they are combined.
  6. Stir in the melted butter.
  7. Then gently fold in the whites.
  8. Follow the directions for using your waffle iron to cook the waffles.
  9. Notes: These waffles are especially nice made in a heart shaped waffle iron, but if you don't have one, a regular waffle iron will do.
  10. I like to top them with either sauteed apples, homemade applesauce, or for a treat, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some chocolate syrup.

Oh boy! I reviewed these a long time ago, went to make them again this past weekend, and realized my review never went through! I made these during my thanksgiving break at home sometime in November *LAUGH* and my family LOVED them, and begged me to make them several times while I was home over my break. I will be making these on special occasions from now on. Thanks for this recipe and sorry for the delayed review.. hehe :-P

I have been making these for years, and just realized that I'd not reviewed them here. DH they taste like a fine pastry. They are so aromatic and truly special.
