  1. I made this recipe for a Holiday Breakfast for the office. It was a major hit! I even was able to make the batter the night before, so I was ready to go the next morning.
  2. what wonderful waffles! we all love gingerbread and this tasted just the same. we put the bananas and whipped cream on it, then decided we needed a little maple syrup, too. we enjoyed them on a relaxing morning before christmas.
  3. Great recipe. I've tried quite a few but this is by far the best so far. Five star batter. It is moist and silky smooth almost like cake frosting. It handles and spreads so easily on the hot iron. Taste is definitely 5 stars. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. There were none left. Thanks Divinemom5, I'll look for more of your recipies.
  4. These were very good! I think they seemed a little dry so we added more butter on top and that helped. Next time I think I'll use a little more butter in the mix. Overall they were a hit with my husband and my one year old too!
  5. These are an absolute MUST TRY! They are sooooo good! We've never actually made it to the point of putting anything on them....I've made them three times now and each time, the kids and I eat them before they even get to a plate! Thanks for broadening my waffle horizons!


  1. We just finished eating these up for Christmas morning breakfast and they were a big hit. I used applesauce instead of the margarine to cut out the extra fat and no one noticed at all. Served hot with Cool Whip Free, hot applesauce and real maple syrup. Delicious!
  2. My substitutions (RiceDream 'milk' for buttermilk & golden syrup for molasses) must've put me off on the wrong foot. I had massive batter-overflow problems on the waffle iron (oh yeah, this was a FUN morning!) -- just couldn't get the quanities right -- and then the waffles ended up quite moist, more like pancakes.... But once I tasted these with Creme Fraiche & syrup, I forgave myself for the substitutions! These were tastey!
  3. Excellent recipe! The owner's manual for my waffle maker has a recipe for gingerbread waffles, but I couldn't find it this morning, so I looked online instead. I'm glad I did! I mixed just a touch of maple syrup into plain yogurt and used it as a dip. It was really delicious.
