  • 2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the molasses mixture. Mix until smooth.
  • 3. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Serve hot with chocolate sauce.
  • 4.To make chocolate sauce: In a saucepan, combine water, 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla and 2 tablespoons butter; stir until smooth.
  • *Note: have made this on several occasions -- but serve it with Nutmeg Sauce. They are awesome! I even had to make some so my son could share with co-workers cause he raved about them so much! 1/2 c white sugar 1 c boiling water 1 1/2 Tbsp flour 1 1/2 Tbsp butter salt 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp nutmeg combine all dry ingredients in saucepan. Add boiling water stirring constantly. cook over low heat till thick and smooth. remove from heat, add butter and vanilla. (I find I need to at least double this recipe!).
  • Is A nice change from the ordinary, however the gingerbread texture tends to make these waffles not as light as waffles usually are.
  • The kids loved this when we served it as one of the dishes at our Christmas Eve brunch. It had to be the all time hit for the kids. I thinned the batter some though and it seemed to work well.
