Happy Happy Blogmas Thursday everybody!!! Y’all it totally didn’t even dawn on me until this morning that this coming weekend is the last weekend before Christmas?! How the heck did that happen?! I had finally started to feel caught up with all of my shopping because you know, in my head I had another full 2 weeks left and then boom, not so much…
Where the heck has the time gone?! Sorry, I realize have already used a lot of exclamation marks, but I just want y’all to get the full effect of panic that is going on in my brain haha. I don’t know why, but I feel like this year has been especially hard to find things to buy for my friends and family. Normally, I have ongoing lists of ideas months in advance, but this year, nada…
…and I just want to point out that everyone’s wish lists that I requested have been quite sparse (I’m looking at you, mom and dad). Anyways, let’s get to the good stuff shall we? I would like to introduce you to my new BFF’s these Gingerbread Waffles. Oh yes, these are precisely as delicious as you would expect. The batter was the first indication that these would be amazing because it’s more like cake batter, thick, decadent, tons of flavor.
I’m not a fan of the word moist by any means, but these waffles turned out deliciously moist with tons of gingerbread flavor. Definitely expect these to cook in your waffle iron quite a bit longer than a normal waffle, but they’re sooo worth the wait. I hope you get to make these bad boys your next breakfast or brunch, thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
First, sugar, butter and molasses into your bowl…

- 1/2 Cup of Unsalted Butter, Softened.
- 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar.
- 1 Cup of Molasses.
- 3 Eggs.
- 2 Cups of Whole Milk.
- 3 1/2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour.
- 3 Teaspoons of Baking Powder.
- 3 Teaspoons of Cinnamon.
- 2 Teaspoons of Ground Ginger.
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt.
- Dash of Ground Cloves.
- Dash of Nutmeg.

- Preheat your waffle iron on high heat.
- With a handheld or stand mixer with paddle attachment, in a large mixing bowl, place your butter, sugar and molasses and mix together thoroughly.
- Now add your eggs and milk and mix again.
- Now add the remainder of your ingredients and mix until it's just coming together.
- Liberally spray your waffle iron with non-stick baker's or butter spray, and fill your waffle iron with enough batter to cover it, since this is a really thick batter, let it sit for about 1 minute before closing the top and continue to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until done.
- Serve with butter and syrup and enjoy!!!
