Recipe: Gingerbread Waffles

This is a favourite Christmas time recipe of mine that I love to make for some special little people and for family and friends in general. They are fairly sweet waffles to begin with, so a little maple syrup, whipped cream or icecream are great toppings.

1 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1 egg

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

3/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup currants

1-2 tablespoons crystallized ginger

In  a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. In another medium bowl, whisk together egg and brown sugar. Add molasses, buttermilk and butter, blend well. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients, add currants and ginger. Stir until just combined.

Preheat waffle maker. Pour 1/2 of batter at a time. Makes 8 waffles.
