I don't always cook breakfast; in fact, more often than not, we just have a bowl of cereal or yogurt etc...but I was in the mood for something a little more and I had seen this recipe somewhere not too long ago. Thought they had to be delicious so I decided to give them a shot. Oh goodness! and were they ever!! We both thought they were amazing....they just may become our Christmas morning tradition.
yield: around 14 waffles
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups flour
2 tsp ginger
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
whipped cream & fresh fruit, optional *
With mixer beat the eggs until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add sugar, molasses & buttermilk & mix until well blended.
Sift together flour, spices, salt, baking soda & baking powder. Add to the egg mixture & stir until smooth. Stir in butter. Cover & refrigerate overnight or cook immediately in a waffle iron until golden brown. Serve with whipped cream and fresh fruit if you like.
* I didn't have whipping cream on hand so we used mascarpone cheese that I had mixed a small amount of honey in, fresh fruit & also a little drizzle of maple syrup
I just made a half recipe for us and we had plenty. Stuck the leftover ones in the freezer for a quick breakfast in the future. Pop them in the toaster until heated through...almost as good as fresh-made. =)

Mighty God, Eternal Father,
Prince of Peace.
Blessings of love & peace!
