Gingerbread Waffles.

The kids were now overly crazy about these waffles. They did smell wonderful, just like a gingerbread cookie.
4 eggs

1/3 cup sugar

1 cup molasses

1 cup buttermilk

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Whipped cream and fruit, optional



With an electric mixer, beat the eggs until they're light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugar, molasses, and buttermilk and mix until blended, about 1 minute more.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, spices, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in the butter.

Cover and refrigerate the batter overnight or cook immediately in a waffle iron until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with whipped cream and fruit, if you like. Makes 14.
