Gingerbread Waffles

A couple of weeks ago, my daughter took the train in for a weekend visit. On this crisp fall weekend, she decided to rise early to make a bountiful breakfast for the family. The Gingerbread Waffle recipe was on the menu. The aroma in the kitchen was enough to pull everyone out of bed saying, “What is that delicious smell coming from the kitchen?” Sure enough, she had a tall stack of delicious looking waffles perched on the kitchen counter and ready for the taking. Eggs, coffee, and hash browns rounded out the meal. It’s always fun to have M come home for the weekend! She’s an excellent cook and we so enjoy seeing her.

We’ve made this recipe several times over the last couple of weeks. They are great to keep in the fridge to microwave for weekday mornings. Top them with homemade apple butter for an autumnal treat!

This recipe is from the cookbook entitled, Best Recipes from American Country Inns and Bed & Breakfasts, by Kitty and Lucian Maynard. I’ve made some changes to the recipe to add a little more flavor and of course, to substitute our own homemade maple syrup; removing the corn syrup in the original recipe.

My daughter doesn’t have a waffle iron of her own… So, guess what Santa may be bringing to her this year? Ho,ho,ho… gingerbread waffles!

    1. Oh my, I bought one at the resale shop and it works great. It was in its original box, never used. They aren’t very expensive at retail prices or on amazon. By the way, you could just pour mounds of batter into a pan or griddle and make gingerbread pancakes, as well. Thanks for your comment and have a great day!🙂

    1. Fantastic! Make sure to grease the waffle maker well so they don’t stick… I use a small rubber spatula to get under the waffle when it’s ready to pull off the heat. All the best!


    1. They are pretty darn good! My daughter slices them in half and brings them to work in her lunch. A swipe of apple butter on top really does the trick!


    1. She’s a sweet girl and has always loved cooking/baking along side me. All of my kids grew up around the kitchen counter/table. Cooking together, talking, laughing, and sharing a meal… Great memories are build within the walls of the family kitchen. 😊


  1. Last year I bought a mix from King Arthur Flour that made wonderful Gingerbread Waffles. I know what I’ll be doing THIS year! Many thanks!!! I’ve been searching for what seemed to be a good substitute for the very expensive mix.

    Virtual hugs,

    1. Judie,
      I hope this tastes as good as you would have hoped. I found an alternative recipe that often sticks to the waffle iron too much and the waffle breaks when removing it. This one is sturdy and easy to remove. Cheers!

    1. …Looks delish and smells delish as they are cooking. I make a big batch so they can be warmed in the microwave during the week. Great for a quick breakfast! We are currently tapping our maple trees for gorgeous maple syrup. A great combination of flavors include the gingerbread waffles, walnuts, and maple syrup. Enjoy your day!
