If you have been reading here for a while, you will know that I really love pancakes and waffles. Thank goodness the kids do too, they would never turn down pancakes or waffles, whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
These waffles had a great gingerbread flavour, but because of the molasses in the batter, you have to be sure to grease your waffle iron. Mine is a non-stick iron, but these still wanted to hold onto the griddle a little. So, have your spray bottle of oil ready when making these.
Although you could serve these gingerbread waffles with a cinnamon whipped cream, the pear sauce really adds a great flavour. Maybe you could still serve the cinnamon whipped cream on top of the pear sauce. Mmm…

Wow, these are so good! I made these for Christmas Eve breakfast and they were a hit.
Thanks for sharing!
I have a quick question about gf waffles. Can I measure out the dry ingredients, store them in baggies and freeze them till I’m ready to use them? I usually make five batches of waffles at a time and freeze them, which works really well, but with five littles, I don’t always have time to stand there and make that many….or I forget. 😀 So I was brainstorming on other ways to make breakfast quicker. Thanks!
