Gingerbread Waffles

Even though this recipe looks a little intense with the long ingredient list the end product is definitely worth it. Not only was it nice to have something different from the traditional waffle, but it was fun to inject a bit of holiday flavor into a routine breakfast item. Enjoy!

In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small bowl, beat the brown sugar and egg yolk until fluffy. Add the buttermilk, molasses, and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.

In another small bowl, beat the egg white and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into batter. Quickly spoon onto preheated waffle iron. Bake according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar, if desired.
