Gingerbread Waffles

I have to say that aside from my Brownie Waffles or Savory Oatmeal, this may very well be my new favorite breakfast.

The flavoring in these is perfect. Not too strong, not too weak. Top with a bit of Plum Butter or maple syrup and your day will be off to an amazing start!

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it tastes a little like have gingerbread cookies for breakfast! And who wouldn’t love that?

  1. These look delicious! Is 5 cups of milk correct?! That just seems like a lot of milk, so I wanted to check. Thanks!

      That’s what I used when I made them. If you are at a different altitude than me, it could be slightly different. If you aren’t comfortable with using that much, you can always play it by ear and start with 3 or 4.

      1. I made this with 5 cups of milk and had a mix thinner than pancakes! So I added 1/2 cup of flour and then another and then another! I had to dump the whole thing! It didn’t make waffles – or pancakes, which I also tried since I put so much money into the batter! The waffle maker didn’t even recognize anything was in it for a long time b/c it was soooooooooo thin! And there was no gingerbread taste at all! Very disappointed!

          Tracey – I’m so sorry to hear that! I’ve made this several times and I’ve never had a problem with it. Did you make any substitutions at all?

  2. graciouspantry says:

    I’m not sure what you mean. Are you looking for a metric measurement?

  3. graciouspantry says:

    I’m sorry, I don’t know the first thing about gluten free cooking/baking. Try Elana’s Pantry or The Gluten Free Goddess. Both are excellent web sites.

  4. Danica @ IPNP says:

    Yum!! Definitely pinned this recipe! 🙂

  5. Eileen Kelly says:

    1 cup of milk is the equivalent of 250 ml or 8 fluid ounces in a liquid measuring cup. If you are looking for other measurements, you can do a google search for conversion charts. Just plug in the amounts in the recipe and it will give you the equivalents.

  6. I believe to make it gluten free you can use spelt flour instead of the whole wheat flour.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I don’t believe so. Spelt is a type of wheat.

  7. graciouspantry says:

    Yes, it’s definitely and American thing. I think we tried moving to metric a while back but most people were too stubborn to make the change.

  8. Bobbie Zajkowski says:

    I don’t have a waffle maker. Do you think this batter could work for pancakes? Thanks!

  9. graciouspantry says:

    It’s for binding.

      My pleasure! Glad you enjoyed them!

  11. graciouspantry says:

    Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it!

  12. Lisa Shuffield says:

    This looks amazing! One quick question tho…. what do you think I can use to substitute the Oat Flour?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Just use 3 cups of the white whole wheat flour.

  13. graciouspantry says:

    Sounds wonderful!

  14. graciouspantry says:

    Awesome! 🙂

  17. Do you add the entire spice mix to the recipe?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Valerie – It’s been a while and I can’t remember how much that spice blend recipe makes. But for my recipe, I used about 1 tsp of the mix.

  18. How much Lebkuchen Spices do you use?

    I can’t seem to find a measurement.



    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julie – Sorry about that. Just added it back in. Start small and add more as needed. It’s pretty strong stuff.
