On Christmas morning, I like to have something that is really easy to throw together for breakfast. Who wants to be trying to prepare a meal when there are gifts to open?!??!
I wanted to find something with a "Christmas" taste, and thought what is better than gingerbread? And one of the easiest breakfast foods to prepare is waffles. They can even be made the night before and placed in the oven for about 10 minutes to warm in the morning.
To make these delicious waffles, you'll need....
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
Heat your waffle iron while you are preparing your batter.
Begin by whisking together the dry ingredients....flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, milk and sour cream.
Combine the two bowls of ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth.
Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto your warm waffle iron and cook until the waffle is golden brown. This recipe makes enough batter for four good sized waffles, but it can be doubled or tripled if needed.
You can top your waffles with a dollop of sour cream, some syrup, berry jam.....Whatever you'd like!
