Wet ingredients

  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 Tablespoons salted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Molasses

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Gingerbread spice mix
  • 1/2 teaspoons Baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar


  • Berries
  • Chopped Nuts
  • Maple syrup


  • Mix wet ingredients together and set aside
  • Mix all dry ingredients together then add dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix to combine
  • Turn on the waffle maker allow to heat up
  • Spray baking spray on the waffle iron
  • Scoop about 2/3 cup of batter into the waffle maker. Cover and allow to cook for about 3-4 mins depending on your waffle maker. Keep an eye on the light indicator if your waffle maker has that option.
  • Transfer cooked waffles onto a paper towel lined plate or a cooling rack.
  • Repeat process till all the batter is used up
  • Enjoy with maple syrup or any topping of your choice


  • If you don't have gingerbread mix you can make yours. I have included a link to my gingerbread spice mix in the post. Alternatively use 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg.
  • If you are making a large batch, you can keep the waffles warm in the oven while you make the rest. Turn on your oven at 200 F keep waffles in there on a cookie sheet while you make more waffles.
  • Waffles take about 3-4 mins depending on your waffle maker. Be sure to check your manufacturer's instructions.
  • I recommend you turn on your waffles maker just before adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients so it doesn't get too hot when I put my batter in. If your waffle maker heats up slowly, then turn the waffle maker on before mixing your batter.
