Gingerbread Man Waffles

I still have a holly, jolly smelling batch of Gingerbread Spice from November’s Crazy Ingredient Challenge and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I added it to waffle batter for a fantastic holiday twist to a classic breakfast. I even make Gingerbread Sugar (instead of Cinnamon Sugar) for sprinkling over top!

The pear syrup was a great compliment and when that ran out I used bottled Strawberry syrup. I liked the tartness it added instead of piling on more sweet from regular maple syrup.

Gingerbread Man Waffles


  • 2 1/2 C flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 C milk
  • 1/2 C vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. In a large bowl sift together all dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and pour into a hot waffle iron and cook until golden. Serve with gingerbread spice sugar and syrup. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter if desired.
