Gingerbread Waffles; from Midwest Living

2 c. all purpose flour

1 t. cinnamon

1 ½ t baking soda

1 ½ t. ground ginger

½ t. ground cloves

½ t. salt

3 eggs yolks, lightly beaten

1 c. molasses

½ c. buttermilk

½ c. butter, melted

2 egg whites

THE PREP: Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, cloves, and salt. Combine egg yolks, molasses, buttermilk, and butter. Add to flour mixture and stir until moistened. It will be lumpy, set it aside. In small bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in beaten egg whites, leaving few fluffs of egg whites. Do not over-mix. Cook the batter in a waffle maker according to its directions.

Makes about 4-5 waffles, depending on your waffle maker.
