Gingerbread Waffles with Warm Applesauce

  • These always made the loveliest weekend breakfast for the family; the kitchen was so fragrant with the smell of spices and apples.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cups buttermilk (plain yogurt may be substituted; you can add a little milk or water to the batter if it seems too thick)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir together egg yolks, buttermilk, and the melted butter; stir into flour mixture.

Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.

Bake in a preheated, oiled waffle iron until golden.

Serve with butter and warm applesauce.
