Here’s a nice surprise for the long Christmas weekend: gingerbread waffles. Prep time is just 15 minutes, plus 15 minutes to cook.

Imported fresh blueberries are pricey in the winter, so feel free to use frozen berries or other, more affordable berries.

To make pancakes instead of waffles, follow the recipe below and reduce the milk to 1/4 cup.

RECIPE: GINGERBREAD WAFFLES WITH BLUEBERRY-
ORANGE SAUCE

Ingredients For 8 Servings

For The Waffles

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 package (6 ounces) blueberries
  •  

    For The Blueberry-Orange Sauce

  • 1 package (6 ounces) blueberries
  • 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  •  
    Preparation

    1. MAKE the sauce: Combine the blueberries, juice, sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat or keep warm until ready to serve. If you use a small (1-quart size) saucepan, the sauce will thicken without overcooking.

    2. STIR together the flour, sugar, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk in eggs, milk and butter until smooth. Stir in the blueberries.

    3. POUR one cup batter onto the center of a greased, heated waffle maker. Bake about 5 minutes or until the steaming stops. Remove carefully. Serve waffles hot from the iron, or keep them warm by placing on a rack over a baking sheet in a 200°F oven while preparing the remaining waffles.

    4. SERVE with warm blueberry-orange sauce.
