I have an overabundance of photos in this post but I guess that’s fitting because there is an overabundance of deliciousness in these Cranberry Pecan Gingerbread Waffles with Orange Syrup.
But really, can there be an overabundance of deliciousness? Or just so much deliciousness that you will be craving these for days. Bad example. These won’t last days.
My mother in law texted me a while back and said she just made Rachel Ray’s Gingerbread Waffle Recipe with this gluten free flour and they were “to die for.” So with a rating of 5 stars and 121 reviews, I knew the were a must try and a must Carlsbad Cravingize. I modified the recipe by incorporating the suggestions in the reviews and added pecans and cranberries to both the batter and the topping because that seemingly simple ornamentation takes these gingerbread waffles OVER-THE-TOP.
I love nothing more than citrus to brighten up gingerbread and cranberries, so I topped them with sweet, silky Easy Orange Syrup. You will be drinking this stuff, it is so good! So good that I can guarantee it is 100 times better than what you are imagining right now. At least, it was for me.
The ending result of this collaboration of flavors is Christmas morning worthy Gingerbread Waffles that taste like gingerbread cookies full of molasses, dark brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla.
Waffles that are super moist from the pumkin puree and soft and fluffy, (don’t expect a crisp texture on the outside), like a gingerbread cookie.
Waffles that fill every nook and cranny of your home with the aroma of gingerbread cookies.
Waffles boasting the tantalizing combination of sweetly tart cranberries, crunchy pecans balanced by the molasses brown sugar waffles and the sweet orange syrup. Seriously, this combination is crazy! Please try it with all these elements, because they will take you to overabundant deliciousness land.
