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.

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 cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 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

    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.

    2. REMOVE from the heat or keep warm until ready to serve. If you use a small (1-quart size) saucepan, the sauce will thicken without overcooking.

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

    4. POUR one cup batter onto the center of a greased, heated waffle maker. Bake for about 5 minutes or until the steaming stops. Remove carefully.

    You can serve the waffles hot from the iron, or keep them warm by placing them on a rack over a baking sheet in a 200°F oven while preparing the remaining waffles.

    5. SERVE with warm blueberry-orange sauce.
