I really wanted this recipe to be good, but it tasted like molasses, not gingerbread, and I didn't even use the whole 1/2 cup called for. Way too cloyingly sweet, none of the spice came through.

Fantastic recipe! We used butter and powdered sugar for a topping (maple syrup competes too much).

My wife loves all things ginger - and she really loved these. Very tasty; and they re-heat well, too!

We tried these waffles this morning - delicious. They are very moist and I put the waffles into a 200 degree oven for about five minutes to firm and crisp them a bit. They were a hit with my whole family.
