I saw this recipe on foodgawker yesterday and had to try it! The kids and I both LOVE it! I adapted it slightly.
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1 1/2c buttermilk
4 Tbsp butter, melted
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and egg yolks until creamy. Stir in buttermilk, molasses, and butter.
Into a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom.
In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks have formed.
Add liquid mixture into sifted dry ingredients and stir together. Fold in egg whites.
Cook according to waffle-iron instructions.
