“A far cry from your average waffles, I think the ginger makes all the difference. Use only fresh ginger, and grate fresh right before using. I usually can't find molasses, so I use dark corn syrup instead. Cooking times will vary, dependent on waffle maker. From the Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook.”
