Did you know Christmas is 9 days away? 9!! It’s crazy to think this year is almost over. With Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been feeling very festive lately. We’ve rode our bikes around looking at Christmas lights, I’ve done some Christmas shopping, and we went to a Christmas themed birthday party. This really is my favorite time of year! The best part will be going home in a few days to see my family. I can’t wait!

In my family, my sister and I were are always up early on Christmas morning. Even when we both moved out, we’d still head over to my parents house early in the morning to open presents and spend time together before everyone went their separate ways.

Gingerbread Waffles with Bison Brewing Gingerbread

A good breakfast usually follows the presents at our house. My Gingerbread waffles will be a great addition this year. Served with a side of yummy bacon and we’ll have a meal. It is the holiday after all. Calories don’t count on Christmas… Right?

For this recipe, I used the new waffle iron I bought Huck, as a joke gift, for his birthday. They’re light and fluffy with lots of flavor, and they freeze well. I made a full batch of these and put the leftover in the freeze. In the morning, when I want more, I’ll just pop them in the toaster like the store bought waffles. These are way better, though.

Gingerbread Waffle Bison Brewing Co

I used Bison Brewing Co. Gingerbread Ale in this recipe. It’s a holiday Porter brewed with Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Ginger. If you can’t find a Gingerbread beer, look for a Stout or Porter with cinnamon or nutmeg. I’ve only seen two Gingerbread beers here in South Florida, and I cant remember the other ones name. If we can get Bison here, I’m sure you guys can find it easily.

You can also use Whole Wheat or half and half Flours for a healthier waffle. My baking supplies are low right now, so I just used regular AP Flour. King Arthur’s Flour is the best by the way.

The batter for this recipe isn’t very sweet, either. Once you add {Real} Maple Syrup and the Cinnamon Butter, they’re perfect. If the waffles themselves were sweeter, I think once the syrup was added, it would be to much. So, keep that in mind if you do not like syrup and want a sweeter waffle batter.

Yesterday, Huck and I went to the beach to take our Christmas Card Photo. We like rubbing in the fact it’s warm here and cold every where else! The best part is we’re wearing short and flip flops in the middle of December! LOVE IT!

I’ll be back soon to share our adventure to Fort Pierce and Sailfish Brewing Company.

What is your favorite Christmas morning meal?


Gingerbread Waffles with Cinnamon and Maple Butter

Serves 16


  • 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 2 Large Eggs (Separate the whites and yolks)
  • 1 cup Beer (Stout or Porter {I used Bison Brewing Co. Gingerbread Beer})
  • 1/4 cup Melted Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Soften Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoon Real Maple Syrup


Combined Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt together.
Add Egg Whites to a mixer with a wire whisk. Beat until they form stiff peaks about 1-3 minutes. {When you dip the whisk into the whites, they should stick to the whisk and form a peak.}
While the Egg are mixing, combined Beer, Melted Butter, and Sugar. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir.
Add the Egg Whites to the bowl. Carefully stir the White into the mix.
Prep heat Waffle Iron. Once preheat, add waffle batter. {I have a small/cheap waffle maker and it's 1/8 cup of batter per waffle. All waffle irons are different.}
For my waffle iron, it took 3-4 minutes. I like mine a little crunchy.
Combined Butter, Cinnamon, and Maple Syrup. Serve over warm Waffles.
