Gingerbread Waffles with Caramel Syrup

These are so fun and Christmasy not to mention YUMMY!!! I love finding recipes to liven things up here!

Gingerbread Waffles
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup molasses
6 TB melted butter
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Mix by hand brown sugar and egg yolks until well blended. Stir in buttermilk, molasses, and butter. In separate bowl combine all dry ingredients. Mix in with wet. Beat egg whites and fold into batter. Do no over mix!

Caramel Syrup
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 TB corn syrup
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla

In a large pot combine butter, buttermilk, syrup, sugar, and soda. Stir and bring to a boil. Boil for 7 minutes constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Keep stirring until it turns into a dark Carmel colored syrup. **Note, Use a Large pot because the soda makes the syrup boil up high**

I whipped up some homemade whip cream with a hint of cinnamon in it...Really good. (made sure I ran today too)
