Delicious and full of warm spices, these waffles are soft in texture, rich in flavor.
What Are Warm Spices
When you think of Fall what flavors come to your mind? Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger? Well there you have it, the four spices that lend their warm flavor this recipe.
We love to go camping in the Fall with the crisp mornings and cool evenings and the smell of our campfire is pure bliss.
Saigon cinnamon is what you want to use in this recipe, it’s bright, intensely fragrant, spicy and used by most bakers. You can find my personal favorite at the Savory Spice Shop. Nutmeg has a fresh, rich aroma and a woody slightly bittersweet flavor. Ceylon clove is my next pick, it has a bright and spicy flavor. It also has a high essential oil content that perfumes your batter when the oils are heated.
Ground ginger finishes the spice mix with its light, peppery, lemon aroma with a hot, spicy and sweet flavor. These spiced waffles remind me of a soft gingersnap cookie, but with a nice crisp crunch and fluffy inside.
Warm, cozy, comforting and truly a breeze to make, warm spiced waffles will be your go to breakfast or dinner at the campground.
