I wanted to post this recipe before Christmas itself but unfortunately because of the cyclone and its after effects, I was without Internet for a fortnight. But no issues, waffles are great on any given day.
My kids prefer to eat them either hot or warm after they come home from school rather than eat it for breakfast.
The spice powders also provide them with enough warmth and helps the cold at bay especially during the cold weather.
I have served this with a strawberry syrup made by liquefying the organic strawberry jam instead of honey.
The tangy thick fruit syrup will mellow the sharp and pungent flavor of the ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
I did not have clove powder and normally do not stock it too.
But in this recipe I added just a drop of clove oil, which was even more flavorful and making the clove flavor to come out more pronounced.
If you want to make it totally vegan, then use any plant milk like soy, coconut, cashew or almond milk instead of cow milk.
If you do not have a waffle maker, you need not have to worry at all, as you can always just make them into pancakes using a griddle on stovetop.
