Spice waffles with mulled wine cherries! I love breakfast. I love eating breakfast, especially on weekends when I can get up early and have enough time at hand to make something special. I really enjoy making these waffles for a breakfast or bunch. Do you like using cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. also in January and February? Here in Germany you can buy already prepared spices mixes for gingerbread and I love buying in bulk shortly before Christmas to have the spices also available in January and February. I love making waffles with this spice mix, especially between Christmas and New Year’s when people are on vacation and are more relaxed.
As is tradition in Germany, we are celebrating the advent, waiting eagerly for Christmas. Therefore each Advent Sunday (there are always four in total, leading up to Christmas) is super special and for that reason I brought along some ginger cookies or Spekulatius, the German name for these nicely spiced cookies. I decided to make them with a neat little cookie cutter, it was so much fun cutting out my blog name. Look at it, such fine and thin lines! If you are scared of sugar cookies or shortbread, don’t be, I give a lot of tips in this blog post.
