1.  Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, salt and ground ginger in a large mixing bowl; whisk until well blended. Stir in the zest and candied ginger. Add the liquid ingredients and whisk until just smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.

2.  Preheat the Cuisinart® Breakfast Central to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).

3.  Pour 1½ heaping cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
