Gingerbread Pancakes

Ladies and gents, this post is all about Christmas morning! What is that special breakfast that you make your family Christmas morning? Well, if you’ve got nothing planned this year, I suggest these fluffy, aromatic Gingerbread Pancakes!

Growing up, this is how Christmas morning played out in my house:

My brother would wake me up and an ungodly hour, and we’d make our way to the living room where our stocking were no longer hanging, but leaning against some furniture because of how STUFFED they were (which. was. AWESOME). We’d open them with excitement, and show off our little gifts to each other (and sneak in a few choice pieces of candy of course). After we got thru the massive stocking, we’d watch cartoons until our parents woke up. Then, breakfast (and dishes, UGH), showers (come on!) and then finally: PRESENTS.

That was our routine every year- so many good memories.

Anyway- haha! Back to breakfast! The one thing about our Christmas breakfast, was that it was usually a nice scrambled eggs breakfast (and that ain’t bad!), but let’s get more creative, shall we??

These Gingerbread Pancakes are so easy to make, very little room for error (you can’t really mess these up). Be sure to use a non-stick pan along with some cooking spray to make your life that much easier.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Yield 8-10 big pancakes (serves 2-4)

Flour 1 ¼ cup

Baking powder 1 tsp

Baking soda ½ tsp

Salt ½ tsp

Cinnamon 1 tsp

Ginger 1 tsp

Cloves 1/8 tsp

Allspice 1/8 tsp

Nutmeg 1/8 tsp

Sugar ¼ cup

Molasses 2 T

Eggs 2

Butter, melted 4 T (2 oz.)

Milk ¾ cup

Maple syrup, butter, and powdered sugar for toppings (optional)

Directions:

Preheat a griddle pan or griddle to medium heat.

In a medium size bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, salt, spices, leavening).

In another medium bowl, combine all the wet ingredients (sugar, milk, molasses, eggs, melted butter)

Now, combine wet with dry- and do not overmix! You want this batter to be nice and clumpy, makes for fluffier pancakes!

Next step, spray your nonstick griddle pan with some cooking spray, and spoon or scoop ¼ cup of batter on. These should a few minutes (about 2-3 minutes) on the first side. Once the edges appear to be cooked, flip over with a flat spatula, and cook for 1 more minute. Continue to do this until you’re out of batter.

Stack as desired, cover in butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar – OR ALL THREE! Enjoy!
