Author Notes: One day the idea of gingerbread pancakes gripped me. I couldn't find a good recipe so I created this one. The pancakes are fluffy and light but taste just like the best gingerbread.coconutlime

Makes 6 pancakes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  1. Whisk together the egg, molasses, butter, sugar and buttermilk in a small bowl or measuring cup until smooth. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the spices, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly whisk in the egg/milk mixture. There should be no pockets of unmixed flour or large lumps. Batter will be rather thick.
  2. Allow the batter to sit on the counter while you spray a frying pan or griddle with nonstick spray or melt 1 tablespoon of butter to coat. Heat the pan so that it feels warm when you hover your hand over it. Add about 1/4 cup of the batter into the middle. Cook until bubbles begin to appear and pop. Flip. Cook for about 2 minutes. Both sides should be golden brown.

I made these on Sunday and they were really delicious. Thank you. I tried them first with homemade appelstroop and then with maple syrup. The appelstroop was perfect and not as sweet as the maple. Both are wonderful. These will be a regular Sunday breakfast this fall and winter.

Thanks for the recipe! I made these for my family the day after Christmas. Big, big hit! For the flour I used whole wheat, so they were heavy, but the nuttiness of the flour really enhanced the spices. I served it with a lemon and orange cardamom syrup and whipped cream with vanilla. Really nice combination.My mom and I have decided to give the dry mix and a little jar of syrup as Christmas gifts next year. Thanks again!

The spices in gingerbread so yummy, I love that it is replicated so well in this pancake. I've saved this recipe for holiday season!
