Makes 6-8 pancakes

For the Carrot Pancakes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots

For the Honey Ginger Syrup

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  1. In a small sauce pan over low heat, add honey, ginger paste, and sugar and stir well until combined. Let flavors mingle and marinate while you make the pancakes, being careful not to burn.
  2. Preheat a large pan or skillet over medium-low heat. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs, and add the milk, stirring to combine. Stir in the butter and brown sugar.
  4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry. Add the shredded carrots and stir, being careful to mix only to the point that the batter has completely incorporated the dry ingredients. It is okay if there are a few lumps!
  5. Add a teaspoon of butter or oil to the skillet (optional if using a non-stick pan). Ladle a 1/2 cup of batter into the skillet at a time to make each pancake, and flip after 2-4 minutes, getting the pancakes nicely browned on each side.
  6. Drizzle pancakes with honey-ginger syrup, and enjoy!
