Gingerbread Pancakes

It’s that time again! Monday means, it’s time for This Week’s Cravings. What are we craving this week?

Our theme this week is Christmas Dinners and Holiday Food Traditions. More on that in a minute.

I’m proud to be co-hosting This Week’s Cravings along with Tina over at MOMS CRAZY COOKING, Kristen from From My Tiny Kitchen, Angie from Big Bear’s Wife  & Kristi from Veggie Converter.

Now, onto my yummy recipe and the story behind it.

Yes, I know you don’t all love a story, so feel free to scroll down for the actual Gingerbread Pancakes recipe.

Gingerbread Pancakes

When I saw the theme for Christmas Dinners, I panicked a little, since I don’t actually make Christmas dinner at our house – we go over the river and through the woods (yes literally) to my mom’s house each year for Christmas. And our Christmas Eve is not like anyone elses I’m sure. We usually create an odd hodge podge of foods and advertisers and we don’t usually do the same thing twice. So what in the world was I going to post?

Then I realized that it also said Holiday Food Traditions. And that opens up a whole new area, because we do Holiday Food Traditions, no problem. Christmas morning every year, we make a huge breakfast with our favorite egg, sausage and cheese casserole, hash brown casserole and these delicious Gingerbread Pancakes.

Now, I can’t really remember where I got this recipe, but we’ve tweaked it and modified it over the years, so its really ours by now. I hope your family will enjoy it as much as ours does.

Gingerbread Pancakes

(printable recipe below)

  • 1 ½ c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 c. milk

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt. Add the ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves and the nutmeg. In another mixing bowl, beat the egg with the vanilla and the molasses until it is all smooth. Whisk in the milk until it is completely incorporated with the molasses mixture.  Slowly stir the molasses mixture into the flour and spice mixture. Stir just until combined, there will be some lumps.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 c. milk

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt. Add the ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves and the nutmeg.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the egg with the vanilla and the molasses until it is all smooth. Whisk in the milk until it is completely incorporated with the molasses mixture.
  • Slowly stir the molasses mixture into the flour and spice mixture. Stir just until combined, there will be some lumps.
  • Heat your griddle over med-high heat. Brush your griddle with some butter. Add about ¼ cup of batter to the griddle for each pancake. Lower the heat just a bit to about medium. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and they begin to brown just a bit around the edges, this is about 2 minutes, and then flip them over and cook them on the other side for around 2 minutes more.
  • Watch them closely as they do burn more easily than regular pancakes.

Gingerbread pancakes?! This sounds amazing and is something I can definitely rustle up with ingredients here in Korea! Oh yeah! Plus, it's all Christmassy and that makes me feel sparkly and aglow with holiday cheer. Tra la la la la! :)

My gosh. I wished that I have seen this post before Christmas so that I was able to cook it for the relatives but I think i would still try this one out for a change and give that pancake a twist. Thanks for sharing. :)
