It’s that time again! Monday means, it’s time for. What are we craving this week?
Our theme this week is Christmas Dinners and Holiday Food Traditions. More on that in a minute.
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.
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.

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.

Slowly stir the molasses mixture into the flour and spice mixture. Stir just until combined, there will be some lumps.
