Gingerbread Pancakes

Confession time! I'm a breakfast food addict...I could eat breakfast food for every meal for the rest of my life and be completely happy. I love all sort of pancakes, but I'm always looking forward to trying new things with them. I found a recipe for gingerbread pancakes, and I decided to go ahead and give them a try. I had to modify the recipe a bit as I found the batter was too thin. Next time I think I'll just cut down the liquid ingredients a bit, but this time, I just added some extra flour to compensate.

Gingerbread Pancakes

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 6 Tbsp molasses
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk together molasses, oil, buttermilk and eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. If your batter looks too thin, add a little bit of flour until it looks the right consistency (using the original recipe, mine came out very watery so I just added flour as necessary).

Heat griddle over medium/medium-high heat. Drop by 1/4 cup full onto preheated griddle. When pancakes start to bubble, flip and finish cooking through. Serve with butter, maple syrup, and powdered sugar.

See...even my little guy thought they were delicous!

Yeah, it made about 3 dozen of them, which worked out because I was feeding 5 people, I froze the leftovers.
