Gingerbread PancakesCourse: BreakfastCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
My kids love pancakes and I love making them from scratch. These are delicious and the house smells amazing. They go nicely with sliced fruit and good quality syrup. I do enjoy making breakfast for my family and for friends when they come stay. Something about a beautiful morning, a great cup of coffee and starting the day off right. Warm belly’s make warm bodies and wake up the mind.
1 1/2 cups flour (sometimes I do half white flour and 1/2 whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, optional
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in a bowl. Set aside. Beat the egg with the vanilla and molasses until incorporated. Stir in the water and apple sauce. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Making sure everything is combined.
- Heat a griddle until it’s hot and grease with butter or oil, and using a large ladle, ladle the batter onto the griddle. Allow each pancake to bubble and then flip over. Serve with hot syrup and fresh whipping cream.
- These freeze well as well. Allow to cool and place in zip lock bag separated with wax paper.
