Easy and tasty!
I don’t know about your home, but here in ours, pancakes are a breakfast staple. We eat them all year round, including the holiday season. And when things get festive around here so do our pancakes…eggnog pancakes anyone? Or how about these Gingerbread Pancakes. Yum.
A perfect holiday breakfast treat, these pancakes are rich, flavourful and SO SO fluffy. But it’s the delicious spices that make these pancakes so good…ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg…all the spices that make up gingerbread.
For a nice decorative touch I like to sprinkle our pancakes with icing sugar (confectioner’s sugar). You don’t have to do this, but it definitely looks pretty. On these pancakes I also like to sprinkle a little bit of golden brown sugar…it adds a nice bit of crunch and flavour.
And don’t forget the drizzles of syrup!
A Cute Gingerbread Pancake Idea!
If you’re feeling really extra and want to make THE cutest gingerbread pancakes, use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to make little gingerbread cut outs. Totally not necessary, but totally adorable.
A fun idea for kids of all ages!
Just put a gingerbread man cookie cutter out on the breakfast table and let the little ones make cut outs in their pancakes…I guarantee they will love it and will definitely eat their pancakes!
I hope you love these Gingerbread Pancakes as much as we do! Enjoy.
Gingerbread Pancakes Recipe Tips:
- Molasses: I like to use ‘Fancy’ molasses in this recipe…the flavour is mild and perfect for pancakes.
- Brown Sugar: Why did I add brown sugar? I did this because molasses isn’t very sweet and the brown sugar adds a nice bit of sweetness to the pancakes.
- Garnish: Sprinkle with icing sugar, a bit of brown sugar and drizzle with syrup.
- Side Dishes: Make a Fruit Salad, and serve with bacon or sausages.
- Leftovers: You can freeze the leftovers. I like to put small squares of parchment paper between the pancakes before I freeze them.
