Day 9 of 12 Christmas Countdown: Gingerbread Pancakes

There is nothing better than waking up in the morning with homemade pancakes already set on your breakfast table! Since it is the holidays, gingerbread seems to be a great reminder that Christmas is almost here!! This recipe made 12 normal stacks of pancakes...but I would suggest eating it with syrup (if you're into it) because the pancakes seemed to be a little plain without it. Happy Holidays! Follow me on this blog for more blog updates and please leave a comment is desired. Enjoy! :)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup molasses
3 tbsp vegetable oil
Pure Maple Syrup
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cinnamon: set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the egg and milk. Stir in the molasses and vegetable oil until smooth. Add in the flour and combine until the batter thickens (do not over mix). Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes until little bubbles start forming at the top (this will make the pancakes more fluffy when you are cooking it).
  3. While the batter is sitting, preheat your griddle with oil on medium high. Add 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan (or as much as you want), spreading with a spatula to make a circle. When the pancake has begun to rise up and bubble, flip over the pancake and cook the other side. Continue doing this until the batter is all made. 
  4. Set your wonderful plate and start stacking your warm pancakes. Add 1 tablespoon of butter onto each stack and pour the maple syrup over the pancakes. Enjoy!
