Need a fun and delicious idea for Christmas breakfast? How about some gingerbread pancakes? I used a pancake mold, but regular round pancakes would taste just as good!
I used this recipe from the Magnolia Cafe that I found on www.Foodnetwork.com.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brewed coffee
2 1/2 cups white unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
In a large bowl, mix eggs and brown sugar until well combined. Add buttermilk, water and brewed coffee, and stir to combine. In another large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Stir in the melted butter.
Grease a griddle or heavy skillet. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat and then add the batter, by ladle-fulls. Cook until little bubbles appear around the edges of the pancake, and then flip. Cook on the second side until golden brown and cooked through in the middle. Serve immediately.
