Gingerbread Pancakes

I made these the other day for breakfast and they were a much bigger hit than the last time I made them. Super easy to make and definitely a fall food. I halved the recipe since I was just feeding three of us that morning.

Gingerbread Pancakes
serves 12

4 c buttermilk pancake mix
1 Tbsp each ground cinnamon and ginger
2 1/3 c water mixed with 1/2 c molasses

Stir spices into pancake mix, then add the molasses mixture and mix just until moistened. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake on the griddle. Cook 4-5 minutes, turning once, until puffed and lightly browned.

  1. how fun! did you use cookie cutters?

  2. No, they're pancake thingies (technical term, you know!), like cookie cutters but they've got a handle so you can pick them up once the first side is done. You can sort of see the handles sticking up in the first picture with the wood ends. We've got the four Christmas ones, a Mickey one, plus a couple more.
