I couldn’t assist however sneak in another pancakes-for-one recipe earlier than Christmas…

… and this one tastes simply. like. gingerbread.

You’ve acquired the nice and cozy gingerbread spices (cinnamon, ginger, cloves) and the completely important molasses.

Of all of the seasonal flavors, gingerbread – to me – is probably the most Christmasy. My household has at all times made gingerbread cookies across the holidays, and I clearly keep in mind sneaking bites and nibbles of the dough whereas it rested within the fridge (some issues by no means change…). My favourite cookie cutter form for making gingerbread was a rocking horse – neglect the basic gingerbread man! We’ve by no means iced our gingerbread cookies, preferring the unadulterated ginger and molasses taste of the plain cookies.

I don’t suppose I’ve made gingerbread cookies since shifting out of my mum or dad’s home 10 years in the past, however I used to be craving the homey aroma and flavors of the vacation basic.

Enter gingerbread pancakes.

For one, after all.

These mild and fluffy pancakes are candy sufficient to eat solo, however if you wish to mud them with powdered sugar and/or drizzle ‘em with maple syrup I definitely assist that call.

It’s the vacation season, in any case!
