Gingerbread PancakesWe’ve been intrigued by gingerbread pancakes for some time. We checked out several recipes, did a little experimenting, and this is the recipe that we ended up with. These pancakes work fine with maple syrup but our favorite is our blueberry syrup.

Gingerbread Pancakes Recipe


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/3 cup molasses crystals
2 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup milk (plus more as needed for the right consistency—about 1 1/2 cups)

Note: Instead of molasses crystals, you may use liquid molasses. Do not use blackstrap or other strong-tasting molasses.

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices until well-dispersed.
2. In a large bowl, mix the molasses, eggs, sour cream, melted butter, and milk. Let the mixture sit for a minute to soften the molasses crystals and then stir until they are dissolved.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until the two are just combined, adding more milk if needed. Some lumps will remain.
4. Cook on a very hot griddle.
