From Our Kitchen to Yours: Gingerbread Pancakes

In 2006, one of our guests asked us to arrange a breakfast surprise for his wife during their stay. He sent us the recipe for her "favorite" pancakes, which are now one of our favorites too.

Gingerbread Pancakes

3 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. The mixture will be lumpy - make sure not to over mix!
Warm a greased griddle on medium heat. Spoon 1/4 cup batter onto the preheated griddle for each pancake. Cook until the top of each pancake is speckled with bubbles and some bubbles have popped open.

Then turn and cook until the underside is golden brown. Make sure not to flip pancakes more than once.

To serve, cover pancakes with fresh berries and top with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
