One week ago today most families across America were gathering with friends and family to enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving meal. And whether you’re ready or not, Christmas will be here in three weeks! It is amazing how quickly the holidays can sneak up on a person.
During the busyness of the season I love to create memories in our kitchen. Whipping up hot chocolate, baking and decorating cookies, preparing memorable homemade weekend breakfasts, and hosting evening holiday parties with great food is what I look forward to the most during the holidays.
Today I have a wonderful homemade gingerbread pancake recipe for you that I absolutely love. These fluffy pancakes are made with sour cream and the perfect blend of spices to put you in the holiday mood. The batter is made with a touch of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. What I appreciate the most about these pancakes is their subtle gingerbread flavor, which is not overpowering yet noticeably present. I find kids generally do not like strong ginger flavored foods (with perhaps the exception of cookies) yet they love these pancakes.
Whether you are hosting family over the Winter break or just want to treat your family to a holiday themed breakfast (or brunch), these memorable pancakes are sure to delight those who will enjoy them.
