The holidays are a great time to serve a festive breakfast. Gingerbread Pancakes are perfect for the season and easy to make!
This wonderful pancake has all of the flavors found in gingerbread cookies. Brown sugar, molasses, ginger and cinnamon make these pancakes very different and special.
They might just become a new tradition for Christmas morning. Serve the pancakes with some Gingerbread Cookies on the side and make it twice as festive.
Gingerbread Pancakes should be served warm with butter and maple syrup. If you want to add a bit of cinnamon to the syrup and warm it, you will really take these over the top!
