Christmas Gingerbread Pancakes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Wonderful for a Christmas morning brunch, don't wait until the holidays to make these they are wonderful at anytime ---adjust the amount of sugar to suit taste, I strongly suggest for this and for any pancake recipe to allow the batter to sit in the refrigerator for at least a few hours this will improve the texture of the pancakes --- these are wonderful served with orange marmalade :)

Yum Yum Yum!!!! These were served for breakfast on Christmas morning! They were fabulous! I separated the egg whites from the yolks and beat the whites before adding them to the rest of the batter, they came out so fluffy I couldn't believe it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl combine first 8 dry ingredients.
  2. In another small bowl whisk together the egg with buttermilk, sugar, molasses, and melted butter until very well combined; add to the flour mixture and mix lightly until just until moistened (a few small lumps in the mixture is okay, do not overmix).
  3. At this point you may refrigerate for a few hours until ready to use.
  4. Grease a griddle, then drop about 1/4-cup batter for each pancake into the pan.
  5. Cook the pancakes until the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges looked cooked.
  6. Turn and cook the other side.
  7. Serve with marmalade.
