Ginger Pancakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bonnie G 2

Found this in the Baker's Catalog and it sounds great though I haven't tried it yet. Described as tender, moist, gingery pancakes. Sounds a little complicated to me but great for that special breakfast or just as something a little different. (Directions say you may substitute 2 cups liquid buttermilk for the buttermilk powder and liquid milk if desired) a variation listed for Ginger-Pumpkin Pancakes - add 1 cup pumpkin puree and reduce the amount of milk to 1 1/4 cups.

Spectacular pancakes! Made as directed they raise high, fluffy, golden and just plain delicious. I topped mine with a small amount of ginger marmalade. This made a marvelous sunny tasting breakfast on a frost covered northern morning. Thank you for sharing this Bonnie, it's a keeper for sure. :D

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients to blend. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, pumpkin (if using above variation)and butter until blended. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until blended.
  2. Heat griddle to about 350°F, or a frying pan over medium heat. Coat lightly with oil.
  3. Drop pancake batter onto the griddle and cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes; they'll form bubbles on their top surface, and the edges will begin to look dry.
  4. Turn and brown the other side.
  5. Serve with butter, syrup, and diced crystallized ginger.
  6. Yields sixteen 4-inch pancakes.
