I found this recipe on Food Network and it comes from the Magnolia Cafe. I have no idea of the location of the Magnolia Cafe, but I do like these pancakes. These are a dense pancake which I like to eat by themselves. The original recipe only called for 1/4 cup brown sugar, but I decided to double it and am very glad I did.


  1. In large bowl beat eggs well then add brown sugar mixing well.
  2. Add buttermilk, water and brewed coffee stirring to combine.
  3. In separate large bowl mix all dry ingredients.
  4. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, stirring until just combined.
  5. Stir in the melted butter.
  6. Grease a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  7. When hot pour scant 1/4 cupfuls in the skillet or griddle.
  8. Cook until bubbles appear on the top and top looks semi-dry, about 3 minutes then flip.
  9. Cook on the second side until golden brown about 3-4 minutes.
  10. Serve while hot.

These pancakes made for a delicious breakfast! I was a little worried that they would be too spicy, but the spices were balanced perfectly. I was out of ground cloves and substituted all spice. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
