I'd never made gingerbread pancakes at home so I was excited to see this recipe posted on one of my favorite blogs, The Homesick Texan. These pancakes are from the Austin restaurant, Magnolia Cafe, and were originally shared with Texas Monthly magazine.
They are thick, cake like, and delicious! The first Sunday of Advent is tomorrow so it's officially time to start enjoying all things Christmas - including these gingerbread pancakes!
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brewed coffee
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon ginger
1 tablespoon nutmeg
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Cream eggs and sugar together. Stir in buttermilk, water, and coffee and set aside. In a separate bowl sift together remaining dry ingredients.
Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients, then mix in melted butter.
Add more water or buttermilk if necessary, but batter should be thick.
Cook until done on a lightly greased hot griddle or in a heavy skillet (turn once when bubbles appear on upper side and start to break).
Pancakes will be thick and cake-like in texture.
Makes 8 to 10 five-inch pancakes.
