Gingerbread Pancakes with Sauteed Apples
Gingerbread pancakes. They’re a good thing. I’ll share a little secret with you, IF you could only make ONE pancake during this holiday season I would make it these. That’s a bold statement I know but after making these at least two dozen times over a month long tweaking and testing period I can tell you that they’re like eating gingerbread cookies for breakfast. You’re mind will be confused but your stomach will be ridiculously happy. And honestly who doesn’t want to eat cookies for breakfast some days. If not I’m not sure we can be friends.
These are fantastic dripping with pure maple syrup but to take it up a notch (it is the holidays and ehem calories don’t count this month) try adding cinnamon sauteed apples. Apples practically makes this health food. Surprisingly I can say that with a straight face. Okay almost a straight face. Either way you and your guests will flip for these gingerbread pancakes. If you’re not a morning person like me (or if you’re incredibly organized and like to get a jump on things) you could even whip up the batter the night before and have it ready to add to the griddle the next month. Options you know how much we like those.
When you are ready to whip up a stack of these beauties you can get my recipe on KitchenAid’s THE KITCHENTHUSIAST blog.
