Make these FUN and festive Ginger Pancakes that can be made gluten-free too!
Are you ready for the holiday season? Ginger Pancakes or Gingerbread Pancakes have been a longstanding must in our family. These are our go-to pancakes any time we have a snow day.
We love to top them with a little “snow” and enjoy them with warm, maple syrup.
What type of baking mix should you use?
The base of this recipe is a baking mix, such as Bisquick. We actually use this Homemade Bisquick Recipe.
It can be made gluten-free by using gluten-free all-purpose flour if needed.
Once the base is done, you will have enough for these pancakes plus extra that you can store in an airtight container for future use.
Tips for Making Ginger Pancakes:
These pancakes are very similar to gingerbread pancakes, so it’s always fun to add something festive on top.
If you’d like to add a little festive gingerbread on top, simply use a cookie-cutter then sprinkle it with powdered sugar and remove the cookie cutter.
Once you remove it, then you will have this adorable gingerbread design waiting on the special people in your life to dig right in.
It’s best to make these in a griddle or skillet and you will want to keep it on medium-high heat. They will need to be watched carefully, once the pancake batter starts to bubble that’s when it’s time to flip them.
These are absolutely the best when served with real maple syrup, it really enhances the flavor.
We simply warm ours up in the microwave just before pouring it over the pancakes.
I’ll say there is nothing better than watching the snow come down while eating ginger pancakes topped with snow AKA powdered sugar. Here in Oklahoma, snow is so short-lived that it’s such a treat!
