For The Gingerbread Pancakes:

  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk or coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Extra butter for your griddle

For the Eggnog Syrup

  • 1 cup Eggnog
  • 1 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • Optional: Sugared Cranberries for Garnish


For the Pancakes:

  • In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, ground ginger and cinnamon and whisk together until well mixed.
  • Next add in molasses, eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract and whisk until batter just comes together. Leave the lumps there. No need for a smooth batter.
  • Heat a griddle or non stick skillet over medium heat and melt extra butter.
  • Pour about ¼ of a cup of batter onto the griddle surface in a circular pattern and allow to sit until bubbles form and the bottom is golden brown and crisp.
  • Flip over the pancake and cook until golden brown and crisp on the other side.
  • Remove the pancake and place in a warm oven (about 225 degrees) and repeat the process until all pancakes are done.

For the Eggnog Syrup

  • Add eggnog and maple syrup to a medium sized pot over medium high heat. Whisk together and heat until warmed then serve with pancakes. Optional: Garnish with sugared cranberries


You can easily replace the buttermilk in the pancake recipe for coconut milk.
