Gingerbread Pancakes

I promised the recipe to these a while ago when I was embroiled in Pancake Hilarity.  I have since liberated the cookbook from which this recipe springs– an old one called “On the Road to Vegetarian Cooking”.  Shhhh…. don’t tell anyone I am serving these with bacon.  The spice quantities here seem reckless but they really work so don’t mess with them!
Gingerbread Pancakes

Beat together:

3 eggs

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp molasses  (I have sometimes (like today) used 4 tbsp of honey when I don’t have molasses at hand.  Which is usually how things are.)


1/2 cup yogurt

1/2 to 2/3 cup water or soymilk.  (I never have soymilk so I use regular milk).

1/3 cup brewed coffee (this really adds something special to the flavours).

In a separate bowl combine:

1 cup white flour

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp allspice or cloves

1 tbsp cinnamon (yep tablespoons from here on in!)

1 tbsp ground ginger

1 tbsp ground nutmeg

Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing just until combined.


4 tbsp sunflower or other light oil and stir briefly.

Add more liquid by the spoonful if needed. Batter will be thick.  Ladle about 1/3 cup per pancake on a griddle.  When air bubbles have formed, then burst, flip to brown on the other side.  Serve with syrup.  Makes 8-10 hefty pancakes.
