Gingerbread pancakes
 
I'm working on gingerbread pancakes. I worked on this some time back, but could not get any ginger taste (despite using 2-4T per 1/2 cup of flour). The problem had to have been old/bad ginger. I now have some fresh powdered ginger, and I'm starting again.

Here's what I'm going to try first:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 T powdered ginger
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 T oil

Here's a link for those folks that don't normally have "pumpkin pie spice" in their cupboard:

I forgot to list the egg in the original recipe, and I also added 1/2 T brown sugar.

The pancakes came out brown (kind of like whole wheat) and tasted of ginger. It did not taste too strong, but did leave a slight burning sensation in my mouth. Next time, I think I'll decrease the ginger and increase the pumpkin pie spice.

I don't do syrup. For these I'm alternating thin layers of PB and fruit spread.


Take two:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 T powdered ginger
  • 1/2 T pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 egg
  • 1/2 T oil
  • 1/2 T brown sugar
Not quite there yet...

Try adding a tablespoon or two of molasses...I always put that in my gingerbread cookies.

I added 1t of molasses and it did help the taste. Unfortunately, the pancakes stuck something fierce.

you might want to check to see what percentage of your pumpkin pie spice is ginger. That would help keep you from adding too much.
