Gingerbread Pancakes

I frequent Coconut & Lime, a great website by Rachael Rappaport, all of her recipes are original. I was there a few days ago and saw a recipe for Gingerbread Pancakes, and since we are breakfast FIENDS, I decided to try them this morning. The only change we made, was to add 1/4 cup of blue cornmeal and a bit more buttermilk.

All I can say is "OH MY GOD", these are the best pancakes I have eaten in my entire life. Seriously, try them, then tell her how much you love them!
I served with Apple, Maple, Chicken Breakfast Sausage and the combination was incredible!

1 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk, plus extra
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 egg at room temperature
1/4 cup Blue Cornmeal (optional)

Whisk egg, molasses, butter, sugar and buttermilk together until smooth, set aside.

In medium bowl, whisk corn meal, spices, flour, baking soda, baking powder.

Slowly mix in egg/milk mixture, there should be no lumps, batter will be thick

Cook on your buttered non stick griddle until both sides are nicely browned

Those pancakes look great. I love pancakes but need to be ambitious in the morning to make them! I have been to the Coconut and Lime blog and I love it too!!!

I have everything but the blue cornmeal and I don't think I'll be able to find any here in Mayberry. Would I substitute regular corn meal? I want to make these Saturday have me sold, they look fabulous!

Hey Cheryl, I came over the other day and you were not there. I saw a tripod, lighting, and what not in kitchen. Is that for your awesome pictures of food?

I don't normally like American style pancakes, I prefer crepes, but these sound sensational.

How to spatchcock a chicken or turkey!

Finishing some of Cheryl's drafts... Keeping spatchcocking simple. Using a VERY sharp cleaver or kitchen shears -- not scissors, carefu...
