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 buttermilk, plus extra
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

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