Gingerbread Pancakes

Gingerbread Pancakes, adapted from, are fluffy and flavorful pancakes that make the perfect holiday breakfast. These quick pancakes are a step up from the average pancake thanks to the addition of "gingerbread" spices.  If you really want to make this a festive breakfast, use holiday cookie cutters to cut out the cooked pancakes!

5. Once the skillet is hot, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to ladle batter into skillet and form 4-5 pancakes (as many as you can fit in the skillet at a time). Let pancakes cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface, (2-4 minutes), then carefully flip them. Continue cooking pancakes, about 2 minutes more, or until they are golden brown on both sides.

6. Transfer cooked pancakes to serving dish. Remove skillet from heat briefly to respray with nonstick spray then return to stove top. Repeat Step 5 to create 2 more batches of pancakes or until batter is gone.

7. Serve pancakes with any desired toppings!

*Note- Pancakes can easily be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to eat. Simply place cooked pancakes in between layers of wax paper in a tupperware container. Reheat prior to serving using a microwave, oven, or toaster, until warmed through.
