These gingerbread pancakes are brought to you by my rumbling stomach on Christmas morning.

I feel like you’re so excited on Christmas morning that you forget about breakfast until your stomach is rumbling and you have no idea what you’re doing for breakfast. You can (and should) make an overnight eggnog french toast bake if you have time but if you don’t, these gingerbread pancakes come together in no time. Simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry from all the baking you’ve been doing this season and you’ve got yourself pancake batter that is enough to feed a small family or you can double the batch and have enough for a large family.

However many mouths you need to feed — no one will object to having gingerbread pancakes on Christmas morning or heck — ANY morning. I would totally have gingerbread pancakes all year-long but I think most people think of gingerbread during the holiday season.

These gingerbread pancakes have all the spicy gingerbread flavor that you know and love but they’re also fluffy! I love a good fluffy pancake. Nothing sucks more than biting into a flat and dense pancake. I can remember a time or two in college where that has happened. It was like rubber and goodness, I probably should have just gone to IHOP. That was my pre-cooking days ;) everyone has those moments.
