P is for Gingerbread Pancakes with Creme Fraiche #AtoZChallenge #recipe

This recipe is based on a family recipe from my grandfather’s sister. I adapted it to make them into Gingerbread Pancakes, a family favorite at Christmas or just because. I also made a gluten free version due to some family members being diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

Gingerbread Pancakes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 scant teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 t. ginger
  • 1 cup buttermilk (SACO powdered buttermilk is a good option, if you don’t use buttermilk often)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 c. molasses

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir gently by hand until just mixed. Lumps are OK. Note that these are thin pancakes, so you won’t need much batter to make a nice-sized pancake, as the batter will spread on the griddle.

Gingerbread Pancakes Gluten Free

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/3 cup potato starch
  • 4 tablespoons dry buttermilk powder
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water

In a bowl, mix or sift together the rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, dry buttermilk powder, sugar substitute, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum. Stir in eggs, water, and oil until well blended and few lumps remain.

Crème fraîche

Crème fraîche is incredibly easy to make. Since all recipes are pretty much the same, I’m just going to link to this video on how to make it: http://allrecipes.com/video/721/homemade-creme-fraiche/detail.aspx
