Are you all hanging on out there? With all the holiday parties and gift-buying and sugary sweets, it’s easy to get worn out. I think I’ve made it abundantly clear lately (sorry) that I’m on the worn-out side myself. I’ve resolved to focus on top priorities and let the rest slip, starting with my first yoga class in weeks tomorrow morning. I also want to hire some help so I can take a proper post-cookbook vacation next year. India? Morocco? Thailand?
I’m bummed that I haven’t been able to share all of the holiday recipes on my list this year. I might try to squeeze in a few extra if I can be more brief in the introduction. What do you say? I know we’re all busy this time of year.
I really wanted to revisit this gingerbread pancakes recipe that I published almost four years ago exactly. It’s one of my favorites. I’ve just been reticent to promote these pancakes because they looked like unappetizing brown blobs in the old photos. Here are some better photos to do them justice, along with a revised recipe that meets my post-cookbook recipe-writing standards. I also added special diet notes, so these should work if you’re vegan and/or gluten free.
These molasses-laced spiced pancakes are fluffy yet hearty, and both warming and comforting. They’re for Christmas morning and special occasions, but they’re also for those other days when we need some warmth and cheer. I hope you enjoy them on a cozy winter morning soon.
