Christmas Gingerbread Pancakes

My daughter, Abigail, was home for Christmas and requested these pancakes for Christmas morning. I believe that this recipe comes from Jigger's Diner in RI via Gourmet magazine long ago.

These pancakes are wonderful on a cold morning with maple syrup, applesauce or just alittle butter.

Gingerbread Pancakes

1 cup hot brewed coffee
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour (or 1 cup of 1 type of flour)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

In a large bowl stir together coffee and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. When the coffee has cooled to room temperature whisk in the egg and butter. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until blended. Batter will be thin. Let it stand for 10 minutes. It will thicken up alittle.

Heat a griddle over medium high heat. Spray with vegetable spray. Ladle batter on griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles appear on surface and the undersides turn brown. Flip pancakes and cook about 1 more minute.

Makes about 16 5" pancakes.

Happy Holidays! Enjoy!
