Gingerbread Pancakes
1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. In another bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, molasses, melted butter and 3/4 cup of water. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until blended. There will be some small lumps.

Place a large griddle or frying pan over medium heat until hot enough for a drop of water to sizzle and then immediately evaporate.  Melt 1/2 teaspoon of butter in the pan. For each pancake, ladle about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot buttered surface. Cook until small  bubbles appear and the edges start to look dry, about 3-4 minutes, lift the pancake to check if the underside is done; do not let the pancakes darken to much. Carefully turn the pancakes and cook until lightly browned on the second sides, about 1 minute longer. Transfer to an ovenproof platter and place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, buttering the griddle/pan each time. Makes 8 pancakes

                                                                 Lots of little bowls

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the finished product but I was um.... shall we say "preoccupied".

  1. Katie - I am one of your Nana's sister-in-laws. I've been impressed with you for years, but now I am just blown away! You have done a superb job on your blog and I am so thankful for your sweet testimony, the loving things you say about your family and the commitment you have to helping other young women see the importance of being a homemaker (and eventually mothers.) I have found that the art, and joy, of homemaking isn't very often taught to young women today (even by the older women who are Christians.) What I hear most of the time is the importance of going to college, getting a job, good pay and a nest egg in the bank before they even consider marriage. Thank you for doing what God has laid on your heart. I look forward to looking at your blog regularly. God bless you.
