Gingerbread Pancakes (Magnolia Cafe)
Our gingerbread pancakes recipe comes from Austin's Magnolia Cafe, a popular hang-out for Texas Cooking employees anytime day or night. Open 24 hours a day, you are likely to find a hungry crowd at Magnolia, which keeps a neon sign in the window that says "Sorry, we're open". You may find these aromatic, spice-filled pancakes do not need syrup. Try decorating them instead with powdered sugar and butter. Read the full story behind presenting this recipe. Serve with crispy bacon, hot coffee and grits.
In a separate container, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture, and stir in the melted butter.
Grease a griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, ladle the batter onto the hot griddle. Cook until bubbles appear, then flip. Cook until each pancake is cooked through the middle. Makes about 3-1/2 cups of batter, or enough for 6 to 8 pancakes.
