Gingerbread Pancakes

Updated: Jan 7

I’m already getting the Christmas feels! It's December, and my kitchen smells like Christmas. I love Christmas. It truly is the best time of the year.

Because I am a big fan of Breakfast, I am starting my December recipes with Gingerbread Pancakes. I am excited to be sharing this easy homemade Christmas Pancakes recipe with you. You can top the pancakes with maple syrup, chocolate syrup, berries, bananas, peanut butter or whipped coconut cream to add some extra flavors to them.

Prep Time: 15min Cook Time: 40min Serves: 4 Servings Level: Beginning

Tips To Make Perfect Vegan Pancakes

  • Milk - Instead of regular milk, use your favorite non-dairy milk. I recommend you use an unsweetened and unflavoured one. Homemade milk, like cashew or oat milk, is fine, too.

  • Egg - To make egg-free pancakes, the most effective method for this recipe is to combine extra baking powder with a bit of baking soda and an acid like vinegar or lemon juice. By using this combination, you replace the leavening that the raising agent and the eggs would otherwise provide. Your results should be just as good as they would be with a batter made with eggs.

  • Stay undermixed! Don’t overmix your batter if you want the very best texture for your pancakes.

  • Include a tiny bit of oil in the batter to make all the difference in terms of texture.

  • For fluffy pancakes, the batter needs to be thick. Thicker than pancake batter made with eggs.

  • The trick to cooking good vegan pancakes is to cook them to a high temperature and to let them cook slowly. That way, they become fluffy on the inside. If you rush them, they can end up a little damp inside, and that's never good when it comes to pancakes.
