...ginger pancakes, gingerbread granola, gingerbread sauce...you do like ginger right?
Erm if not, maybe the pancakes below will be more up you street.
For the gingerbread recipe, I used my oatmeal blini recipe to get an oaty kick to start the morning, but you could use spelt or GF flours as per the other recipes linked above or your own tried and tested recipe, just add the ginger and molasses. For the sauce, see this post. My sauce was runnier than I had originally envisaged as I was too impatient to let the ingredients freeze fully and I spent too much time faffing around before taking the photos. For a thicker frosting to sandwich between the pancakes simply freeze for longer either before or after blending.
Gingerbread reminds me of the holidays, cold weather and warm sticky cake fresh from the oven....maybe i'm simply not ready to leave behind the seasonal festivities quite yet.
