Gingerbread Pancakes with Spiced Cranberry SyrupYUMMLY
There’s no better way to wake up Christmas morning than with festive pancakes. These fluffy gingerbread pancakes give you all the familiar warm spices from your favorite holiday cookie. For a fun activity with kids, use a gingerbread cookie cutter to punch out gingerbread people after the pancakes are cooked. Skip the regular maple syrup and instead, top the pancakes with a simple spiced cranberry maple syrup. Fresh cranberries are cooked down with maple and spices. It’s the perfect combination of tart and sweet with just a hint of citrus to bring all those flavors forward. If you can’t find fresh cranberries, frozen cranberries are a great substitute. Christmas is a time to indulge, so don’t forget the homemade vanilla whipped cream! The recipe, which makes a dozen pancakes, is a Yummly original created by Saura Kline.
- Make spiced cranberry syrup: In a small saucepan, stir together cranberries, maple syrup, water, orange zest, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon allspice, and 1/8 teaspoon cloves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until cranberries have broken down and sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring once or twice throughout and watching so contents do not spill over. Transfer cranberry syrup to a serving dish and set aside.
- Meanwhile, prepare vanilla whipped cream, if making: In a medium mixing bowl, combine heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Use a hand-mixer on medium-high speed or a whisk to whip to stiff peaks. Transfer whipped cream to a serving dish and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
- Make gingerbread pancakes: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, ginger, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, the baking powder, salt, 3/4 teaspoon allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon cloves.
