Merry Christmas Eve to you all!
These pancakes have a gentle gingerbread taste. Perfect for a winter morning.
2 & 1/2 cups Gifts of Nature gf flour mix (or any gf flour mix with xanthan)
5 tsp baking powder
1 & 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 & 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 + 1/8 tsp ground ginger
6 TBS oil (tip – use 1/4 cup and 2 TBS)
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses (tip – put the molasses in the cup used for oil)
2 to 2 & 1/2 cups milk (2 for fluffy, 2 & 1/2 for thin)
2 large eggs
1 cup raisins
Stir together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredient, and stir until mixed. Fold in raisins.
Cook in skillet on medium heat. These pancakes do not make bubbles, but a “skin” will start to form on the top. My stove can be real wonky, so that’s really all I can tell you. Everything with my stove is a guessing game.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and/or whichever special event you are celebrating.
And in despair I bowed my head:
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.”
Till, ringing, singing, on it’s way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men!
From “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”
By Henry W. Longfellow
