chefshawn's grannie's gingerbread pancakes

9 3" pancakes

1c flour
1T sugar
1t baking powder
1t ground dry ginger
.5t salt
.5t baking soda
.5t cinnamon
dash of clove

*stir all the above together in a medium mixin bowl

2T molasses
1T vegetable oil
1c buttermilk
1 beaten egg

*mix these wet items together well in a separate small bowl

*fold wet into dry until well combined. as the batter sits for at least 5 minutes, it gets fluffy. i like to use an ice cream disher to scoop the batter onto the buttered griddle.

*serve with fried apples and sweetened whipped cream

**********************

now, when i say grannie, i mean it. this came from my great grandmother, carmen sanders. she's 91 now, and she's plum crazy. lost most of her mind to alzheimer's. she was a lucky one, though, as she was ALWAYS a happy-go-lucky church-goin lil lady. she hasnt lost a touch of that.

it's really fun to visit her, and hear about all the things "they got her doin" in the home. one day she was EXHAUSTED from her early mornin treck up on the mountain's hikin trails, and then havin to come back to the home and feed EVerybody there. um, no, she just sits in her chair talking to her might-as-well-be-sister. they're both equally crazy and goofy, so they can talk nonstop. they never really care what the other's talkin about.

i'm sure i'm gonna lose her someday, but i'll be happy to have known my entire life as such a wonderful lil ol spirit. as lively as she seems, though, she very well could make it to greatgreatness. (my niece is 9)

Mmmm, that sounds good. I have some candied ginger, I assume I could use a larger amount of that and reduce the sugar.

Gingerbread pancakes?

Darn.

I knew I should have locked you up in the guest room when I had the chance. :wink:

With the babysitter headed off to college and no personal chef on staff... I'm thinking I have an opening here that you'd be perfect for! We already know Kay would be thrilled to have you around!

Thanks again for this recipe Shawn. Our menu is coming together nicely and these pancakes are going to be the centerpiece (See, Waxahachie is called the "Gingerbread City", so it works out great!).

This looks almost exactly like my ginegerbread pancakes recipe. I absolutely LOVE these. I got the recipe out of a kid's favorite recipes cookbook. Whenever my son has a friend stay over, he asks me to make gingerbread pancakes in the morning. We serve them with apple sauce and whipped cream, and we never have leftovers.
GONE, BABY, GONE.

Those sound good!
I’m not a pancake or waffle kind-a guy but Diz loves the stuff!
I’m gonna have to try and score some brownie points and make um for her!
Thanks for sharing the recipe and the history behind it Shawn!
That was cool!

i'm bumpin up this recipe to make sure of a few things. i asked mongo to archive it, as this is my favorite place to search for recipes. also, my grannie is gone now, since at least a year and a half ago.

also, this is a great recipe for the colder months. i hope you all can dig in and enjoy some, soon.

cheers,

I'm sorry to hear your Grannie has gone to her reward, but I'm happy that you bumped this recipe up. We will remember her in gingerbread pancakes.
