Christmas Pancake Recipes

As I mentioned I love breakfast and Christmas morning breakfast/brunch is extra special! It’s when you can pull out all the stops and go over the top! Like these pancakes which I topped with a whipped cream cheese topping (SO GOOD!).

What are some of your favorite Christmas morning breakfasts?? I remember always having my mom’s Swedish Tea Ring. She would make it every year and try to hide it hoping it would make it for breakfast!

How do you make Gingerbread Pancakes?

They are actually quite easy! These are a made from scratch pancake but trust me they aren’t any harder to make than that store bought mix.

I start by mixing all the dry ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk. This way it gets all those spices evenly distributed. Then I add in the wet and stir with a spatula just until everything is combined and no more.

You don’t want to overmix pancakes or they will be tough. If you still see a few small pockets of flour that is ok, I promise!

I like to top these pancakes with pure maple syrup and my kids love adding the whipped cream cheese, sprinkles, and a gingerbread man cookie. I know it seems like a lot, but it’s Christmas so we indulge.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup (355ml) buttermilk

Instructions
Gingerbread Pancakes
  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, clove, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

  2. Add the buttermilk, molasses, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Mix just until combined and no more. There should be some lumps in the batter. 

  3. Drop 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle. May need grease your griddle if pancakes are sticking. Serve with maple syrup and cream cheese whipped topping if desired. 

Cream Cheese Whipped Topping
  1. In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form. 

Recipe Notes
  1. Nutrition Facts- Calculated WITHOUT adding the cream cheese whipped topping. Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the information shown is just an estimate.
  2. Make ahead- these pancakes can be frozen for up to 2 months. First freeze pancakes in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Stack frozen pancakes and place in a freezer safe container.
