Gingerbread-Pancakes with Icing and Coloured Sprinkles

By 10:17 PM , , , , , ,

Christmas is almost here and preparations for the holiday season appear to start!

As Christmas is famous for the festive time of the year of giving, we thought to give Pancakestories another Chrismas - Special and you, our most beloved readers, two new ways to celebrate the holidays with style! Therefore, we came up with two great ways to give out favourite breakfast-dish the X-Mas-Trearment it truly deserves.

We will start with a funny new shape AND taste: Gingerbread-Pancakes! Besides chocolate and speculoos (Verlinkungen von Spekulatius und chocolate-pancakes), gingerbread is on of the most used spice during this time of the year and its long overdue to give it a dedicated stack!

For the pancakes:
170g whole wheat flour
40g almond flour
20g almond, chopped and roasted
30g brown sugar
4g baking soda
4g baking powder
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon
4 eggs
1 teaspoon gingerbread spice
2 teaspoons unsweetened cacao-powder

For the icing:
2-3 Tablespoons lemon-juice
50g powdered sugar

  1. First things first. Before we collect all the dry ingredients in one small bowl, place a skillet on medium heat and give the almonds a little roast. But be careful - don't let them out of your sight for too long… during your almonds are on the stove, gather the flour, sugar, almond-flour, pinches of salt and cinnamon with the right amount of baking powder and baking soda and don't forget the special ingredient: gingerbread-spice. 
  2. The roasted almonds need some time to cool down, before you start chopping them in small pieces and add them to the flour. Take a large bowl and a small one and separate the eggs. Add some melted butter to the yolk and whisk it firmly. Same goes for the egg white, after adding 100-120ml of buttermilk. 
  3. Take it slow with the following step: pour the beaten yolk into the egg white mixture and add your dry ingredients carefully: you don't want to destroy the foamy egg white of yours now, do you? 
  4. The batter will need some time to chill down, which gives us the time to quickly whisk a simple lemon-powdered sugar grace together. Just take some lemon-juice and give in some powdered-sugar while using a sifter. Done!

  5. Preheat your pan and get cooking! Of course, you could eat those pancakes as they came out there - but to get you in christmas-mood big time, just grab a cookie-cutter and cut your favourite shapes out! Hearts, dolphins or skulls - you name it! We went for a classical gingerbread-man. Build a nice stack, pour some glaze on it and add some of your roasted almonds. 

 Happy Holidays!
