Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancakes

by Laura on March 2, 2011

When I begin to long for winter to melt into spring, for the crocuses to pop their heads up and to feel the sun on my face again, the best remedy is to make something that I would only cook in the wintertime. It’s a nice reminder of the excitement I feel when the season begins, when the snow feels new and not like a nuisance, and I can’t wait for months of snow and mittens and stews. Gingerbread seems perfect. Since I’m missing my Honey Girl, who is our number one pancake horker, I’m making gingerbread pancakes. I’ve had some exciting blog news this week, and so I’m missing her. If she were here she would gallop through the house with me. The boys are happy, but they aren’t up for a gallop. I long for our pancake-eating, galloping days, when she was just a sprout. So I’ll eat these pancakes and think of her and enjoy another winter day. These pancakes are delicious. The whole wheat flour makes them a little heartier but they’re still melt-in-your-mouth, and the gingerbread spices have made the whole house smell like Christmas again. If you’re needing to lift your winter spirits, make some today.
