Serve Spice Pancakes for a Holiday Brunch with Butter and Maple Syrup

I have many pancake recipes, and my husband always says what’s wrong with your traditional kind, saying that if it’s not broke, why fix it! But I like to try new and different foods, and that’s okay, too! See my Pancake Recipes Here.

This recipe is actually one I made with our youngest daughter when she was little, as part of her preschool lessons here at home. These days, our youngest grandson helps me make pancakes, and he loves getting his little hands involved. He’s quite the helper!

Serve Spice Pancakes with Pumpkin Spice Maple Syrup

Holiday Spice Pancakes are really good with pure maple syrup or even a Pumpkin Spice Maple Syrup that I found at Aldi grocery store this season. If you can find it in their stores, I recommend that you give it a try! Hint: It also works really well in my Bourbon Pecan Pie recipe.

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. To make this recipe you’ll need a large mixing bowl or batter bowl, a spatula for mixing and one for turning the pancakes, and a griddle.

 

Prepare the Batter

Sift Dry Ingredients Together

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and ground cloves. Wisk to incorporate.

This is a great recipe to have your children (or grandchildren) help with. Teach them how to measure, dump, and stir. Great teaching moments! 

Stir in the Wet Ingredients

Create a well in the center of the flour. Add in whole milk, vegetable oil, large eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

Fold Applesauce into Batter

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the cinnamon applesauce. The batter will be lumpy.

If desired, you may use plain applesauce, but I usually buy the cinnamon kind and that’s what I have in my pantry. Use what you have in supply! 

 

Cook the Pancakes

Cook the Pancakes on a Griddle until they Bubble in the Middle

Heat a large griddle over medium heat and spread melted butter over it. Using about 1/3 cup per pancake, cook 2-3 pancakes at a time. Turn over when bubbles appear in the center and cook until golden brown on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve Pancakes with Butter and Maple Syrup, Eggs, and Sausage or Bacon

Serve pancakes with butter and maple syrup, or the pumpkin spice maple syrup if you can find it! Add some eggs and bacon or sausage for a full breakfast sure to please.

This recipe will make 12-16 pancakes and will serve 6-8 people.
