Gingerbread Pancakes

Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, or a cozy night in, these gingerbread pancakes are just the item to make any cold weather occasion a real treat.  The inviting scent of gingerbread wafts through the house creating spicy goodness; an irresistible indulgence.  Serve them with real Maple Syrup or try them with my hot Maple Apple Sauce, Maple Walnut Sauce or Maple Cranberry Sauce.  They are great with just a dusting of powdered sugar even!
