{Recipe ReDux} Gingerbread Pancakes & Gingerbread Pancake Mix

Gingerbread Pancakes and Mix // The Spicy RD Give a gift of love from your kitchen…This homemade Gingerbread Pancake Mix {Gluten-Free} will spread delicious cheer throughout anyone’s kitchen this holiday season and year round!

I’m loving this month’s Recipe ReDux theme, “Adding Merriment to Mixes”, because, truly, some of the best holiday gifts, are those that come from the heart…and from the kitchen.

From hostess gifts to holiday gifts, it’s the season for DIY offerings from your kitchen…

Inspired by a drizzly morning, that called for a steaming hot cup of coffee {which BTW, we were fresh out of, so I walked 1 mile in the pouring rain drizzle, just to buy Mr. Spicy and myself a cup of coffee :-)…ok, I was desperate for a cup of coffee myself, but I really did buy one for my hubby too!} and something yummy to eat, I decided to experiment and whip up a batch of these delicately sweet and spicy pancakes, topped with pure maple syrup and lightly toasted pecans.

Oh, my goodness….

Talk about a delicious gift to get…

and to give!

Gingerbread Pancakes Mix // The Spicy RDThese gingerbread pancakes do not disappoint in the gingerbread department.

Nor in the pancake department.

They are quite simply the perfect homemade gift for anyone on your holiday list this season!

Even better yet…

Make one jar for yourself, and one jar for a friend.

  1. I want to make these right now! This would be the perfect gift for my Mom, who is avoiding gluten. Thanks EA!

  2. Yes I would walk that far for steamy coffee on a drizzly day. If there were someplace that close with good coffee! Thge closest place to my country abode is a convenience store with blaaaach coffee. (So l keep Starbucks Via on hand for emergency!) BTW these look gorgeous…. Can almost smell them too!

    • Thanks Serena, and, yes, Via is usually in my emergency supply too but I was even out of that the other day. I did find a Folgers coffee dunk bag, but talk about super blaaaaach coffee! 🙂

  3. These look so good! Great idea and love the photos, just beautiful.

  4. these look crazy amazing. you’ve combined two of my absolute favorites… gingerbread & pancakes. well, and the coffee of course too! if i was your friend and you gave me this… i might have done a herky.

  5. These look amazing and I love the idea of giving it as an edible gift. Those are my favorite types of gifts! =)

  6. These look beyond delicious. Any friend would be lucky to get this mix… gluten free or not 🙂

  10. These pancakes look irresistible! Gingerbread is the perfect flavour for this time of year too.

  11. You’ve combined two of my favorite things! These look absolutely wonderful 🙂

  12. I want I want!! I saw these posted on FB this morning and literally started to drool. These are definitely pin-worthy!

  13. I’m a gingerbread and pancake lover so this is right up my alley and I’m contemplating now doing a whole variety of pancakes mixes for the long list gifts I need for my daughter’s teachers, activity leaders, therapists, etc etc!

  14. You had me at gingerbread! YUM! They look delicious!!!

  15. I would love to get this mix as a present. I think I will have to give it to myself and make these. I will love them.

  16. Super yummy flavours to spice up a drizzly morning (surely not in SoCal!). Just wondering about the milk to mix ratio: is it really one cup milk with the whole jar?

  17. Gingerbread Pancakes sound delicious! I can almost smell them cooking!!

  18. You had me at ‘gingerbread’. I love the stuff, particularly the cakey version and these pancakes look like a great way to expand my gingerbread repertoire. And it’s great that they’re gluten-free too, I will have to pass this on to a friend of mine with coeliac disease.

  19. What an outrageously gorgeous recipe! They look so deep in colour yet so light in texture! Your pics are beautiful. These will play on my mind until I have some. Xx

  20. I’d be sorry happy to receive this as a gift – I’d be cooking them within a few minutes to share around! Love the recipe 🙂

  21. I love this gift idea! And oh my gosh, I love gingerbread pancakes too! 😀

  22. I love your photos! They make the recipes look even better than they appear at first sight 😉 I have to try those pancakes at home!

  23. These are fantastic! We’re making homemade gifts this year and these pancakes will be one of our picks for sure. I have a quick question – I can’t tell from the pictures if you used a pint or quart jar? From looking at the dry ingredients it looks to be a little over two cups, so I’m thinking a pint jar might do it? Thanks.

    • Hi Kristine! Thanks so much for your kind comment! I did use a quart jar, and although there was a little space left at the top, I don’t think a pint jar would be big enough to hold all the mix, but you could try 🙂 I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I do!
