Gingerbread Pancakes With Banana And Maple Syrup

This is a simple pancake recipe with a twist, using ginger and cinnamon to make them taste just like gingerbread.

Why not make a batch for a family breakfast, or you can keep leftover batter in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days to use again.

Serves 4


  • 1.5 cups wholemeal self raising flour
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • free-range eggs
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • tablespoons melted butter
  • banana sliced


  1. In a bowl, stir together the flour, ginger and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, beat together the egg and milk, then stir in half of the maple syrup and melted butter. Add the flour mixture and fold until just combined.
  3. Heat a non-stick fry pan over a medium heat and pour a quarter cup of batter for each pancake into the pan.
  4. Cook on the first side until the batter is full of bubbles on the surface. Then flip and cook the other side. Continue cooking until all the batter has been cooked.
Divide pancakes between four serving plates and serve drizzled with remaining maple syrup and slices of banana
