    After having Gingerbread pancakes at a national chain breakfast house, I simply HAD to find the recipe online. I made this recipe with no changes and my husband and children ate every one of them. My husband even commented that he liked this recipe better than the restaurant's! This is one we will be making over and over.  -  27 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! I completely cut out the butter and used half the brown sugar and it was excellent. Even my sister liked it and she made it exactly the way the recipe called for so I know she didn't even miss the butter or extra sugar. I made the batter the night before so the seasonings had time to meld togther. I froze the leftovers and reheated in the toaster and it was even better. Plus the extra crispiness from the toasted helped the pancakes from being to soggy. The mixture of seasonings is wonderful. Thanks for posting this recipe.  -  04 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Too much butter and too much sugar! This might have made a good "dessert gingerbread". You really get overload when you put butter and syrup on like you do with regular pancakes! The spice combination is nice, though.  -  27 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
