Gingerbread Pancakes with Pomegranate Syrup


Fresh Ginger is an essential ingredient in almost all of my everyday savory dishes.As fabulous as its health benefits are ,ginger is superb in variety of cooking,even in desserts.Gingerbread Cookies with hint of fresh ginger are adored favorites.
These fascinating pancakes with peppery and lemony flavors of fresh ginger and drizzle of light pomegranate syrup,would make any breakfast a treat.Ideally served with pure maple syrup,is also perfect with the pomegranate syrup.Besides ginger,the molasses is the next unique component in these pancakes.

Molasses,the healthy Sweetener


A byproduct of sugar processing,the molasses is rich in iron and calcium ,its another healthy sweetener that works fantastically in baked goodies.Substitute molasses for sugar. One cup of molasses equals 3/4 cup of sugar.



Adapted from Kevin's Original recipe
Makes about 6-8 medium pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour(fine ground)
1 teaspoon baking powder(alum free)
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup skimmed milk
1 Organic egg
2 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon Organic butter,melted

Method
Sift together the flour, baking powder,cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl.In another bowl,whisk egg along with milk ,molasses,brown sugar and ginger . Mix both wet and dry mixtures.
Heat non stick pan on medium flame. Grease it lightly with oil . Ladle about 3 tablespoon of the batter onto pan for each pancake. Cook until the top is bubbly and bottom is dark brown, flip, and continue cooking for about 30 seconds.Repeat the same for the rest of the batter.serve with pure maple syrup or light Pomegranate syrup.


Light Pomegranate Syrup
Bring 2 cups of good quality pomegranate juice to a slow boil with 2 tablespoon of light brown sugar or 1 tablespoon of Agave nectar.Now stir in a teaspoon of Organic corn starch in a 2 teaspoon of water and pour it in the cooking pomegranate mixture while stirring constantly.Cook for a minute and turn off the heat.Serve the syrup with pancakes .

JASMINA said...

Hi Yasmeen :),

I must admit that last weeek I was a bit neglecting your blog,but time isn't on my side.But,when I saw that you made pancakes,I just had to visit you.I adore pancakes in all forms and taste.I'll make thes ones for sure.I'd also like to thank you for writing about molases.I discovered it just very recently,as I saw it in the supermarket in my village in Slovenia.To my great astonishment!I haven't bought it yet,but I'll do it now for sure.I really am into subtitues for sugar.Now I'm using cane sugar and honey and I notice a difference.Everything has a better taste and I think it makes me feel better.You know what we have in Slovenia,rasperry syrup.I'll be using this for these pancakes,because I don't think I'll be ever able to find pomgranate syrup or let alone maple one :).
I send you a strong hug my dear <3!XO

PJ said...

Love the pomegranate syrup and the fact that you used agave nectar in it :) Agave nectar is just such a wonderful though relatively less-known substitute for regular white sugar and has this subtle fruity aftertaste that neither sugar nor honey have! Wonderful post.

Kerstin said...

Oh wow, these look absolutely fantastic! The gingerbread and pomegranate syrup combo sounds SO tasty!

Viki's Kitchen said...

Good to read the benefits of ginger and molasses. Totally agree with you on that impeccable taste. Pancake seems so spongy and looks like a treat.
