Ingredients:

ginger pancake ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda           

1 cup reduced fat buttermilk

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup butter, melted

2 tbsp ginger powder

1 tsp cinnamon, ground

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup white-chocolate chips

 Directions:

If you do not have buttermilk on hand, relax, you can make your own.  Add 1.5 tbsp of white vinegar into a 1 cup measuring cup. Fill the measuring cup with milk-you can use whole milk but I prefer low fat or skim milk (less fat, and less calories). Stir gently to evenly distribute the vinegar throughout the milk.  Let it sit for 5 minutes, giving it time to coagulate slightly.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Mix together using a spatula.

In another bowl, mix together egg, buttermilk, vanilla extract and melted butter. (Try not to over mix). Pour this into the flour mixture, distributing evenly with the help of a spatula until thoroughly combined. Next, mix in the chocolate chips into the batter.

Spray a skillet with cooking spray, and place on low-medium heat.  Use a 1/2 cup to scoop the batter unto the skillet.

After about 2-3 minutes, when the edges, start getting brown, flip the pancake over for an additional minute.

Serve hot with light syrup/whipped cream.
