“Birthdays are wonderful. Statistics show people who have the most are the ones who live the longest.”
It is the Twelfth Day Of Christmas.
That can only mean two things: Gingerbread and the two year anniversary of I Sing In The Kitchen.
Thank you all for making it so much fun to share food and music. Putting together a post is always one of my favorite parts of each day.
So continuing the Irish tradition of serving something gingerbread on January 6th here is a festive recipe for Gingerbread Pancakes.
The pancakes are delicious alone with a splash of maple syrup, but it was the dried cranberries and warm apple topping that made me love this breakfast so much. It looked wonderful, tasted even better.
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon canola oil
Maple syrup, to serve
3/4 cup apple pie filling, warmed
3 tablespoons dried cranberries
1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
2. Combine the egg, milk, molasses and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until the second side is golden brown.
4. To serve, place pancakes on each plate; drizzle with syrup. Top with 1/4 cup apple pie filling; sprinkle with cranberries.
Serves 3 (Doubles easily)

To celebrate two years I think I will do what I like best. Head to the kitchen, pour a drink and sing along to loud, fun music.
Like this song by The Spyrals.
I love the slinky guitars. I love the “Aaaaaaah”s.
Cheers and thanks again for hanging out with me!
