Gingerbread Pancakes and Raclette Givewaway

My daughter has been getting on me for not being in the Christmas spirit enough. I am in the spirit, I think she thinks I am not because her memories of coming home from school with the house full of Christmas smells and the Christmas music are swaying her. I tried to tell her that her memories are a little different than things were. She would come home to Christmas treats and music, but I think she thought the music was on all day. I would turn it on just before the kids got home to create ambiance. I think in her mind, I was dancing to Christmas music the entire time she was at school. She is home a lot of times during the day now, and she wants the Christmas music on 24/7. I can't handle it on all of the time, so she calls me a grinch. I thought today I would wake her up with some Christmas music and some Gingerbread pancakes! Nothing says Christmas more than gingerbread!

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Pancakes
adapted from Cake Student

2 tsp fresh ginger minced
1 cup better batter gluten-free flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch ground cloves
dash of salt
1 cup milk
4 eggs, separated
1/2 cup molasses

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, spices, salt) and the ginger.
Separate the eggs, place egg whites in your electric mixer bowl, the yolks in a small bowl. Beat the egg whites until foamy and fairly stiff.
In the egg yolk bowl, stir in the milk and molasses.
Add the yolk mixture to the dry mixture. Finally fold in the egg whites.
Add butter to the griddle, drop on spoonfuls of the batter. Its ready to flip when you see bubbles in the middle of the pancake and its golden on the bottom, about 3-5 minutes on each side.

I served mine with some vanilla caramel syrup. You can make this easily by heating butter, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla in a pan. Heat until the right consistency. 

Now if that recipe wasn't good enough. I have something even better!
