Learning through travel, Abbie has eaten her way through nearly 60 countries. Australia, Finland, Morocco, Japan and France - a few of her culinary favoruites. She's passionate about taking ginger into unexpected places, while still revisiting the classics like her beloved Ultimate Chewy Ginger Snaps. Favourite culinary book: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Favourite moment with a fellow chef: Dinner with Julia Child, 1992. Actually, she was at the next table. We told the waiter, "We'll have what she's having."

Ginger Spice Pancakes

These warmly spiced pancakes have all of the classic flavours of gingerbread. Ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg – oh, yum! Experiment with buckwheat or whole wheat flour if you like. Serve these flavourful pancakes with warm Ginger Syrup and butter.


  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 350ml milk, plus more as needed
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 60g unsalted butter, melted
  • 60ml The Ginger People® Organic Ginger Syrup



  1. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together milk, eggs, butter and 15ml Ginger Syrup in another bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry; stir gently just until lumps are nearly gone. If the batter is too thick, stir in 15-30ml milk as needed. Batter can be used immediately or for best results, let stand 1 hour before baking pancakes.
  4. Preheat electric griddle to medium heat. When a drop of water flicked on the surface sizzles and evaporates quickly, the griddle is ready. Spray griddle with nonstick cooking spray or brush with butter. Spoon 60ml batter onto the griddle for each pancake.
  5. While pancakes cook, add remaining Ginger Syrup to a small saucepan and warm over medium low heat
  6. Cook until bubbles form on top and the pancakes are golden underneath, 1-2 minutes. Flip pancakes over and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a warmed plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. Serve hot pancakes with warm Ginger Syrup.
