What do you have for breakfast on Christmas day?

The only day of the year that you're supposed to enjoy every meal, plus canapes, glasses of fizz, and selection chocolates. Phew!

I've been training all month, so I think I'm going to handle it this year.

Then January will come, and we will all be trying to stay healthy.

I will get my personal trainer back as soon as the holidays are over.

She helped me a lot last year, and I kept it that way, right up until the moment my kitchen fell off and the boxes took over the living room (meaning I couldn't handle myself easily anymore, and I didn't have room to do exercise). In the living room). Poor excuse I know.

I've probably put half of the stone I lost, so I have to be careful not to have a whole stone arrive in January!

As I look forward to eating healthier again and exercising more, I quite enjoy the indulgence of December.

I am looking forward to preparing these gingerbread pancakes for Christmas morning. Topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup, and served with a steaming hot cappuccino. Mmm !!

I could even go for a little edible glitter…

I hope my new hob has been installed by then, and I'm going to try my new warmer drawer to keep them warm too (a low oven works too).

The kids love them completely, though I imagine they will be too distracted by the big stack of gifts to really focus on breakfast!

Maybe I'll prepare them for Christmas Eve dinner.

Who says I can't eat pancakes for dinner!

Course: breakfast

  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar or molasses
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugars, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves in a large bowl. Mix until combined.

  • Add the egg, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and buttermilk, then mix until combined with a balloon whisk.

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet (skillet) over medium heat, then carefully wipe the butter with a kitchen towel so that the pan is finely coated. Pour enough mix to make three pancakes (about 60 ml or ¼ cup of the mix per pancake). Flip the pancakes when bubbles form on top and then pop, and the edges start to look firm (about 2-3 minutes). Cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the mixture, until all the pancakes are cooked (you can keep the pancakes warm in a very low oven while preparing each batch).

  • Serve the pancakes topped with a little butter and a drizzle of maple syrup. You can also decorate with mini gingerbread cake toppers, blueberries, and some edible glitter.
