Ginger Pancakes

Inspired by pancakes she enjoyed in Austin, TX while in town to attend Rachael’s South by Southwest Festival Feedback Party, Louisa Shafia created this delicious Ginger Pancakes recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons dried ground ginger, tightly packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons oil or melted butter, plus extra for cooking
  • Maple syrup, for serving


In a large bowl, whisk together the ginger, baking soda, flour, cornmeal and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, honey, egg and butter. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until the batter comes together.

Heat a sautée pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or oil, followed by a scant 1/4 cup of pancake batter. Allow the pancake to cook for just over a minute. Flip and cook the second side until golden, about a minute. Repeat using the remaining batter. Serve the pancakes hot with maple syrup.
