This gingerbread pancake batter starts with Polly’s delicious plain batter base, with molasses, ground ginger, and cinnamon added. Essentially, it’s ginger snap cookies in pancake form!
Back in 1938, Wilfred “Sugar Bill’’ Dexter opened a tea room along with his wife, Polly, in small-town New Hampshire. Over the years, Polly’s spectacular lineup of scratchmade pancakes and top-quality maple products put it on the map, and today this legendary restaurant is run by Wilfred & Polly’s granddaughter, Kathie, and her husband, Dennis. All of Polly’s pancakes are made according to those old family recipes, right down to the flour, which is milled on-premises. Polly’s Pancake Parlor is such a legend that it was dubbed an American Classic by the James Beard Foundation in 2016.

- Thaw pancake batter in the refrigerator overnight before cooking.
- Preheat a griddle or frying pan to medium-low/medium heat (if you have an infrared thermometer, it should read about 300°F).
- Spray griddle or frying pan with a small amount of cooking spray, or add a small amount of canola oil and spread around griddle/pan with a paper towel (we don’t recommend butter as it smokes around 300°F).
- Spoon out pancakes onto griddle/pan using a ¼ cup measuring cup.

- Flip your pancakes.
- Cook on the other side until just golden brown, which should take 2-3 minutes depending on the heat.
- Remove and serve on a plate with syrup or meat of your choosing.
Insider Tip: If you’re cooking a large batch, you can keep pancakes warm by spreading them out on a sheet tray and putting them in a preheated oven at the lowest temperature it can go (ideally below 200°F).Download Storage and Prep Instructions
