Salted caramel gingerbread pancakes are a festive treat to try out this week before all the Christmas spoils. The decadence continues starting now with these pretty pancakes! Apart from all the festive cookies that I have been baking, these pancakes have been the cherry on top! We are certainly getting into the Christmas mood.

Our Christmas tree has been up since the beginning of December and this past week all the Christmas shopping is done and dusted. No last minutes buy, hopefully, because I want to avoid getting stuck in line with our little munchkin. I am so excited to see what his reaction will be once he sees father Christmas (my husband) will he cry or be happy?

One thing for sure it’s going to be interesting and even more fun than last year’s Christmas. We are going to rent a house just out of town, so getting away for a few days is going to be good too! There are loads of eating on the menu and I am looking forward to all of the “family” activities since we don’t get to spend Christmas with our actual family. So this Christmas might come pretty close since we’re all South Africans.

I am so into gingerbread spice and I’ll post another recipe this week for you with this festive spice. The actual thing to these pancakes are the salted caramel…that is seriously amazing! I have been using this sauce on toast, desserts, pumpkin fritters etc. So keep a lookout this week for some more festive inspirations!!
