1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Toppings:

Maple syrup
Whipped cream
Cranberry sauce
Chopped pecans or walnuts
Sliced strawberries or raspberries
Powdered sugar for dusting



Preheat Your Pan or Griddle:
Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. If using a skillet, lightly grease it with butter or oil.

Mix Dry Ingredients:
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and all the spices until well combined.

Combine Wet Ingredients:
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter or oil, and vanilla extract until smooth.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Cook Pancakes:
Ladle the batter onto the preheated skillet or griddle, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and the edges begin to look set, about 2-3 minutes.

Flip and Cook:
Carefully flip the pancakes using a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side or until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve Warm:
Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining pancakes.

Serve and Enjoy:
Serve the pancakes warm with your choice of toppings. Drizzle with maple syrup, add a dollop of whipped cream, sprinkle with chopped nuts, and garnish with berries. Dust with powdered sugar for an extra festive touch.
