My Torani Recipe Update

Good Morning everybody! I just wanted to update on my Torani Syrup expreience.  A little background first.  I am a member of SheSpeaks Blogger Society and this is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks and Torani Syrup.  All opinions are totally mine.  I was given the opportunity to try Torani syrup and tell you all about my experience with it.  As I stated in my last post, I was given 2 free bottles of Torani flavored syrup (Gingerbread and Sugar free Salted Caramel) and some $1.00 Torani flavored syrup coupons for future purchases.

At first, I wasn't too sure about the flavors that I was given (Gingerbread and Sugar free Salted Caramel) and what recipe I was going to use because the recipe on their website for these flavors are limited. (  But to my surprise, I came up with one.  Gingerbread pancakes.  That's right! They have all other flavors of pancakes (sweet potato, red velvet, etc.) why not Gingerbread! I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but to my surprise, they were very delicious.  Here is the recipe that I used.

Gingerbread Pancakes

1 cup of Self-rising flour
1 large egg
2-3 tbsp of sugar
2/3 cup milk
4-5 tbsp of Torani Gingerbread flavored syrup

Mix all ingredients  except the Torani Gingerbread flavored syrup in a medium sized bowl making sure that you stir any lumps out of the batter.  You can add more milk depending on how thick you want the batter.  After you get your batter to your desired consistency, add the Torani Gingerbread flavored syrup and stir.  Warm up your skillet and grease it with whatever you choose to (Pam, oil, or butter).  I like to use butter. (That is just my preference) Pour the desired amount of batter in the middle of the pan and let cook until you see little tiny bubbles come up on the top of the pancake.  Then flip the pancake so that it can cook on the other side.  You can pair your pancakes with whatever meat you choose and some eggs, juice, and coffee.  This mix will make about 6-7 pancakes.  I have a small family so this batter is enough for my family but if you have a large family measure accordingly.  If you are time saving family, you can substitute all of the ingredients and use a ready mixed pancake batter (I often buy Krusteaz from Sam's Club) and add water or milk (depending on the instructions on the package) and add your Torani flavored Gingerbread syrup to the mix. Here is a picture of the finished product!

These pancakes were a hit in my household and I will be making them again.  I hope that these will be a hit in your family as well.  Enjoy them I know we did!

I hope that you all will enjoy the recipe that I posted and I hope that you all go out and try the many different other flavors of Torani syrup.  I know that I am going to have fun experimenting with them.
