Gingerbread Pancakes with Banana Cream Recipe

To save some time during the busiest of holidays, I make and refrigerate the batter for these pancakes two hours before cooking. This way I don't have to fuss with measuring ingredients while my guests mill about the kitchen anxiously awaiting brunch. —Barbara Brittain, Santee, California
