Turmeric+Ginger Pancakes

Over the weekend, I made a batch of pancakes as per the request of my boys. I make my pancakes from scratch and they love them.
The recipe below, makes a batch of about 10-15 pancakes. I tend to freeze about half each time and they re-heat in a toaster or microwave really well.
I decided to play around and added the power spices, turmeric and ginger, to a batch for myself. No, my kids did not eat these! They prefer them plain dipped in honey or syrup, of course.
I also sliced up some sweet peaches for a few of them as well as blueberries. I finished them off with a light sprinkle of honey and powdered sugar. They were delicious! Try them for yourself with the recipe below.
