Gingerbread Pancakes

We packed all the flavors of gingerbread cookies into these stackable pancakes. They’re barely sweet with a little dark brown sugar and molasses—this is breakfast after all—but that means you can use as much maple syrup as you like. This recipe makes about 12 3½-inch wide pancakes so depending on the size of your griddle or skillet you’ll likely need to work in batches. To keep the first batch warm while you make the second and third and so on, place the pancakes on a wire rack set over a baking sheet in a 250° oven. Everyone’s pancakes will be ready at once and you won’t feel like a short-order cook.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Sweet Potato Frosting

Our friend Genevieve Ko was kind enough to share her recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Cake, which gets topped with a quick 2-ingredient Sweet Potato frosting. The recipes are from her fantastic new cookbook Better Baking. Dish up this dessert on Thanksgiving when you’ve got all of the pies covered but still have a hankering for something rich and chocolatey. You’ll probably have some extra sweet potato puree lying around already.

It’s okay to let the pros take baking off of your plate (it’s plenty full already). These fresh-baked pies have flawless flaky crusts and are carefully delivered straight to your door. No one will ever know you didn’t bake them yourself.

Soba Noodle Veggie Bowl With Tahini Dressing

Think of this dish as a build-your-own noodle bowl—set out the components and let your friends or family assemble as they please. In addition to being healthy and completely customizable, it’s pretty, too, thanks to the assortment of vibrant veggies. The star of the meal is the creamy tahini dressing, which is a riff on an Asian-style peanut butter sauce. We love soba noodles for their quick cook time and nutty flavor, but feel free to use whole-wheat spaghetti instead. For added protein, top the bowls with tofu, shredded chicken, or shrimp. Spicy food lovers can top theirs with sliced fresh chile, too.

Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie

Hosting vegan guests this holiday season? No need to serve them a separate dessert. Whip up this silky chocolate pie at the holidays, and all of your guests—even your vegan and gluten-free ones—will be able to enjoy it (and trust us, they’ll devour it). The press-in crust couldn’t be easier—just dump the almond-based mix into your pie pan and press it to the edges. As it bakes, you can make the creamy chocolate filling, which firms up in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. To serve, top the pie with chocolate shavings, a drizzle of melted chocolate, or a dusting of cocoa powder.
