Gingerbread Pancakes

(8 servings)

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 6 Tablespoons ground hazelnuts
  • 3 cups milk
  • 6 egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons dark molasses
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa, ginger, cinnamon and cloves; stir in hazelnuts. Set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together milk, egg whites and molasses.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour wet ingredients into it. Stir just enough to moisten; batter will be lumpy.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Ho ho ho! You'll be jolly like Santa Claus when you bite into these pancakes full of holiday flavor.
