  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 6 tablespoons baking powder

  • 3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 6 tablespoons ground hazelnuts

  • 3 cups milk

  • 6 egg whites

  • 6 tablespoons dark molasses

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa, ginger, cinnamon and cloves; stir in hazelnuts. Set aside.

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

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

  4. 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.
