Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

This is a great recipe! Here is what I did to change it. I used my favorite pancake mix and prepared that according to the package. It called for a cup of the mix so I measured everything else accordingly. 1 teaspoon of the coaco powder 1/2 tsp ginger 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp clove (added a dash of nutmeg) and 2 tbsp molasses. I then spooned in a bit more of the pancake mix until the batter had the correct texture. They turned out so good!! My boyfriends family always does a Christmas morning pajama breakfast for friends and family. I think I will whip up the batter and take it over there to cook!! Read More

Although I was excited by the enticing ingredients the final results did not find favor with me. The abundance of baking powder caused a volcano-like effct of the batter. Six extra egg yolks remaining after making pancakes seemed like a waste. In addition two of my three kids said they liked the flavor of other pancakes I make much better. Sorry! Read More

Rating on the recipe as written this would not have been pleasant! 6 T baking powder is way too much!!! I used 1 T and they turned out great! I used whole wheat flour and soy milk to make these into yummy pancakes. Read More

My husband said 'Awesome' just like the other review said. We had it for breakfast. The only problem I had was the molasses that I had such a time getting out. I needed a new jar of molasses. Read More

I assumed that 6 tablespoons of baking powder was a typo and so used only 6 teaspoons - it was still a little salty for my tastes. I also used 3 whole eggs instead of the egg whites. I also added cardamom as someone suggested (1/2tsp cloves 1/2 cardamom). The addition of the hazlenuts was wonderful. Read More

These were a great idea and after a lot of modification they were great-tasting as well! I think there are a number of typos in the original recipe so I came up with my own take on it. Here it is: 2 tbsp baking powder 3 tbsp cocoa 2 tsp ginger 3 eggs some extra flour @1/2 c. to thicken to proper consistency. Enjoy! Read More
