  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose)
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2¼ cups milk
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fancy molasses (not blackstrap)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Butter for griddle or frying pan
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ground ginger. Whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla and oil. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir well, until no streaks of flour remain.
  4. Preheat a frying pan to medium heat or a griddle to 350°. Use spatula to spread butter over cooking surface to prevent sticking. Drop batter by approximately ⅓ cups onto preheated pan and spread into even circles. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the top has bubbles that stay. Flip and continue to cook until golden, another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Place cooked pancakes on a cooling rack placed on a rimmed, metal baking sheet and keep warm in a 200° oven. Repeat with the remaining pancake batter, butter griddle between each batch. Serve warm with maple syrup and/or whipped cream.
