adapted from Gingerbread, by Jennifer Lindner McGlinn


  • 1 1/4 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1%)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • maple syrup, for serving (optional)


In a large bowl, whisk together the whole-wheat flour, AP flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and orange zest.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl melt 3 tablespoons of the butter. Let cool a bit then whisk in the milk, egg and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk just until combined (some lumps are fine). Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

(Note: If you want to make all of the pancakes before serving, preheat oven to 200 F. Place a baking sheet lined with foil on the middle rack.)

Using the remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter, heat about 1 teaspoon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of batter to the pan for each pancake (you can probably make 2 at a time if your pan is large enough). Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and they begin to brown just a bit around the edges, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side for about 2 minutes more. Move the pancakes to the warm oven (if you need to stack the pancakes on the baking sheet, do so between layers of parchment paper). Wipe the pan with a paper towel, melt another teaspoon of butter and repeat the cooking process. 

Makes about fourteen 4-inch pancakes.
