If you’re ever bored of pancakes for your weekend breakfast, try making these Chocolate Dutch Pancakes! You can dress them up just like you would dress your usual pancakes up.
They are the easiest thing to make and wash up after (just one bowl for all that mixing), but you will need a heavy bottomed cast iron pan to make them. One more reason to buy a cast iron pan?
This is my first time ever eating a dutch pancake and I kinda love it! I love the egginess and chocolatey goodness of the pancake, and the fact that you can share it with the whole family! It’s a wholesome breakfast, if you’re wondering. Anything with chocolate is.
I mean, there’s loads of chocolate in there and on top of it, what’s stopping you?
Recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen
4 large eggs
25 grams sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
50 grams all-purpose flour
15 grams unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 cup milk
40 grams unsalted butter
Shaved dark chocolate (to finish)
1. Heat oven to 210 degrees C.

3. Add flour and cocoa, whisking until mostly smooth
4. Drizzle in milk while whisking.
5. Heat a 12-inch ovenproof cast iron skillet on the stove over high heat.
6. Add butter and melt, tipping the pan around so it butters the sides too.
7. Take away the p and scrape batter into pan. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 16 to 18 minutes, until pancake is billowy.
6. Remove from oven and grate chocolate over, as much as you want. Sprinkle some fruits and cut them nicely into quarters/ or just tear them apart because you just can’t wait.
