Author: Dee Frances
  • ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon (100 g) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (22 g) cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup + 1 tsp (66 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (9 g) baking powder
  • cup (160 ml) milk, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg , at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
  • ¼ cup (60g) unsalted butter to butter cooking
  1. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and baking powder then mix to blend.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, egg, vanilla and olive oil then pour it over the flour mixture. Use a fork or a wooden spoon to mix but just until incorporated, few lumps are ok.
  3. Place a flat pan over medium heat and melt ½ tsp of butter. Use a clean paper towel to clean any excess butter, this step is important because access butter will make it hard to flip the pancakes.
  4. Pour 1/4 -1/3 cup (60-80 ml) of batter in the pan and reduce heat to medium-low, this amount is for a medium pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sides of the pancakes appear mate and you notice some bubbles on top. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional minute.
  5. Serve immediately best drizzled with chocolate syrup and fresh berries.
