Dark Chocolate Pancakes

Our Lindt Master Chocolatiers have put a luxury Lindt twist on this classic favourite thanks to our EXCELLENCE 65% Milk Chocolate and EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate - not forgetting our decadent Lindt Dark Chocolate Spread. Perfect for a special breakfast or weekend brunch.


Chocolatier’s Tip

Serve with a sprinkling of fresh berries for a touch of fruity sweetness to complement the richness of the chocolate. You can also use our Lindt Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, if you prefer.

Lindt Chocolate In This Recipe


Step 1.

Whisk the buttermilk, milk, egg and vanilla extract together in a small jug and set aside.

Step 2.

In a large bowl, sieve together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Add the sugar and mix to combine.

Step 3.

Make a well in the centre and gradually pour in the wet ingredients. Whisk until you have a smooth, thick batter. Add the melted butter and chocolate and mix well. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.

Step 4.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: pour the cream into a small saucepan and slowly bring to a simmer. Add the chopped chocolate, remove from the heat and whisk until smooth and glossy. Pour into a jug.

Step 5.

Brush a nonstick frying pan with a little sunflower oil and place over a medium heat.

Step 6.

Once the pan is hot, pour half a ladle of batter into the pan and gently spread out to form a small disc.

Step 7.

Leave to cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form - don’t be tempted to fiddle with it. Flip using a palette knife or spatula and cook for a further minute or until just firm.

Step 8.

Cook the pancakes in batches, brushing the pan with a little more oil, as needed.

Step 9.

Serve the pancakes, topped with Lindt Dark Chocolate Spread, drizzled with the chocolate sauce (reheating if you prefer it warm) and a sprinkling of chocolate curls (if wished).
