Chocolate German Pancake
- 1 cup flour -
- pinch salt -
- 1/3 cup sweetened cocoa powder or unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon espresso powder
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 3/4 cup milk -
- 2-4 tablespoons butter -
- 1 teaspoon vanila -
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cocoa powder, espresso powder and brown sugar. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together. Then beat the egg mixture into your flour mixture. Throw your 9 or 10 inch cast iron skillet into your oven while it preheats to warm it up. The cast iron skillet must be hot when you pour in your batter. Once ready to bake, remove pan from oven and add butter to your pan. Return pan to your oven until butter melts, a minute or two. We generally use between 2 and 3 tablespoons of butter when making each pancake. Once butter is melted pour your prepared batter into your hot pan. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 19 to 24 minutes. Serve immediately.
