Fluffy and Super Easy Mascarpone Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce and topped with raspberries, an indulgent treat for Pancake Day. Super quick to make, these pancakes make a great brunch that can be enjoyed with your loved ones. Perhaps a well-deserved treat for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day too?
This must be one of the most decadent treat I have had in quite a while. Not that these chocolate pancakes are that super unhealthy, although they do have added refined sugar, and are served with an exquisite chocolate sauce.
But because lately I've been rather good at staying away from anything sweet. But Pancake Day is only once a year, and that definitely calls for a celebration.
I could have indulged again in some yummy low carb almond pancakes, but I needed to get the whole family to enjoy, and these fluffy pancakes just hit the spot.
Now, you can, of course, have these pancakes any time of the year, not only on Pancake Day. If you feel like having a weekend treat, this is the perfect recipe for you.
Look how fluffy these amazing chocolate pancakes with mascarpone are! Cooked to perfection, light, and they stay fluffy long after they've been cooked.
Some pancakes are only fluffy when they are warm, and tend to become rubbery once they cool down. But not these super delicious pancakes! So, what's the secret to some heavenly chocolate pancakes? Just a few tricks, and you can have these beauties on the plate too.
How to make fluffy chocolate pancakes with mascarpone
Maybe mascarpone is not a usual addition to pancakes, but trust me, it made all the difference. Its silkiness, and that divinely creamy texture made these pancakes out-of-this-world delicious.
I have used cocoa powder, but feel free to use raw cacao as well if you have any. It can only make them even better.
- in a bowl, sift the flour, add the baking powder and cocoa powder
- beat the eggs well with a pinch of salt until fluffy
- add the mascarpone and use a hand blender to blend everything well.
A blender is a must, by hand it's not that easy to get rind of lumps. You can try with a whisk, but the blender is the best.
- pour the mixture over the flour, add vanilla extract and the milk, and use the blender again to get a smooth paste
- heat up a non-stick pan, add a drop of oil or butter, then add a ladleful of batter
- cook on both sides for 1-2 minutes until cooked through and fluffy
- repeat with the remaining batter
What to serve with these yummy pancakes
Now, you can choose to serve them just with the good old maple syrup or honey, but the chocolate sauce takes them to the very next level.
Once the pancakes are ready, you get to make the chocolate sauce, it only takes 5 minutes or even less. Now, I have this fantastic chocolate sauce recipe, which is just perfect for these pancakes.
Since the chocolate sauce recipe is already on the blog, I won't duplicate it over here, but trust me, it's dead easy to make it. Do give it a try!
These pancakes are pure heaven, forget about rubbish pancake mix that stores have to offer, you can have homemade pancakes from scratch.
