I usually try to explain and introduce my recipes at words, but here all I can think of is: boyfriend-approved. He might be a little partial as he’s totally a white chocolate lover, but I can’t really keep count of how many times he asked me to make these pancakes for breakfast! And it’s not just a weekend thing now. It went beyond that. And I will admit it’s not really a burden to me to cook them, you know.
These pancakes have been perfectioned over a good amount of months testing and experimenting with the recipe, but everytime they came out absolutely delicious, gooey in some points, sweet and rich but somehow delicate. There’s really no wrong way with them. They’re good by their own, but even better if topped with caramel or chocolate sauce, or as an alternative, they pair amazingly with fruits like blueberries or strawberries too!
- 100g plain flour
- 2 tablespoons raw brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons organic virgin coconut oil
- 60/70g white chocolate
- Around 15 tablespoons soy milk (or other non-dairy or regular milk)
- 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
- A pinch of salt
1 :: In a bowl stir together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder until well incorporated.
2 :: In a microwavable bowl place half of the white chocolate cutted into chunky cubes and three teaspoons of coconut oil. Then place in the microwaves for a couple of minutes until the chocolate has melted down completely. Use a teaspoon to give the mixture a nice stir.
3 :: Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients and start adding the milk a tablespoon at a time, stirring well in the meanwhile. Stop when the batter comes together nicely and smoothly but it's not too liquid yet. Use a whisk to remove any lumps.
4 :: Place a nonstick frying-pan on a medium heat and allow it to heat up a little bit. In the meanwhile chop the rest of the white chocolate in small pieces.
5 :: Pour three/four tablespoons in the middle of the pan and, immediately after, place a couple of chocolate cubes on top. Wait until the first bubbles start appearing on the visible side of the pancake, then use a spatula to flip it over and cook it on the other side.
6 :: Do the same with the rest of the pancake batter. Then pile your pancakes in a plate and serve with fresh berries or a sweet indulgent sauce on top... or both!
