Beautiful and so easy to make

Hey friends, I’m so excited because on the 7th of July is World Chocolate Day!

Everyday I’ll be sharing all my favourite chocolate desserts with you, both old and new for you to try and enjoy.

I’m kicking things of with a gorgeous plate of ombre pancakes, they look complicated, but all it takes is a few teaspoons of cocoa powder.

Let me know what you’ll be baking up to celebrate 🍾 😉.

Chocolate Ombre Pancakes

1 ½ cups cake flour

3 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 ¼ cups milk

1 Large egg

3 tablespoons butter or oil, melted

5 teaspoons sifted cocoa powder


1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

2. Divide the batter equally into 3 bowls. Add 2 teaspoons of cocoa to one bowl and 3 to the other.

3. Heat a non-stick pan and melt a dab of butter, add a 1/4 cup of the lightest batter and flip when bubble start to form on the uncooked side. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes. Continue with the remaining batter.

4. Stack the pancakes starting from the darkest to lightest. Serve with double cream yogurt, honey and fresh berries. A little chocolate drizzle also never hurt.
