    Chocolate marble pancakes with toasted coconut and rum

    Serves: 10 – 12
    Cooking Time: 30 mins


    • Chocolate marble pancakes
    • 150g cake flour
    • 5ml (1 tsp) baking powder
    • pinch salt
    • 1 large egg
    • 375ml (1½ cups) milk
    • 15g butter, melted
    • 60ml (¼ cup) cocoa powder
    • Chocolate rum sauce
    • 100ml fresh cream
    • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 10ml (2 tsp) coconut rum
    • coconut shavings, toasted, to serve



    For the chocolate marble pancakes, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and butter, then gradually whisk into the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter. Divide the batter in half and whisk the cocoa powder into one half until mixed through. Allow to stand, 30 minutes. Pour the chocolate pancake batter into a squeezy bottle or piping bag.


    Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and grease thoroughly. Pipe swirls and marble patterns into the pan using the chocolate batter and allow to cook briefly. Pour 60ml (¼ cup) of the plain batter into the pan and swirl to form a thin coating. When the edges curl and begin turning brown, flip over and fry on the other side, 1 minute. Repeat with the remaining batter.


    For the chocolate rum sauce, heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat and add the chocolate. Add the rum and stir until the chocolate has melted.


    Serve the pancakes drizzled with the sauce and sprinkled with toasted coconut.
