  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk warmed
  • 2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • fresh fruit and syrup for topping


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, buttermilk, and food coloring. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and whisk until just combined (some small lumps of flour may remain). Let the batter sit for five minutes.
  • While the batter is resting, heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the griddle with cooking spray, and pour the batter by 1/4 cup scoops onto the hot griddle. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until there are bubbles throughout the pancake, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Serve hot with fresh fruit and syrup. Makes about two dozen pancakes.
