Chocolate & Green Tea Pancakes

This morning after sending my boy to school, quickly whip up this yummy pancakes for breakfast :) Besides making some Chocolate Pancakes, I created another Green Tea Pancakes by substituting the cocoa powder with green tea powder. As I was updating the recipe, then realise I've only added 1 tbsp cocoa powder instead of 2 tbsp! preggie woman really absent-minded! hahaha...no wonder when I taste the chocolate pancakes, it is not chocolaty enough! But the green tea pancakes taste fine though I only added 1 tbsp of green tea powder :)

Instead of serving the pancakes with honey, maple syrup or fruits, I used japanese red bean paste to sandwich the pancakes :) the presentation looks nice right? I will chill the balance pancakes and warm up tomorrow morning for my boy to bring to school :)

Chocolate Pancakes
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (subsitute 1 tbsp green powder for Green Tea Pancakes)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 30gm butter, melted
  1. Sift flour & cocoa powder into mixing bowl. Add in sugar and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre.
  2. Add milk, egg & butter into flour mixture. Whisk until all liquid is incorporated and batter is free of lumps. Cling wrapped for 20 mins.
  3. Lightly greased a non-stick frying pan, pour 1/4 cup batter and cook over low heat for 1-2 mins. Turn over pancake and cook the other side. Repeat process with remaining batter and grease pan when necessary.
To serve : Layer chocolate pancakes & green tea pancakes with red bean paste.
