  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt


  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp red food colouring
  • 1/4 cup of butter melted

Butter Pecan Maple Syrup

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb. butter melted
  • 1 cup pecan halves lightly toasted in the oven
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tbsp water
  • pinch salt

Whipped Cream Cheese

  • 4 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • if desired some citrus zest.


  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients and make a well in the center.

  2. Stir the wet ingredients except for the melted butter together and pour into the well in the dry ingredients.

  3. Mix together until nearly combined – you don’t want to overwork this batter.

  4. Fold in the melted butter.

  5. Use 1/4 cup of batter per pancake; cook as with other pancakes, flipping to the second side once it has begun to puff up and there are bubbles all across the surface.
