  • Cooking Method: Skillet
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional but highly recommended!)

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make sure everything gets acquainted.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and mix in the buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Tender, loving care is the secret ingredient here!
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Lumps are cool – embrace them.
  4. If you’re going for that extra chocolatey hit, fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Grease it lightly with butter or cooking spray. Shine like a star!
  6. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. No acrobatics needed.
  7. Repeat the process until the batter is gone. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven, if desired.


Mix things up! Swap the buttermilk with almond milk or regular milk with a dash of lemon juice. Instead of chocolate chips, sprinkle in some berries, nuts, or even a dash of cinnamon for a twist. For garnish, think whipped cream, maple syrup, fresh fruit, or a drizzle of melted chocolate. Here’s a wild idea: a scoop of ice cream could turn breakfast into dessert heaven. Don’t forget to clean the skillet between batches if it gets too chocolaty – all good things in moderation, right? Happy flipping!
