Pancakes are baked from a batter made with eggs, milk and flour. Depending on the region, they are served sweet (with applesauce, jam or chocolate cream, for example) or hearty (with cheese, bacon and onions).
Today I’ll show you a recipe where the pancakes are stacked and filled with chocolate made from dark chocolate & cream. The result is a chocolaty pancake pie, quick & easy to prepare & super delicious. Have fun baking!

Ingredients for 1 Pancake Pie:
- 300 milliliters milk
- 200 grams flour
- 100 milliliters sparkling water
- 3 eggs
- 1 sachet vanilla sugar
- A pinch of salt
- Oil or butter to bake the pancakes
- 250 grams dark chocolate
- 250 milliliters cream
- About 200 grams fresh berries (for example blueberries or raspberries)
- Powdered sugar for garnishing
Required kitchen gadgets, helper & preparations:
- Mixing bowl for the pancake batter
- Bowl for the chocolate ganache
- Pan to bake the pancakes
- Ladle for the batter
- Saucepan to boil up the cream
In a large bowl combine 200 grams flour, 3 eggs, 300 milliliters milk, 100 milliliters sparkling water, 1 sachet vanilla sugar & a pinch of salt. Mix together everything until well combined & you got a lump-free batter.
Break into pieces 250 grams of dark chocolate & place in a bowl. Next, heat up a saucepan adding 250 milliliters of cream over medium heat & bring to a boil. Once the cream starts to simmer, remove from heat & pour over the chocolate. Mix chocolate & cream until the whole chocolate is completely melted, then place the chocolate ganache in the fridge to cool down.
…for the pancakes:
Heat up a pan adding a small dash oil or a flake butter & then bake 10 – 12 pancakes one by one until the whole batter is used up. For that give a ladle batter into the hot pan, spread the batter evenly on the bottom by tossing the pan & bake for about 1 minute on each side over medium heat until golden brown.
Turn or flip the pancakes after 1 minute & bake until done on the other side. Lift the done pancakes out of the pan & stack the pancakes on top of each other on a plate, then allow them to cool down completely.
…for the pancake pie:
Get the chocolate ganache out of the fridge & whisk up with a mixer for 2 – 3 minutes until the ganache starts to get fluffy & slightly brighter. Next, stack pancakes & chocolate ganache alternately on a plate until all ingredients are used up.
Finally cut the pancake pie into pieces, garnish with a few berries & powdered sugar & serve. I wish you lots of fun baking!
