Maintaining a proper health kick is a no-brainer New Year’s resolution. And while we are big proponents of simple, clean cooking in January and beyond, we also believe that there’s nothing wrong with a little indulgence every once and a while. Especially when it comes to cooking for a crowd.
Here’s an idea for your next brunch spread: a pancake recipe remix that plays with coffee as a key ingredient. Developed with our friends at La Colombe, this Mocha Latte Pancake recipe adds a dash of creativity (and caffeination) to a breakfast classic. And it’s deceptively easy to pull-off.
Makes: 6-7 Pancakes
Prep & Cook Time: 30 Minutes
- 1 cup AP flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup - 1/2 chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup La Colombe Coffee Cold Brew Brazilian
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Latte Whipped Cream Topping:
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tbsp. La Colombe Triple Shot Draft Latte (or Cold Brew Brazilian)
- 1 tsp. sugar
Coffee Maple Syrup
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup La Colombe Cold Brew Brazilian
- Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt in your medium sized Equal Parts Prep Bowl and mix together until combined.
- In a separate Prep Bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and coffee. Then whisk in the melter butter to combine.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and, with your Equal Parts Spatula, gently stir to combine. (Don’t over-stir - it’s okay if there are a few lumps!) Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Add the chocolate chips, gently stirring a couple of times to combine.
- Heat your Big Pan over medium-high heat. Brush with a little butter or oil if you like, and drop the batter into the pan using your 1/4 Measuring Spoon.
- Flip pancake when it begins to bubble or bottom is golden brown.
- Serve with coffee maple syrup and/or latte whipped cream.
- Latte Whipped Cream: Using a standing mixer with a whisk attachment, a hand mixing, or your Equal Parts Whisk and Prep Bowls, combine the cream and coffee. Whip until thick. Add sugar and continue to whip to combine.
- Coffee Maple Syrup: Stir to combine. You can adjust the amounts, depending on how strong you prefer your coffee flavor. There’s no harm in a quick taste test.
