Serves: 12 pancakes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup strong coffee
  • 2 tsp. coffee extract
  • 2 tsp. + ½ tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup finely chopped dark chocolate, divided
  • 8 oz. softened mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • Cocoa powder for garnish
  • Maple syrup for drizzling
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar together in a large bowl.
  3. Measure buttermilk in a large measuring cup, add coffee, coffee extract, 2 tsp. vanilla and eggs. Whisk until combined. Add to flour mixture along with melted butter and ¼ cup of chopped chocolate. Whisk just until combined. DO NOT OVER MIX! Let the batter sit for five minutes.
  4. Add mascarpone, powdered sugar and remaining vanilla to a small bowl. Whisk until combined.
  5. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle pan to a medium heat. Spoon ¼ cup of batter on to griddle. Pour as many as will fit on the griddle. Cook until the edges turn golden brown and bubbles come to the top of the batter, flip and cook another 1-2 minutes. Add cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
  6. Once all of the pancakes are cooked, stack three on each plate. Top with ¼ of the mascarpone. Sprinkle with chopped chocolate and dust with cocoa powder. Serve with maple syrup.
