    A chocolate-kissed version of the traditional German Pancake--full of flavor and just as easy!

    • 1/3 cup American Heritage® Finely Grated Chocolate Drink
    • 1 cup (4.3 ounces) all-purpose flour, lightly spooned into a measuring cup and leveled with a knife
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon espresso powder (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 4 eggs
    • 3/4 cup whole milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup butter
    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, brown sugar, espresso powder (if using), and chocolate drink. Set aside.

    Step 2

    Place a 9" cast iron skillet into the oven and allow the skillet to heat.

    Step 3

    Place the eggs, milk, and vanilla in the jar of a blender and pulse until blended. Add the flour mixture and blend for 15-20 seconds or until completely smooth.

    Step 4

    Drop the butter into the hot skillet and allow the butter to melt. Carefully (and using a hot pad) tilt the pan so the butter coats the bottom of the pan. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 20-24 minutes or until the pancake is puffed. Remove from oven and serve immediately with fresh berries, powdered sugar, and, if desired, syrup.
