Another perfect recipe for combining your cup of coffee with your breakfast: mocha pancakes! Delicious and with a hint of cold drip coffee.
Cold drip coffee
Mmmm yes, remember when I told you about the Cold drip coffee I received from Batavia Dutch Coffee? Well, I still had a lot left… Which called for a recipe 😉
I don’t know why but when I have to create something with a given ingredient, all my creativity flies out the window. Anyone else? When I’m in bed, in the shower or on the toilet (hey, don’t judge!) I can come up with the most amazing ideas from scratch, but once I have to build a recipe around an ingredient it just gets a lot harder.
Anyway, all of a sudden I knew what to do: mocha pancakes. How could it have been this hard?! Combining your coffee with breakfast is simply the best thing ever, and adding chocolate to that is just the way to finish it off. Remember the coffee waffles with chocolate drizzle I made?!
Once I knew it was done in no time. Simply assembling the ingredients and making some pancakes: easy peasy! When I took photos I had the brilliant idea of shooting photos with the self-timer when I added the powdered sugar, which was of course a bit… Messy 😉
Anyway, I did end up with this cool GIF. Isn’t it cool? What you see is a typical thing called “avoiding behaviour”: I didn’t want to do what I had to do (sort through hundreds of food photos) so I decided I’d make a GIF instead. Who’s going to stop me!

- 125 g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 egg large
- 125 ml cold drip coffee*
- 100 ml milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 0.5 tbsp sunflower oil
- salt a pinch
Mix together the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.
Add the egg, milk and coffee and mix through. Add vanilla extract, oil and salt and mix until bubbles appear.
If you're using a cooking ring like I did, make sure to grease it first so the batter doesn't stick. Heat up a frying pan with some butter, and add 3 serving spoons full of batter. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Serve with some syrup or powdered sugar, and enjoy!
*: for this recipe I used Batavia Dutch Coffee, which is cold drip coffee. If you have no access to cold drip coffee, feel free to use freshly brewed coffee instead.
If you'd like to have a stronger coffee flavour, swap out 50 ml of milk for another 50 ml of coffee.
