Fluffy Mocha Chip Pancakes

  • Author: Jess Bunn
  • Total Time: 30 Minutes
  • Yield: 8 Servings
  • Diet: Vegetarian


  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups milk (or buttermilk)
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 50g chocolate

For serving (optional)

  • chocolate sauce
  • cacao nibs for some crunch (or use nuts)

Strong coffee for pancakes

  • 3 Tbsp high-quality ground filter coffee
  • 2/3 cup boiling water


  1. Brew your coffee by placing the coffee grounds into a coffee press or plunger. Add the boiling water and allow the coffee to steep for 6 minutes. Once ready, push down the plunger and set it aside to cool until needed
  2. In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, coffee, egg and melted butter and mix until smooth.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a small knob of butter, then pour or scoop the batter onto the hot pan, using approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Once the batter has settled sprinkle some chocolate chips over the pancake batter. Cook on medium until the bottom of the pancake is golden and bubbles start to form on the top, then flip the pancake to brown the other side.
  4. Stack up your pancakes and serve hot, with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a sprinkle of cacao nibs.


Using buttermilk in place of milk will give your pancakes a lovely Flavour and help them get extra fluffy. If using buttermilk, you can add 2 Tbsp more coffee to your batter.
