Chocolate Pancakes With Chocolate-Raspberry Sauce Recipe

Step 1

CHOCOLATE PANCAKES: In a medium-sized bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, milk, oil and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually whisk in the liquid mixture, stirring just until combined. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes, or refrigerate for up to 1 hour.

Step 2

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium low heat. When hot, coat it lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Drop 3 to 4 pancakes, using about 1 1/2 tablespoons batter per pancake, into the pan and cook until the underside is browned and the bubbles on top remain open, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Turn the pancakes over and cook until the underside is browned, about 15 seconds. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Step 3

Arrange the pancakes on dessert plates. Top with scoops of frozen yogurt and Chocolate-Raspberry Sauce. Garnish with raspberries. Serves 2.
