White chocolate stuffed pancakes is one of my favourite recipes ever. I created it because my kids wanted chocolate pancakes, I thought of stuffing… then I tried dark chocolate, which is gorgeous but a bit too strong in taste for my mob. So I thought, the flavour of the batter itself is creamy, why not white chocolate. So here it is.
It has become a family favourite. As it is a little longer to make (not much longer) than a plain pancake, you might want to do a small pile before calling the family to the table. It’s hard to wait…
Because white chocolate is a bit rich, I opted for a very light batter.
I hope you will like it as much as we do here :)
One important thing in this recipe is to prepare all the ingredients, each in a little bowl, and then mix them, one after another, in a specific order! If you don’t, it can get messy, too lumpy or weird.
Another trick is to keep it lumpy :) Use a fork and lightly beat it as you would for an omelette.
It should look a bit like this.
Use nice cooking white chocolate, not the cheap version.
Pour the batter in a medium hot pan and wait for it to cook a bit. Put a square of white chocolate in the middle.
Wait for it to set/cook a bit more. Add a tiny bit of batter on top of the chocolate. Turn ! When you do turn the pancake the batter will still be uncooked on the top. Don’t worry, turn quickly with a long flat spatula. The first ones might look like a “splash” but you will soon get the hang of it.
Once turned, don’t cook it too much. If it’s a bit doughy it’s gorgeous…
Now it’s your turn. I would love to hear from you!
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 cap white wine vinegar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 cups self-raising flour
- ½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 bar white cooking chocolate
- Pour the milk in a small bowl. Add the cap of vinegar. Leave it curdle.
- In a separate small bowl, lightly beat the 2 eggs with a fork.
- In another small microwavable bowl, melt the butter for 30 second then beat with a fork or whisk. Don't let it get too hot or cool it down. It shouldn't get a temperature shock with the milk or it will make butter nuggets ;)
- In a larger bowl, sift the dry ingredients (flour, bicarb, salt, sugar). Make a hole in the middle.
- Pour IN ORDER and each time quickly but lightly stir with a fork: curdled milk, eggs and butter.
- Keep the batter reasonably lumpy.
- Leave it to rest while your cut the chocolate in squares and you set the table. Prepare a serving dish.
- Heat a pan on medium (5 or 6 on my induction).
- Pour a small ladle of batter.
- Let it cook a little bit before placing a chocolate square in the middle.
- Cook it a little bit more and add a tiny bit of batter on top of the chocolate to cover it.
- Cook more and turn with a long and flat spatula.
- Make a batch and enjoy!
