Filling and Topping


Chocolate Pancakes

1. Combine eggs, sugar, and milk in a large bowl.  Whisk well.  Sift in flour and cooca powder.  Add salt.  Mix until just combined. 

2. Heat a small non-stick pan with butter over medium-high heat. Pour a scant ½ cup batter into pan and tilt to coat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until lightly browned and then flip the crepe. Cook the second side for one additional minute, until light brown. Stack the crepes on a heatsafe plate and continue making crepes until you finish the batter. Melt more butter in pan as needed. You should get about ten crepes.
