The 6th recipe in collaboration with Harvey Norman Singapore! The theme this week is to incorporate COFFEE using the Delonghi Espresso Coffee Machine (ETAM29.660.SB). If you do not own a coffee machine, fret not! You can always substitute it with store bought espresso, or instant coffee pack!

This German pancake not only looks good but it taste just as awesome! It is so easy almost anyone can make this at home.

So what goes well with Coffee? ....  'CHOCOLATE' of course! & what goes well with chocolate? - For the balance - I'd go for banana! As there isn't any sugar added in the pancake base, I've decided to use caramelized bananas + mocha drizzle (syrup) to make up for the sweetness since it's a dessert after all!

  • 1.5 tbs of cocoa powder
  • 35 g of butter

Caramel Bananas

  • 15 g of butter
  • 4 whole banana, halved

PREPARATIONS

Chocolate Espresso Dutch Baby

In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients together till well incorporated (except butter) . 

Preheat a cast iron pan on medium high heat. Add in the butter, when the butter is fully melted & turning brown, add in the mixture. Off the heat and set the cast iron in the oven at preheated oven 220C for 12 to 16 minutes, or till the pancake puffs up!

Caramel Bananas

In a saute pan, add in butter & sugar on medium heat. When the sugar starts to melt & caramelize (turn brown), add in the bananas. Lightly coat with the caramel & off the heat. Do not cook the bananas for too long.

Mocha Drizzle

Over a pot of boiling water (low heat), in a mixing bowl, add in the chocolate bars, milk & espresso. Keep stirring until bar melts & form a thick syrupy mixture. Put the mocha drizzle over warm water in a mixing bowl to prevent it from getting lumpy (solidify).

When the dutch baby is done, remove from oven, add in caramel bananas & crushed nuts. Dust with icing sugar. & mocha drizzle to finish off.

You're ready to serve!
