Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Pancakes

Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Pancakes

I made these delicious Chocolate Mousse filled Chocolate Pancakes for dessert the other night and, good grief!  They were terrific !!!

The chocolate mousse filling is rich, smooth and so very chocolatey and you can even taste a hint of the espresso.

I made them fairly thick, as I did not want to roll them up the usual way, but rather folded them in an "S" shape with the filling in between.  You can totally make them thinner, it's up to you.  This recipe yielded 6 thick pancakes and if you make them thinner, you should get around 8 - 10 pancakes.

Just a note - if you do make them thick, one is more than enough per person.   {although, I can not guarantee that you wouldn't want one or two more!}

With Mother's Day in less than 2 weeks,  this would be a nice dessert for Mom  {or breakfast}.

Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Pancakes



1 cup Flour
1 TB Sugar
1 TB Cocoa Powder
Pinch Salt
2 Extra-Large Eggs
2 Egg-Yolks
2 TB Butter, melted
100ml Soda Water


100g Bittersweet Plain Chocolate {70% cocoa solids}, broken into pieces
4 TB Strong Espresso Coffee {use when still hot}
2 Extra-Large Eggs {separated}
1 TB Sugar
1 t Vanilla
100ml Fresh Cream {whipped stiff}
1 TB Caster Sugar
Cocoa Powder, to dust


1.) PANCAKES: Beat together the Flour, Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Salt, Eggs, Egg Yolks and melted Butter - chill for an hour.
2.) Add the Sparkling Water to the batter just before cooking the pancakes - heat a pan and cook the pancakes until all the batter has been used.
3.) MOUSSE:  Melt the Chocolate - add the hot Espresso and stir well - keep aside.
4.) Place the Egg Yolks, Sugar and Vanilla in a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water - beat all the time and cook until the Sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thick and creamy  {about 5 minutes} - add to the chocolate mixture and mix to combine.
5.) Add the Whipped Fresh Cream to the chocolate mixture {fold this in quickly before the chocolate sets}.
6.) Beat together the Egg Whites and Caster Sugar until stiff - fold into the chocolate mixture - chill 10 - 15 minutes.

Serve the Pancakes filled with the Mousse and dust with Cocoa Powder.
