    Recipe Introduction

    Nice recipe for brunch. Recommend serving these griddle cakes with orange slices on the side.

    Active time: 45 min Start to finish: 45 min

    List of Ingredients

    For sauce
    1 cup heavy cream
    7 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped
    For griddle cakes
    1/2 cup Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 whole large eggs
    1 large egg yolk
    3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Unsalted butter for greasing griddle


    Make sauce:
    Bring cream to a boil in a 1-quart saucepan, then pour hot cream over chocolate in a bowl, gently whisking until smooth. Keep warm or at room temperature.

    Make griddle cakes:
    Sift together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, then whisk in eggs, yolk, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla until combined well.
    Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over moderately low heat and lightly coat with butter.

    Working in batches of 2 or 3, pour 1/4 cup batter per cake onto hot griddle and cook until bubbles appear on surface, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip cakes with a large spatula and cook until tops spring back when pressed gently, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to griddle between batches.

    Serve cakes in stacks, topped with chocolate sauce.

    Makes 4 dessert or brunch servings.
