To get started, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1.7 ounces (50 g) of sugar
  • 2.5 cups (600 ml) of milk
  • 9 ounces (250 g) of flour

Let’s begin by preparing the pancake batter:

Step 1: In a bowl, beat the eggs and add a pinch of salt, along with the vanilla extract and sugar. Mix everything together until well combined.

Step 2: Gradually pour in half of the milk while continuing to mix. Then, add the flour and cornstarch to the mixture, followed by the remaining milk. Mix until you have a smooth batter.

Step 3: Strain the batter to ensure there are no lumps, then stir in the melted butter. Divide the batter into quarters.

4. Creating the Two-Color Effect

Now, let’s add some flair to our pancakes:

Step 1: Take one portion of the batter and mix in the cocoa powder until fully incorporated, creating a cocoa batter.

Step 2: Transfer the cocoa batter into a bottle for easier use. You can also use a piping bag if preferred.

5. Cooking the Perfect Pancakes

It’s time to cook our patterned pancakes:

Step 1: Heat a non-stick pan over low heat and lightly grease it with butter or oil.
