Updated February 12, 2013

Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon green food color
  • 2 large eggs

Mascarpone Cream

  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Maple syrup, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, stir flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well mixed.
  • 2
    In large bowl, combine remaining pancake ingredients. Slowly add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture, beating with whisk until smooth; set aside.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla.
  • 4
    Heat nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375°F. Grease griddle with vegetable oil if necessary or spray with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto pan to form medium-sized pancakes. Cook pancakes until bubbly on top, puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other sides until golden brown.
  • 5
    Serve with mascarpone cream and maple syrup.

  • For a healthy update, substitute half of the flour with whole wheat flour, and skip the butter altogether.
  • Not St. Patty’s Day? No problem. Simply swap the green food coloring for 3 to 4 teaspoons red food color.
