Triple Chocolate Explosion

Chocolate is an essential ingredient when making desserts. I haven’t introduced any chocolate pancake recipes yet in my blog because it is so damn difficult to choose which one to pick first. I came up with this classic combination of raspberries and chocolate. I couldn’t tho decide one chocolate flavour so here is a dessert based on three chocolate flavours and raspberries. Perfect dessert to enjoy after a bit lighter dinner… I served this dessert with some austrian sweet dessert wine Willi Opitz Cuvee Beerenauslese but if you or your guests don’t like so sweet flavours – champagne is always a good pairing with sweet desserts. Or well if you ask me… Good champagne goes every time with everything!

WHITE CHOCOLATE PANCAKES:

Serves 4 to 6

4 dl all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 dl heavy milk
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
white chocolate chips

Put all the dry ingredients in to a large bowl and whisk them properly together. Then whisk in a separate bowl together milk, eggs, oil and melted butter. Pour the milk mixture into the flour until the batter is smooth and creamy. Add white chocolate chips into mixture. Heat an oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Brown on both sides.

DARK CHOCOLATE SAUCE:

150 g dark chocolate (70 % cocoa)
0,5 dl cream
2 tbsp syrup
butter
salt

After baking pancakes start making dark chocolate sauce. Heat cream in a sauce pan and add chocolate when it starts boiling. Let chocolate melt into cream and mix all the time. Finally add syrup, butter and hint of salt.

SUPER EASY RASPBERRY ICE CREAM:

300 g frozen raspberries
100 g sugar
150 ml cream

This version of ice cream is incredible easy. First mix raspberries and sugar together in a blender. Mix until raspberries are chopped and then add cream. Mix until its smooth silky! Put into freezer or serve immediately with pancakes. Try also with other fruits or berries.
