Chocolate cherry puff pancake

So, last night I saw this recipe at two peas and their pod and decided to do my own spin on it for breakfast this morning by making it more like our peach puff pancake which everyone really likes.  Aaron didn't care for it, but Benjamin couldn't get enough of it.  It wasn't overly sweet, and no one put syrup or even powdered sugar - nothing on it.  (Maybe Aaron would have liked it more that way.)  I thought it was a nice change to peach puff.  I liked the cherry/chocolate flavor, but then again, I really like cherries, and I really like chocolate.  :)


  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups cherries (I used frozen pie cherries - just regular cherries, not cherry pie filling)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 425.  Toss the cherries with 1 Tablespoon of sugar.  Place butter and sugared cherries in the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan and put in the oven until butter has melted. (it is fine if the oven is still pre-heating)
  2. While the butter melts, Combine remaining ingredients in a blender.  Blend until smooth, scraping sides if necessary.  
  3. Once butter has melted, pour chocolate mixture over the butter and cherries.  Bake for 25 minutes or until set in the center and puffed on the sides.
