  • 3 large egg whites

Pancake batter:

To serve:


  • Use an electric hand mixer* to beat the egg whites until stiff (about 7-8 minutes). Sieve through tigernut flour so there are no crumbs. Mix well all ingredients under ‘pancake batter’ and then gently fold the meringue into the batter. Try not to over mix the meringue and the batter but you want to see the two incorporate well.

  • Preheat a cast iron skillet over low heat and place a ring mold on top. Place parchment paper on the bottom and inside of the mold. Preheat until the skillet feels warm.

  • If the mold comes with a handle like mine, the cake should be cooked through at this point. Transfer them to a plate and gently slide the cake out of the mold. If you mold does not have a handle, this is optional but you can carefully flip to cook the other side for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Top with any berries you prefer and serve hot with maple syrup or any fruit jam.

If you don’t have an electric hand-mixer to beat the egg white, the pancake batter might not rise to tall cake shape. I suggest that you make regular pancake shape - whisk 3 whole eggs and then mix well with the rest of pancake batter ingredients. They are still absolutely chocolatey delicious !
The cook time (15 to 20 mins) is for ring mold size 1-inch tall and 2.5-inch wide. If your mold is taller or smaller than mine, please adjust the cook time accordingly. I don’t recommend using large (or wide) size ring mold to make this recipe.
If you don’t have molds, make regular shape pancakes ! Cook about 3 minute per side in a skillet, greased the skillet with avocado oil.
If the batter feels too thin (or the weather is too), chill the batter in the fridge for 15 minutes for thicker texture.
