Whole Wheat Marble Pancakes with Homemade Chocolate Sauce


I’m in that zone where I may not be craving it but I’m definitely clawing at chocolate flavoured things the way a zombie would paw at your pretty little brain. Sans the sound effect, obviously.

I’ve been asked every now and then to develop an eggless and whole wheat pancake recipe. And I did. Except, that, I went a step ahead and turned it into a marble one. And, for the uninitiated, cakes and pancakes etc., with this design are called marble. Marble cakes, pancakes, cookies, ice cream. Possibilities are endless.

Anyway, here’s how I went about it.



For the pancakes:                                   (makes: 6-7, medium sized) 

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • For sweetening: 2 teaspoons of sugar / any substitute / 2 tablets of sugarfree
  • Oil/butter for cooking

For the chocolate sauce:

  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tablespoon milk
  • For sweetening: 1 teaspoon sugar / 1 sachet of sugarfree / a couple of pieces of chocolate of your choice



  • Combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the 3/4 cup milk and sweetener. Mix till everything is well incorporated.
  • In a separate and smaller bowl, pour out a third of the batter. Add cocoa 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder, and 1 tablespoon milk. Stir.


  • Take the vanilla bowl and try to collect/push the batter to one side. And on the emptied side, pour the chocolate batter.
  • Give everything just TWO slow stirs, maximum.


  • Heat a pan, preferably a non-stick (I used a not so non stick hehe) and add a few drops of oil or grease it with a bit of butter.
  • Take a tablespoon of the batter (avoid stirring the batter) and place one on the pan. I make them like 3″ in diameter so being medium sized, 3 fit on one pan, and it makes my work easier anyway.
  • Let them cook on each side for at least a minute of low-medium heat before taking them out.



Chocolate Sauce:

If using a microwave:

  • Microwave the milk for 10 seconds on the reheat mode. Add cocoa powder and sweetener (if using). Stir till there are no lumps.  Add the chocolate (if using).
  • Microwave for another 10 seconds. It’ll boil and bubble. Take it out and stir again. Done.

If using a stove:

  • Heat the milk till it’s hot but not boiling. Turn off the heat. Add cocoa powder. Stir. And the sugar/chocolate (whichever you’re using). Stir.
  • Heat it again, and turn off the heat the moment it begins to boil. Done.
