Rooibos Chocolate Bomb Infused Pancakes

Don’t just stop at enjoying a cup of tea with your breakfast; enjoy it in your breakfast! Adapted from the The Food Girl in Town blog, Gabby Peyton’s pancake recipe is a cheeky way of making an indulgent cup of Rooibos Chocolate Bomb even more delectable.

Rooibos Chocolate Bomb Infused Pancakes with Dark Chocolate Syrup

Pancake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons Rooibos Chocolate Bomb
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon oil

​Dark Chocolate Syrup Ingredients: 

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. To infuse the milk for the pancake mix: Heat 2 cups of whole milk with 2 tbsp. of Rooibos Chocolate Bomb in a saucepan until almost boiling. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside for at least one hour (up to four) in order for tea to fully infuse the milk.
  2. To make the syrup: Break 100g of dark chocolate into small pieces and melt in a pot with 1/3 cup of water. Once chocolate is fully melted, add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Once combined, keep syrup on low temperature to ensure it stays warm and gooey.
  3. Once the milk has been infused, strain it with a fine sieve to remove the rooibos.
  4. For pancakes: heat skillet to medium high heat. Combine 1 cup flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, and beaten egg into a bowl. Add 1 cup of the rooibos infused milk and mix until mixture is smooth.
  5. Grease skillet with 1 tbsp of oil and make pancakes. The pancakes will be a pinky brown colour and when they cook will look almost burnt, but this is normal!
  6. Serve warm chocolate syrup over pancakes and enjoy!
