  • Griddle
  • Flipper
  • mixing bowl
  • spatula
  • oven
  • baking sheet


  • 2 cups Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix
  • 2 cups Cherry juice
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Maraschino cherries chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter for frying


  • Preheat oven to 250F
  • In a large bowl combine Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix, cocoa powder and cherry juice. Mix until combined.
  • Heat a griddle or non-stick frying pan until medium-high. Spoon a small dab of butter onto the hot surface and once it has melted spoon batter, remembering to leave space between each pancake so you can flip them easily.
  • Top each pancake with chocolate chips and Maraschino cherries.
  • Once small bubbles form on the top of each pancake, typically 3-5 minutes, flip to cook on both sides evenly.
  • Prepare pancakes until you have finished the batter. Slide pancakes onto baking sheet to keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve.
  • Stack 3-4 pancakes on individual plates and slather with fresh ricotta cheese and cherry pie filling. Serve with maple syrup.
