Yesterday, being a lazy Saturday morning, I made some pancakes for breakfast. The kids were asking for whipped cream and chocolate syrup to go with it and we said that we only do that with chocolate pancakes. So, this morning, the kids asked for chocolate pancakes. We’ve always bought a mix for chocolate pancakes but since we haven’t done that in a while, I decided to look for a recipe online and mix a batch from scratch.
Thanks to the Internet, I found this recipe that doesn’t call for buttermilk. I just tweaked it a bit by adding 3 teaspoons of baking powder which made the pancakes fluffy. I also skipped the chocolate chips and the powdered sugar.
I made the pancakes and Jon made the chocolate syrup. The cream, unfortunately, didn’t want to get whipped so it’s just cream.
Get a pancake.
Put a dollop of cream, as much or as little as you like.
Then drizzle with chocolate syrup.
It was great! Better than the box mix we used before. It would be even better with sausages or bacon on the side, which unfortunately we didn’t have at that time. Dig in!
