Double Chocolate Pancakes


These gourmet pancakes are a decadent way to start the morning. They are a frequent request when my kids have friends stay overnight. They are very rich, yet light and fluffy. I find them great as is, but you are welcome to take breakfast to the extreme by adding whipped cream, sliced bananas, or chocolate syrup.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix flour, chocolate chips, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.

  2. Combine milk, egg, butter, and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour over flour mixture; stir only enough to blend.

  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
