Introduction:

There are two kinds of people in this world.  People who believe in breakfast for dinner and people who don’t believe.  I find that these beliefs stem from early childhood, says the psychologist in me!  Growing up, it wasn’t an uncommon occurrence, just like in my household now.  While I love breakfast for dinner though, my husband finds it rather odd, probably from his meat and potato upbringing.  Luckily, if it involves pancakes, my kids are on board. 

After picking my kids up from daycare on a rainy evening (yes, a perfect night for breakfast for dinner), the thought of double chocolate pancakes hit me!  Why limit myself to just chocolate chip pancakes?!?  This made-from-scratch chocolate batter comes together in minutes, and the final mix in is a half cup of chocolate chips for those that are loco for cocoa!  

Resources:

  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Stirring spoon
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Griddle – electric or stovetop
  • Ladle

Procurements:

  • 1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
  • 3 T. cocoa powder
  • 2 T. powdered sugar
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 T. vegetable oil, plus more for greasing the griddle
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips

Operating Procedures:

Start by whisking together all the dry ingredients including the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Next, in a separate bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and oil.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a spoon until just combined.  The batter may have a few lumps remaining.  Next, you want to gently fold in the chocolate chips.  Set the batter aside while the griddle gets hot. 

Grease the griddle with butter or vegetable oil.  Gently ladle on the pancake batter to the size pancakes of your liking.  Flip.  Cook.  Enjoy.

Proposals:

These are great as is, but would be interested in trying them for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a bit of crushed Oreos and whipped cream on top….a cone replacement of sorts. 

 Closing Remarks:

They make a great special treat for breakfast (or dinner).  As you can see, they were a hit in my household!  Pass the whipped cream please…
