Chocolate Pancakes. Mmmmmm. If these are wrong, please don’t tell me.

I just don’t want to know if they are!

Sam would most likely say the same since he’s the one that requests them time and again. That and his chocolate chip waffles. He’d eat them every day if I let him. Which I don’t, but you know what I mean.

Anyway, it sure is a good thing they are so simple to make.

Serve them with a bit of delicious maple syrup and you are good to go.

Of course, serving them with fresh fruit, a dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate syrup wouldn’t be a bad idea either. Whatever floats your boat.

  17. These were amazing!
    except the sugar was too less.
    Still, will make them once again! 😉

  18. Hi there! I wanted to let you know I featured you on Sugar Blossoms today. Stop by and check it out!

  19. We made these and they are really simple and easy. They taste great but they are more of a dessert.

  20. We made this chocolate syrup for the pancakes that you drizzle on top and it makes them so rich.

  21. These were good but to be honest they need more sugar. I used the recipe to make chocolate peanut butter balls.

  22. Good sweets in the morning

  23. I just made this today. My husband and I actually had 3 each and just finished them. I didnt have self-rising flour so i added 1T baking powder. I used special dark cocoa so it was a bit strong. But all in all, I enjoyed the recipe. Fluffy and yummy! 🙂

  24. Can you make this recipe with milk INSTEAD of buttermilk?

  25. Made this for pancake day, it’s truly amazing! I will definitely keep this recipe, thank you <3

  26. It is very very nice I made them for my sister’s birthday.

  27. Mmmmmm!! I LOVE chocolate. I’ve had chocolate chip pancakes, but NOT chocolate pancakes!! I will definitely serve these pancakes with some bacon for breakfast AND dinner!!

  28. Could u use flour instead of self raising flour and then add backing powder

  29. Mine turned out flat 🙁
    I did not ovemix

  30. These recipe is almost just like mine! but they are still delicious! and sweet!

  31. These sound delicious!😋
    By the way Sherri, pancakes are supposed to be flat🤣
