breakfast can be this good: cinnamon chocolate pancakes

I love weekend mornings. They can be leisurely and relaxing and everything just seems better with a second cup of strong coffee. A short stack of pancakes also keeps that smile on your face just a bit longer too. A fluffy & almost ethereal short stack of spicy chocolate pancakes? Well, I think you’ve got the makings for a perfect day!

Don’t worry, these aren’t sweet pancakes, so feel free to add liberal amounts of maple syrup to your pancakes! A touch of sweetened whipped cream certainly wouldn’t be out of line, either.

    Yum! I love chocolate pancakes and that this recipe isn’t too sweet! I don’t like maple syrup though, I love King’s Golden on my pancakes. Mmmm….

    They weren’t bad, they came out a little tough on the outside and a little too gummy on the inside but the could easily be an error on my part. I might try thinning the batter next time as it was really really thick. They looked really pretty though.

    …and they are great with a berry sauce. 1 cup mixed frozen berries, 1 tablespoon of any sort of jam, a splash of wine in a skillet until you have sauce.

    thanks nosheteria! lazy sundays are the best.

    rachel, i’ve never had golden syrup as a condiment only as an ingredient in some baked goods. interesting!

    yup, joe, a totally great weekend breakfast treat.

    mmmm, i think a berry syrup would be delicious, barista. too bad yours didn’t turn out as nicely as mine! i’ll definitely be making these again!

    claire, this is a great little twist on breakfast!

    It’s alright though I seem to have rather mixed luck with baked goods.
