With this Chocolate Pancake Recipe you can make delicious pancakes quickly for breakfast or supper from your very own homemade mix.

For you convenience, I have included a delicious and easy. Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup recipe.

Chocolate Pancakes

  • 2 cups pancake mix (recipe below)
  • 1 1/4 cups tap water
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • extra butter for greasing pan
  • syrup for topping - your choice

Place mix in a mixing bowl.

Add water and stir until lumps are gone.

Add melted butter and stir until batter is smooth.

It takes about 1 minute.

Preheat* griddle or skillet and brush with butter.

Pour batter into pan or griddle making the size circles you prefer.

Cook until top is almost done and bottom is lightly browned.

Takes 3-4 minutes.

Turn and cook the other side.

Carefully, lift these from pan with spatula as they are very tender.

Serve hot with regular syrup or chocolate syrup.

Goes well with ice cream, strawberries, or bananas.

Makes 8 regular sized thin cakes.

For thicker ones, reduce water by 2-3 tablespoons.

*Pan for cooking should not be as hot as for making the buttermilk pancakes because chocolate tends to burn at a high temperature

If using electric skillet, preheat to 325F.

Pancake Mix Recipe

  • 3 cups sifted self-rising flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened powdered cocoa
  • 1/2 cups sugar

Sift all ingredients together 4-5 times to get sugar evenly incorporated.

Store in a container with a tight fitting lid to prevent moisture. I use an empty coffee tin. Makes 4 1/2 cups.

Note:  I make up several batches of mix at a time so our family can make it often.

Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup

  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Maple Flavoring

Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, and water in a saucepan and cook and stir on low heat until mixture comes to a boil and sugar has completely dissolved.

Remove from heat drop in butter and add flavoring.

Stir until butter has melted.

Serve warm or cold on pancakes and waffles.

Store leftover syrup in refrigerator.
