Chocolate Pancake Recipe

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

If you are a Chocoholic as I am, you will keep this easy made mix on hand to whip up often.

For your convenience, I have included a delicious and easy syrup recipe; Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup Recipe below.

Chocolate Pancake Recipe

  • 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 an electric skillet, preheat it to 325F.

Chocolate 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: Make up several batches of the mix at a time so your family can make and enjoy Choclate Pancakes often without having to make the mix every time.

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.

Note: These delicious, moist Chocolate pancakes can be served as a dessert if desired.

For variations of the recipe stack and fill two pancakes with one your favorite frosting such as Cream Cheese Frosting or even some Lemon Curd.

Smooth frosting and fillings on top and it can be made thin enough to drizzle down the sides of pancakes.

They can be served hot or cold.

These pancakes are also delicious served and topped with vanilla, strawberry, chocolate or any other of your favorite flavor of ice cream.

They are scrumptious served topped or served as a side with fruits such as strawberries and bananas.

A simple topping of Homemade Whipped Cream makes an awesome dessert.

Be creative and enjoy a variety of pancakes.
