Chocolate Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 T. hot cocoa powder
  • 2 T. melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. milk

Thoroughly combine all of the dry ingredients (flour through cocoa powder). Thoroughly combine all of the wet ingredients (butter thought milk). Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Do not over beat!

Heat a griddle; lightly oil the surface and wipe up the excess oil with a paper towel. Ladle the batter onto the griddle and cook the pancakes until they are bubbly on top and the edges are bubbly and no longer shiny. Flip the pancakes and cook them for another minute.

A romantic serving suggestion: Top a stack of pancakes with thinly sliced strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream. If you want to go all out, grate a little nutmeg and dark chocolate over them before presenting them to your love!
