Julianne Eladawy, Staff Writer

The weekend is something everyone looks forward to, but a way to make it even better? Pancakes!

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups all-purpose | plain flour, (290 g | 10 oz
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar or sweetener, (60g | 2 oz)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups milk, (440 ml)
  • 1/4 cup butter, (60g | 2 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions :

  • Combine together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt in a large-sized bowl. Make a well in the center and add the milk, slightly cooled melted butter, vanilla, and egg.
  • Use a wire whisk to whisk the wet ingredients together first before slowly folding them into the dry ingredients. Mix together until smooth.
  • Add in the chocolate chips. The batter will be thick and creamy in consistency. If you find the batter too thick (if it doesn’t pour off the ladle or out of the measuring cup smoothly) add a couple of tablespoons of extra milk into the batter one at a time until reaching desired consistency).
  • Set the batter aside and allow it to rest while heating up your pan or griddle.
  • Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over low-medium heat and wipe over with a little butter to lightly grease the pan. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and spread out gently into a round shape with the back of your ladle or measuring cup.
  • When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve with honey, maple syrup, fruit, ice cream, or frozen yogurt, or enjoy plain!
