I am one of those people who are very traditional and orthodox when it comes to their Chocolates. I might be outgoing in every other aspect of life,but not my chocolates. While I still swear by my childhood favorite of Dairy Milk Chocolate,my adult taste buds are more tuned towards the darker varieties. I do not mix or tend to dilute, I should say, my chocolate. So no Mint Chocolate or Rhubarb Chocolate or any such popular concoctions work for me. But what I love is how I can integrate Chocolate to things that I love. I love PANCAKES as you know and Double Chocolate Chip Pancakes are a weakness of mine.

Double Chocolate?! Whats that you might think? The name double Chocolate means that it uses two different sources of Chocolate: Cocoa Powder and Chocolate Chips. I amped it a notch further. How about thick and decadent Gancahe to top it off. Chocolate Overload.

Who doesn't need a Chocolate overload every now and then. I  never seem to mind it. Neither do my husband and daughter. So after a hectic week and an even hectic Friday and Saturday, I decided to reward us, by having some Chocolate Pancakes for Breakfast. Added some orange wedges on the side, , to cut the sweetness. Some strong black coffee for Mommy and daddy and Milk Shake for the toddler. Sunday Breakfast was taken care of.

Yes, you guessed it right, I did not have a Chocolate Pan Cake Mix. Do they even have one? Not that I know of. So a quick browsing on my smart phone and I started to round up the ingredients from the Pantry. I could mix in some Nutella as well, I thought. But decided not to go with it.


Recipe Courtesy: BAKERELLA's Double Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Basic Pancake Recipe of mine: Pancakes for Sunday Breakfast

All purpose flour: 1 1/3 cup
Vanilla Extract: 1 tsp
Sugar: 1/4 cup
Egg: 1
Butter: 3 tbsp(melted)
Chocolate Chips(Mini):
Baking Powder: 2 tsp
Cocoa Powder:
Milk: 1 1/4 cup
Non Stick Cooking Spray

Chocolate Sauce: 
Heavy Cream: 3/4 cup
Chocolate Morsels: 1 cup
Butter: 1 tbsp


Whisk the dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredients slowly. The batter will be lumpy. Do not over mix. Add in the chocolate chips or morsels.

Heat a non stick pan or griddle and grease it with non stick cooking spray.

Use a ladle or a measuring cup(1/4 cup) to ladle out the batter so that all the pancakes are similar in size.

When bubbles start to appear on the surface, its time to flip. Continue cooking for a couple of minutes and then take off heat.

For the chocolate sauce, heat the cream and butter together,just before they boil. Turn off heat and transfer the warm mixture over the chocolate chips. Whisk it together so that the warm cream and butter melt the chocolate.Let it congeal to a thick sauce before you serve it. You could also make it a day in advance.

Serve the pancakes warm with the chocolate sauce.

Bon Appetit !!!
