Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Peanut Butter sauce
I don't even need an explanation for this one. Chocolate AND pancakes??? What more could you ask for?
For the pancakes:
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup all purpose flour2/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp melted butter
1. Combine the cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
2. Whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly add in the dry ingredients until JUST COMBINED. Don't overmix unless you want chewy, tough pancakes.
3. Cook on a medium-high griddle or pan with 1 tsp of oil or butter. About 1 minutes on each side.
For the sauce:
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (or whatever kind of chocolate you have)
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp butter
Heat ingredients over low in a saucepan until melted and smooth. Lick the spoon, and then apply to pancakes. : )
