The recipe I posted for Quick and Easy Pumpkin Pie Spice Pancakes is so popular; I figured I should get a couple more of our favorite pancakes recipes posted. Here are Quick and Easy Chocolate Pancakes that my kids love!
Just a little bit of cocoa and the kids are smiling big time! It is almost like having dessert for breakfast. Their favorite way of eating these delicious pancakes is sprinkled with powdered sugar with a side of fresh raspberries or strawberries, this fresh strawberry puree that is pictured, and topped with a little (or a lot of) whipped cream.
Quick and Easy Chocolate Pancakes
1 1/2 cups of Krusteaz Pancake Mix
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 tablespoon Sugar
1 1/4 cups Water
Mix ingredients together.
Warm a skillet over medium to medium low heat.
Pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto warmed skillet.
Flip over when the edges start to firm and bubbles appear on top.
Continue cooking about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes on second side.
Serve with fruit, whipped cream and/or powdered sugar.
If you want to make them from scratch…
1 1/2 cups Milk
1 tablespoon Canola Oil
3 tablespoons Sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix together liquids. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to liquids and stir just until combined.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a warm skillet and cook 1-2 minutes per side until done.
Both recipes are delicious. I usually use the first recipe, especially on school mornings when we are trying to get out of here in a hurry.
