Valentine PancakesCourse: BreakfastCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
I found this recipe ages ago and have been making it for my kids for years. I usually make it for Valentine’s Day breakfast and also on Fat Tuesday for dinner. My kids love breakfast for dinner so it is fun to change it up. These are so good. I like to make the batter and then let it sit for at least 30 minutes on the counter or up to an hour in the refrigerator. I have doubled the recipe before so to have more to freeze and the kids eat them warm for dessert.
1 1/3 cups flour
1/3 cup Droste Dutch Process Cocoa
1/4 cup cornstarch
6 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups milk
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 lg eggs
- In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl.
- Whisk milk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl. Once combined whisk into dry ingredients. Whisk until just comes together. Do not over mix.
- Allow batter to rest for 30 minutes on the counter or up to an hour in the refrigerator.
- In a large nonstick skillet or griddle, heat and melt butter, ladle about 1/4 cup and cook until bubbling about 3 minutes on medium high heat. Flip over and cook and additional 3 minutes. Place pancakes in a warm oven or serve with melted butter and hot syrup.
