Do you ever have days where words come into your mind and you are able to articulate everything that you want to say? This happens to me a lot. Sometimes the words come faster than I am able to think them and I end up saying really stupid stuff. Does this happen to you?
Today isn’t one of those days…… I keep expecting the words to come and they don’t. In fact I am tempted to write, “Chocolate Pancakes-make them, eat them, love them. The End.” I could very easily leave it at that.
I feel that this would be unjust towards these pancakes and towards my readers though. You have probably come here expecting a long-worded explanation of these beauties and perhaps why I made them. These pancakes deserve some introduction.
Well, these pancakes reflect the mood of the dark and rainy winter days we are having which are the opposite of what I am used to this time of year. They are dark and somewhat mysterious. However, they are also delicious. As usual, I couldn’t help myself from going a little overboard with the toppings. Aren’t chocolate pancakes enough on their own?
No, I had to go and add a rich ganache, a sprinkle of raspberries (out of my last container of raspberries from last summer I might add), and a dusting of powdered sugar. Talk about a chocolate heart attack. You have to admit that this would be a pretty satisfying way to go. Would it not?
