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? Chocolate Pancakes (2)

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. Chocolate Pancakes (3)

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.  Chocolate Pancakes (5) You have to admit that this would be a pretty satisfying way to go. Would it not? Chocolate Pancakes (4)

Chocolate Pancakes with Honey Sweetened Cocoa Ganache

Ingredients

    Chocolate Pancakes:
  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose or whole wheat flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter melted
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup plain non-fat or greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Honey Sweetened Ganache:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup organic honey
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Raspberries
  • Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  1. Start by sifting the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl; set aside. Use a whisk to beat eggs and melted butter together in separate bowl. Add milk, yogurt, and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk together until the batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and grease lightly or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Pour large spoonfuls of batter into circles on skillet and cook on each side for about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine ingredients for ganache and stir constantly over low heat just until it is dark and thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over hot pancakes. Serve immediately topped with raspberries and powdered sugar if desired.
