"Beautiful and delicious pancakes. Thanks for posting this. My husband and I got to escape for a weekend and had the use of our friends cabin. I made these for a romantic breakfast and it was stunning to look at and scrumptious tasting. I highly recommend this for any romantic occasion. I sprinkled with powdered sugar, topped with some whipped cream and a few sliced strawberries. "
"We loved these! The powdered sugar makes them look so nice, and the chocolate flavor is wonderful. I easily made these gluten free by subbing in my gf flour blend in. I served with raspberry syrup - lovely combo! Thanks for sharing. Veg*n Swap 36"
"These were delish! The perfect amount of chocolate for us. I would have given it five stars, but from the pictures, I was expecting a thicker pancake. Mine was very thin. I doubled checked everything and made a second batch, and still thin. Next time I'll increase the dry amounts. Definitely needs whipped cream!!"
"Delicious! Sure made my little men feel special. Served with diced mango/ pineapple/ kiwi/ mandarin oranges/ banana and topped with Cool Whip. Beverage was Yummy Orange Slushies from this site. MMMMMMMMM, what a combo! Would love to have used fresh strawberries but didn't have them, but will put them on my list and make these AGAIN AND AGAIN! Thanks for posting!"
"They taste really yummy but since they're so thin it's kind of hard to flip them. So make sure to make them small."
"My kids asked for these pancakes every morning, so I triple the recipe and freeze for breakfast and snacks during the week. I substitute whole wheat flour for AP flour, pureed dates for the sugar and yogurt for the butter. We spread with peanut butter, almond butter or Nutella and eat for snacks as well as breakfast. Awesome recipe!"
"These are pretty little pancakes. I made ours gluten free like Starrynews with just a bit of additional gluten free flour mix (brown rice flour, white rice flour, half the amount in tapioca starch plus a bit of guar gum) I also used carob powder in almost double the amount to be caffeine free. And since we have a lactose intolerance I used coconut milk and water for the milk, but I did use sweet butter (unsalted). I made a half batch but still used 1 large egg which worked well, brown sugar for the sugar, sea salt, plus the baking soda and powdered sugar for which I made my own in a spice mill/coffee grinder to be corn free. Served with sliced strawberries on top. I may make these again. Made for Veggie Swap 38 ~ September ~"
"I made these for my kids and their friends after a slumber party so I tripled the recipe. I only made one change and that was to use a 1:1 ratio of plain yogurt in place of the butter/margarine. I don't know if that was the reason or not, but I had no issues with batter thickness like so many others did. It ended up being like cake batter and got a little thicker as it sat. They were a definate hit. I served them with strawberry jam and white chocolate chips sprinkled on top."
"The batter does come out thin and the pancakes spread a lot, but they certainly do taste good. I put Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips in mine while they were cooking and topped them with whipped cream before I served them. They were delicious!
When my mom visited last month they were a HUGE hit with her. She doesn't like thick, dry pancakes so the thinner batter was just fine by her. She scarfed them down and told me I "have to make them every time" she visits!
This recipe makes a good amount of pancakes, and since it uses only one egg, can't be halved. However, the batter stores well in an airtight container in the refrigerator and tasted just as delicious the next day. (If you're brave enough, you can pour the batter into in a zip-top baggie, then snip the bottom when you're ready to cook more for easy pouring.)
I recommend trying this recipe for yourself because it's worth the effort. (Seriously, who needs boxed or bagged pancake mix?!)
I'm going to experiment with different toppings like Nutella, almonds, walnuts, etc to see which combination I like best. Enjoy!"
"Made these as a treat for my 5 year old..needless to say she was most impressed..."super yummy pancakes" in her words...thanks Sharon!"
"Perfection that is all that can be said :)"
"Nice! Not too sweet. My hubby and toddler gobbled them down."
"I appreciated this quick and easy way to get breakfast on the table quick. I served these with homemade strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream. Everyone loved them! Thanks Sharon!"
"So delicious and chocolatey (but not too much!) moist and fluffy. My family loved them. I added overripe, mashed bananas to mine and mmm heaven. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!"
"Served with strawberry sauce and whipped cream. Special treat for a special occasion - only gets 4 stars because the kids thought there was too much chocolate ?!!!?"
"These are very easy to make. My family ate these so fast I did not even get to try them. Always a sure sign of a good recipe in my house. Thank for the recipe."
"Delicious! Made these for my 3-yr-old son and 2-yr-old nephew this morning, and cut them into heart shapes for Valentines Day. These two picky eaters scarfed them down in no time! Thanks for posting. :)"
"These were awesome! Used unbleached all purpose flour, and my five year old thought I was Mom of the Year when I put a little bit of Hershey's syrup on the top, whipped cream and jimmies:) Thanks so much for a great recipe Sharon!!"
"I love these pancakes, they are not too sweet and not too bitter just the perfect blend. I made them exactly as directed. The kids gobbled them up for breakfast with powdered sugar then for snack later in the day with blackberryjam. Thanks for a great recipe"
"Ok, have to admit that I made a few changes but then they turned out great! 1) I love my regular pancake recipe so much that I was nervous to try a different method. This means that I used buttermilk and baking powder instead of regular milk and soda. They turned out wonderfully fluffy! 2) I tasted the batter before cooking it (of course!) and it was bitter. So I doubled the sugar and they tasted awesome! I felt guilty because it tasted like I was eating a brownie for breakfast! But man were they good!"
