Double-Chocolate Devil's Food Pancakes

"Admittedly, this isn't something you'd serve often, but if you or a loved one is a chocoholic, this would be a make a decadent breakfast. Perfect for a "valentines day" breakfast in bed! Found this in an issue of "Redbook" lying around at work."

  1. What a treat!
  2. Ez to make excellent results use the hot coffee to melt butter
  3. Made a half batch of these for a school holiday breakfast treat this morning. Little Miss 6 rates 1000 stars, very simple to do & yummy!
  4. These were amazing! I used a gluten free flour mixture and they still turned out wonderfully. We did have to add a LOT more milk to thin it out, and they were still the thickest pancake I've ever eaten. This meant they took a while to cook, but so worth the wait. These will become our new tradition for Easter morning. Thanks!
  5. My family really enjoyed these. I too reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. I used milk chocolate chips and served these with syrup and fresh strawberries. I used a lower temperature to cook them so they would not burn. I think whipped cream as a topping would be wonderful. These even taste good cold. They were a real treat. Thanks for the recipe.


What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
