One of the great things about starting my own  recipe blog has been finding new recipe blogs to explore. One of my new favorite recipe blogs is Pixel Baking. The recipes are fantastic and the pictures make you gain twenty pounds just by looking at them. The blog isn’t small batch but it is definitely worth a looking at.

The chocolate pancakes are the first recipe I attempted to adapt from Pixel Baking’s site. The pancakes are thick, fluffy and full of chocolate flavor, almost like cake. I served these pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup but these would be good with strawberries, pineapple, and banana or just a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

Chocolate Pancakes

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 TBS sugar
2 1/2 TBS cocoa powder
2 TBS brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 TBS canola oil
1/2 cup milk
3/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat the griddle or frying pan over medium heat; about 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda , and salt; mix well. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Drop by ¼ cupfuls onto a heated pan coated with cooking spray. Cook until the bottom is golden, 2-4 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden. This recipe makes three, 2 pancake servings.
