chocolate pancakes w/strawberries and cream |Suzanne pancakes with chocolate chips, strawberries and whip cream are like heaven for me. I’m the kind of girl who can eat this for any meal especially since I’m a lover of all things chocolate. Well, maybe not all things chocolate because chocolate cover bugs don’t tempt me at all but if I had to eat them getting them down with chocolate would definitely help. I made these pancakes especially for the chocolate party that I am part of each month. We get to make a chocolate recipe of our chosing with a different secret ingredient each month, for May it was strawberries. In my opinion strawberries go perfectly with chocolate because strawberries are not super sweet,  they  lend  the  wonderful berry flavor to the chocolate and it makes a wonderful marriage that I can’t resist. I love to make chocolate cake with strawberry filling and chocolate dipped strawberries on top, it never ceases to wow everyone. I hope you give these double chocolate pancakes a try and load them up with lots of strawberries and cream, you deserve a little bit of heaven today.Chocolate pancakes with strawberries and cream |Suzanne

Double Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream

1 pint of fresh strawberries
1 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 pastry wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 T. of flax meal
pinch of salt
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk (if you want thinner pancakes you may add a little more buttermilk)
2 T. melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Step 1: Wash and hull about a pint of strawberries, then slice. Put in to a small bowl and toss with about 1 tablespoon of sugar, set aside for later.
Step 2: In a medium large mixing bowl sift together the flours, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Whisk together flax meal with the flour mixture.
Step 3: In a smaller mixing bowl whisk the egg and add the melted butter to the egg. Stir in the buttermilk and sugar.
Step 4: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient and whisk until most of the big lumps are out. The batter will be thick and slightly lumpy.
Step 5: Heat a large griddle pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray or melt butter on top. Pour batter onto hot skillet into the size of pancakes you prefer, then add a few chocolate chips on top of each pancake. Watch carefully and when the sides begin to tighten up with a large spatula check the underside by lightly lifting one side up to check for a light brown color. About 2-3 minutes then flip over carefully and cook the remainder of the pancake for another 2-3 minutes until done.
Serve: with maple syrup, strawberries,or whatever type of sweet thing you enjoy on a pancake, feed four people.

26 Erin @ Texanerin Baking May 11, 2013 at 9:24 am

I’m loving that you used some whole wheat pastry flour! Woohoo!

This look absolutely incredible. I’ve never thought of using cream with pancakes but now I want to try! It goes so well with the strawberries.

27 Lora @cakeduchess May 11, 2013 at 8:36 pm

I love baking with whole wheat pastry flour. it adds such a nice texture to so many recipes. This would be nice to have for my mom tomorrow morning;)

28 Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic May 19, 2013 at 3:22 pm

I agree that chocolate and strawberry go together so well! This looks incredible. Can’t go wrong with double chocolate 🙂

Sorry I meant Pancakes, I got my comment mixed around from your other entry onto this month’s chocolate party. These pancakes are great, I’ve never made chocolate ones before.
