Melt in your mouth, chocolate pancakes that are light and fluffy just like French Silk Pie.
Guessing by the current number of pancake posts I have, you can probably tell that I am a huge lover of pancakes.
They are just so easy to make and a great way to start out the weekend… with a big plate of hot pancakes. I love making pancakes on the weekend for my girls and now that my littlest has some teeth, she can enjoy the pancake-y goodness that I've been cooking up lately.
Especially when said pancakes are made of chocolate and smothered in real maple syrup. Another bonus of living in Michigan… real maple syrup sold on the street corner. Seriously.
I really do love living here in Michigan, even though in some of my posts it doesn't seem like I do… it's just that gosh darn snow that I hate. Maybe that's just a by-product of me growing up in Florida. Who knows? We won't be here forever though and I know that when we do move again I'll be complaining that I miss all the local wineries, breweries, and cute little things about this town. Oh well… Moving along.
These pancakes are based from French Silk Pie, which is usually made with raw eggs. But don't worry, these don't have raw eggs in them. They do however, taste just like french silk pie. Yummy!
