I like having pancakes for breakfast on Saturdays. This morning I thought perhaps I would make my usual chocolate chip recipe, but I was in the mood for more chocolate. More chocolate at breakfast is always better. And, according to the Nutella ads, it’s healthy. Plus, I had some strawberries left in the fridge to use up before they went bad. Chocolate and strawberries go together like peanut butter and jelly, so I decided that something with both strawberries and chocolate would hit the spot.
After scouring the internet and a couple cookbooks for a recipe, I couldn’t find one that had chocolate pancakes with strawberries in the batter, so I decided to pick a plain chocolate pancake recipe and just add in sliced strawberries. After a quick google search, I found this one. I didn’t want to add too many strawberries to the batter, or else it wouldn’t cook properly, so I used the rest to make a quick strawberry syrup to use on top instead of maple syrup. This was a very tasty idea, and I have some left over to put on other things.
