Mocha Chip Pancakes with Espresso Syrup

If there was ever a food I could eat thirty days in a row, it would have to be pancakes. Today I’m participating in a month-long Pancake Party. Four whole weeks of pancakes, can you imagine?

I’m contributing my dark and moody Mocha Chip Pancakes, with ground coffee, warm molten chocolate speckled throughout, and a generous drizzle of black espresso syrup.

These chocolate chip pancakes with coffee give breakfast a decadent charm.

Make sure to see my whole post over on Rachel Cooks today!

Mocha Chip Pancakes with Espresso Syrup

Ingredients:

For the Espresso Syrup:

  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 2 oz. (a double shot) hot espresso

For the Mocha Chip Pancakes:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup malted milk powder
  • 3 Tb. ground coffee (not instant)
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 Tb. melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Heat a griddle, or non-stick skillet, to medium-high.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and vanilla until frothy.
  4. Add the milk mixture to the dry mix and whisk until smooth. Last whisk in the melted butter.
  5. Allow the pancake batter to rest for 3-5 minutes before cooking, to thicken. It should be so thick that it barely pours.
  6. Once the griddle is hot, stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Make one pancake as a test-batch to ensure your heat in accurate. Use a 1/4 cup scoop to ladle the batter onto a buttered griddle. Spread into a circle. Cook for 1-3 minutes per side. Flip when small bubbles rise to the top of the batter. If the pancake turns dark too quickly, lower the heat. Butter and repeat.

    My gosh, if I could get my coffee fix and pancake fix together in one sitting, I’d be psyched! I’ve never tried pancakes like this before and they look so delicious! A month of pancakes sounds great to me – looking forward to seeing what else you ladies come up with!!

    I just saw these on Pinterest & I remember when Rachel asked me to do this – it feels sort of like just a month ago – and it was 14 months ago. Time flies! But your pancakes are timeless :)
