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 Mocha Chip Pancakes with Espresso Syrup with coffee give breakfast a decadent charm.

Mocha Chip Pancakes + Espresso Syrup
Yield: 8-10 pancakes
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
For the Espresso Syrup:
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 2 ounces (a double shot) hot espresso
For the Mocha Chip Pancakes:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup malted milk powder
- 3 tablespoons ground coffee (not instant)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Heat a griddle, or non-stick skillet, to medium-high.
- In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
- In a smaller bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and vanilla until frothy.
- Add the milk mixture to the dry mix and whisk until smooth. Last whisk in the melted butter.
- Allow the pancake batter to rest for 3-5 minutes before cooking, to thicken. It should be so thick that it barely pours.
- Once the griddle is hot, stir in the chocolate chips.
- 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.
