Mocha Chip Pancakes + Espresso Syrup

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
These Mocha Chip Pancakes with Espresso Syrup with coffee give breakfast a decadent charm.
Servings: 10 pancakes


For the Espresso Syrup:

  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 2 ounces hot espresso a double shot

For the Mocha Chip Pancakes:


  • 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.
