Chocolate Pancakes

It's the weekend before Valentine's Day and today I was sitting in a parking lot waiting for my mother to finish getting her hair done. While waiting, I notice that there were a lot of people coming out of one store carrying the same thing. No, it wasn't flowers or chocolate, it was Mylar balloons. Most of them were red and shaped like hearts. Some said Happy Valentine's Day and some said I Love You. From what I could see, there are going to be a lot of happy people in that particular town for Valentine's Day.

After my mother was finished with her hair appointment, we headed to Walmart. What a madhouse. It almost felt like Christmas. I don't know if it was because of Valentine's Day or the fact that the weather was finally nice out. The sun was shining and the temps made it above freezing.

Obviously, chocolate is a popular item to give at Valentine's Day, so today I am going to give you a different recipe, Chocolate Pancakes. If you are a chocolate lover like I am, you will love these.

Chocolate Pancakes

4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 c. milk
6 T. oil
3 c. flour
2 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
3/4 c. sugar
2 T. cocoa powder

Mix all ingredients. Batter will be lumpy. Stirring with a wire whisk helps mix it better. Pour batter onto a hot griddle and cook as you would any pancake. Top with warm chocolate sauce, whipped cream, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Oh yum, who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast? The pancakes look fantastic and as for your luscious sauce, pour it on. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your pancakes up.
