Chocolate Pancakes with Grandma’s Syrup

This recipe is from the Worldwide Ward Cookbook, submitted by Ilona Lundgreen. It is definitely a sweet, dessert-type breakfast — so be sure you’re in a sweet mood! I will make sure and hang onto this recipe for when my little ones have sleepovers, and send home all of their friends hopped up on sugar. Ha!

Chocolate Pancakes:

1 1/2 c. flour

3 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

6 Tbsp. sugar

6 Tbsp. baking cocoa

1 1/4 C. warmed milk

4 Tbsp. butter, melted

2 eggs, beaten

Mix and sift together dry ingredients. Add milk, butter, eggsand beat until smooth. Add extra milk if the batter is too thick. Cook as you do regular pancakes. Serve warm with Grandma’s Syrup.

Grandma’s Syrup:

2 C. sugar

1 8 oz. can evaporated milk

1 Tbsp. butter

Boil sugar and milk, stirring constantly until all sugar is dissolved. Cook over high heat until the mixture starts to boil. Do not leave unattended, as it comes to a boil quickly. Remove from heat and add butter. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir and enjoy!
