Chocolate Pancakes Recipe

I am kicking myself for not making chocolate pancakes sooner, they would have been a perfect Valentines Day breakfast! I guess that will have to wait until next year for now, we will simply enjoy them as a weekend indulgence.

You will need:

  • 3 C of Bisquick Mix
  • 1/3 C sugar
  • 1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder (try Dark Chocolate to make them really chocolatey!)
  • 1 C milk
  • 2 t of vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • Confectioners sugar and fruit for garnish


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: Bisquick, sugar, and cocoa powder.
  • Add milk, vanilla, and the eggs, one at a time.
  • Stir together until just mixed. Don't over mix.
  • Preheat a griddle pan or frying pan on the stove over medium heat. When hot, pour a small amount of pancake mix onto the griddle. You can make whatever size you'd like!
  • When the tops of the pancakes start to bubble a bit, use a spatula to flip them. Cook for another 30-60 seconds on the other side until cooked through.
  • Serve covered with sifted confectioners sugar and fruit. I like strawberries and raspberries with these!

Serves 6.

I love this recipe because it is soooo simple and delicious but, they also freeze well. Anytime that I make pancakes, I whip up a double batch (my mother always says, cook once eat twice!). I freeze half to use on busy school mornings. Just pop them in the microwave for one minute and you have tasty, frugal breakfast for the entire family!

I am a huge fan of the taste of dark roast coffees with chocolate.  It is simply a match made in heaven.  For that reason I would recommend pairing chocolate pancakes with Folgers Black Silk Keurig K-cup coffee.  The smooth, rich flavors of Black Silk will compliment and amplify the delicious chocolate taste of these homemade pancakes!
