    1. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla in another bowl; mix in the melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry; mix just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
    2. Heat a lightly greased pan over medium-high heat. For each pancake, pour 1/2 ladle of pancake batter into the pan and cook until bubbles appear in the centre of the pancake, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook an additional minute on the opposite side.

    Delicious! Also not sure what the other reviewer was complaining about - the mixture's consistency was fine, I simply had to fry each pancake on 1 side for 2 mins, and the other side for 1 min. I didn't add anything else, but, as I had maple syrup for the topping, I omitted the sugar. I added some raspberries on the side, what a lovely contrast in flavours  -  25 Jun 2017


    I don't know why previous commenters are saying that this batter is thin and runny. Other than adding a tbsp of baking powder (as I prefer fluffy pancakes) and an extra tbsp of sugar since I didn't have chocolate chips on hand, I followed the recipe to the letter and the batter was the perfect thickness for scooping and pouring. I lowered the heat on my frying pan to medium low and these pancakes cooked up fluffy and perfect very quickly (2-3 minutes on the first side; 1 minute after flipping). My kids loved them, comparing them to having chocolate cake for breakfast. I gave them 4 stars only because I had to add the baking powder. I will definitely make these again.  -  03 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Dense, thin and took forever to cook. Also, they did not taste chocolately at all.  -  11 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
