Recipe - Chocolate American Pancakes


I've got a great recipe for American style breakfast pancakes that I've used for the last five years. Sadly I can't credit the magazine the recipe is from as there is no mention on the cutout, but I can share it with you all.

Chocolate American Pancakes Recipe

Makes 8-9 pancakes (serves 4)

Ingredients 
125g plain flour
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125ml natural yogurt
2 tbsp milk
2 eggs
25g  butter, plus a little extra
1 tsp sunflower oil
75g chocolate chips (milk or dark)


  • Into a bowl sift the flour then add the sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Pour in the yogurt, milk and break in the eggs. Whisk together.
  • Melt 25g butter and add to the bowl together with the chocolate chips and stir.


  • Heat a little butter and sunflower oil in a frying pan or flat griddle pan, over a low/medium flame until hot.
  • Add a ladle/large spoonful of mixture to the pan, repeating with the remaining mixture. After about 2 minutes flip over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

I love serving these Chocolate American Pancakes with warm maple syrup accompanied with a glass of orange juice a fabulous weekend breakfast.

Tip - replace the chocolate chips with soft fruit such as raspberries, blueberries, chopped strawberries or I also like sultanas.

  3. I love the idea of using natural yogurt in the mix. The toppings for pancakes can be so sweet, it would be nice to have that sourness in the mix.

  4. Ooh yes, those pancakes look good. These sort of pancakes are often at the back of my mind, but they seldom come to fruition. Now you've added chocolate, I might just make some. Thanks for joining in with Breakfast Club.
