Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes

Pancakes are a staple at my house each week. I have a certain daughter who will not eat much of anything. She saves up all her tummy space for pancake day when this 40 pound waif out-eats her 12 and 14 year old brothers. I think her record is 8. EIGHT!! And I do not make little silver dollar sized pancakes. I make thick fluffy man sized (or 40 pound waif sized) pancakes. The kids love them with chocolate chips, or with lemon zest and dried blueberries. But my favorite way to eat them is with chocolate and raspberries!

To make them, use this recipe of our favorite pancakes that keep you full for hours.

Place a 1/3 cup batter on a hot, buttered griddle. Quickly sprinkle on a few fresh or frozen raspberries and a touch of chocolate chips. These pancakes are very thick and are best cooked on a lower setting so they get done all the way through. Flip when the top is bubbly and cook until the batter is set.

They don't require much more, but I usually drizzle on a bit of pure maple syrup. So, are you a purist when it comes to pancakes? Or do you like to fancy them up? What is your favorite thing to add?
Do you find this "Pinteresting"? Is it likeable? Does it leave you Twitterpated? Please consider following My Lamp is Full on Pinterest, Facebook, or Twitter.

  1. I love whole wheat pancakes. I like the buttermilk taste too. I do not put any butter or fat of any kind in mine. They are so light and fluffy. Sometimes I add some oatmeal and cinnamon. I also have sliced banana on top with the syrup.

  8. This sounds like the perfect combination for my daughter. She loves raspberries. We also like to make our pancakes (or waffles) with a cup of cheese stirred in.
