Recipe: German Chocolate Pancakes
These German Chocolate Pancakes are what dreams are made of! Seriously. If you enjoy German chocolate, these light and fluffy treats will definitely become your new breakfast favorite. Packed with brown sugar, fresh pecans, and chopped chocolate bars – the flavor is simply mouthwatering. Warning: you won’t be able to resist a second helping. The breakfast delight is a great option for any special occasion, family brunch, or even if you’re just in the mood for something sweet. The incredibly rich German Chocolate Syrup that tops off this treat creates a perfectly decadent dish, and it’s similar to the icing that’s usually on a German Chocolate Cake. These pancakes beautifully combine two beloved mealtimes: breakfast and dessert! For an extra bit of excitement, garnish the cuisine with shredded coconut, scrumptious pecans, and chocolate curls. The chewy texture of the coconut flakes and the crunchiness of the pecans are simply irresistible.
To begin, whisk together your flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix your milk, eggs, chopped chocolate, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Next, slowly stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture until it is moistened. Make sure not to over mix the batter; it should be lumpy. This creates amazingly tender pancakes. Use about ¼ of a cup of batter to make each pancake, and pour it onto a hot and buttered griddle. Cook the pancakes for about 4 minutes until the edges begin to bubble; they should look dry and cooked. Of course, don’t forget to make the delectable German Chocolate Syrup. Bake the pecans and coconut flakes for about 6 minutes; they should be lightly toasted and fragrant. Next, simply cook the remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat while stirring constantly. Once removed from the heat, stir in the vanilla, coconut, and pecans. Pour the syrup over the German Chocolate Pancakes, and enjoy the chocolatey goodness!
