A Valentine's Day Breakfast Treat - Chocolate Griddle Cakes - Yummy!

I am a lover of a good pancake recipe and keeping the love coming for this Valentine's weekend, is a great recipe I came across on DashRecipes. When chocolate and love comes together, what else do you need? I hope you and the one you love can whip yourselves up this Valentine's Day Breakfast Treat - Chocolate Griddle Cakes. Yummy! Enjoy!

Chocolate Griddle Cakes


½ cup Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder

1¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

½ tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

2 whole large eggs

1 large egg yolk

¾ cup buttermilk

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla

Unsalted butter


1. Sift together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, then whisk in eggs, yolk, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla until combined well.

2. Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over moderately low heat and lightly coat with butter.

3. Working in batches of 2 or 3, pour ¼ cup batter per cake onto hot griddle; cook until bubbles appear on surface, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip cakes with a large spatula; cook until tops spring back when pressed gently, about 1 minute more.

4. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Add ½ tsp butter to griddle between batches.
