A new panaderia opened up close to the plant (deceptively calling itself a bakery) and I stopped in at lunch today thinking I’d get a cupcake or something and ended up with this apple-pecan croissant/strudel thing that was still warm from the oven.

Experiment 644(a): Chocolate Pancakes.
The biscuits I made on Thanksgiving left me with most of a quart of buttermilk, so over the last two weekends I’ve made various flavor pancakes in order to use it up. Last weekend was banana-almond pancakes, which I’ve made before, but this morning I looked in the pantry and decided to experiment with making the easiest chocolate pancakes ever. Note: they’re only mildly chocolatey—it struck a nice balance between being a chocolate thing and a pancake.
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup hot chocolate mix (I used Penzey’s, which is cocoa, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Not sure what using Swiss Miss or Carnation will get you)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1 cup buttermilk (to be honest I have no idea how much buttermilk to use. I just poured it in until the batter was thin enough)
Mix the flour and hot chocolate mix until uniform. Add the egg, butter and buttermilk—stir until it just comes together (lumps are okay). Cook as you would any other pancake. Serve with whipped cream.
Five ingredients. Of course, if you don’t have self-rising flour or hot chocolate mix or buttermilk, then those three ingredients become nine ingredients (self-rising flour being all purpose flour + baking powder + salt, and buttermilk being milk + acid (lemon juice, vinegar))
Anyway, tasty. If you have the hot chocolate mix, it’s exactly as easy as normal pancakes, since it gets substituted for the sugar you’d normally add.
