Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel Syrup


Chocolate Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk or buttermilk substitute
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Caramel Syrup

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Combine buttermilk, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, and cocoa powder in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • Add in the flour and chocolate chips and stir until well combined.
  • Heat a non-stick griddle to medium-high heat. Cook your pancakes on the griddle by scooping 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle. Flip the pancake over when bubbles appear. The pancakes are done when they are lightly browned on both sides and cooked through.
  • Make the caramel sauce by combining the buttermilk, sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a large soup pot.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to low Stir constantly and simmer for about 8 minutes, until it turns a nice caramel color.
  • Remove from heat and add the baking soda and vanilla. It'll foam like crazy which is why you are using such a large pot. Serve hot over freshly made pancakes.
