Decadent Chocolate Pancake Recipe With 2-Ingredient Chocolate Sauce Will Win Hearts

Chocolate pancakes drizzled with a simple hot chocolate sauce takes breakfast or brunch to a whole new level – especially on Valentine's Day. Heck, you could even serve this decadent cocoa pancake recipe for dessert (just add a dollop of homemade whipped cream).

The rich pancake batter is made with flour, buttermilk, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, eggs, butter, chocolate chips and a pinch of salt. The pancakes cook on a griddle until cooked through. Serve the hot pancakes with the simple two-ingredient chocolate sauce made with milk and chocolate chips. That's it. So rich and indulgent. 

No one will be disappointed seeing a stack of these homemade chocolate pancakes on the breakfast or brunch table. You could even make some extra and freeze for a quick breakfast later.
