Mocha Pancakes With Mocha Syrup

It’s a very simpe process. Start off by preparing the pancake batter. Mix together all the wet ingredients (milk, egg and butter) in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients (flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, espresso powder, baking powder and baking soda). Dump the dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined. Don’t over-mix and don’t worry if there are some lumps. Pour this mixture (1/4 cup at a time) on a hot griddle. Toss some chocolate chips. Then, flip over the pancake and cook the other side for about a minute. Serve with mocha syrup and toss additional chocolate chips, if you like.

Here are some TIPS for making PERFECT mocha pancakes with mocha syrup:
Don’t over-mix the pancake batter or else you will end up with very tough pancakes.
Don’t replace espresso powder with regular coffee granules. Espresso powder has a very fine texture and dissolves completely in liquid. You can find espresso powder in the tea/coffee aisle at most grocery stores.

Make sure your griddle is hot before you pour the pancake batter. It will cook evenly and quickly.

Don’t skip the mocha syrup. That’s what truly takes these pancakes worth it!
You must use both, baking powder and baking soda. Don’t skip one or the other!
Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for 24 hours but seriously, they taste best when served fresh and I don’t recommend storing them for later.
