A Double-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Pancake Recipe That Is Basically Like Eating Dessert For Breakfast

Jack Johnson was onto something when he was just wanting to make "banana pancakes; pretend like it's the weekend now." Yet if you're really wanting it to feel like the weekend, those banana pancakes better be stuffed with hella chocolate. Trust me, you'll never want to whip up a plain old chocolate chip pancake recipe again after eating these. That's because these aren't just regular chocolate chip pancakes (although you can never go wrong with a classic). These are pancakes stuffed with deliciously sweet chocolate chips AND hot fudge. It's kind of like a hot fudge sandwich, actually. Serve them with bananas, powdered sugar, and more chocolate (duh), and you've got a breakfast that could just as easily be eaten for dessert.

So give your regular old bowl of cereal a break this weekend, and instead, get ready to indulge. One of the best things about pancakes is that they are so incredibly easy to make — seriously, nobody can mess these up. Better yet? You can customize these to taste however you want. Craving some more chocolate? Go ahead and be generous with the chocolate chips. Not feeling bananas? Swap them out for strawberries instead. Breakfast has never tasted sweeter.

Ingredients:

For pancakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted buter, melted
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge, room temperature

For toppings:

  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Extra chocolate
  • Banana

Supplies:

  • Small skillet
  • Spatula
  • Ladle
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Serving plate

Directions:

1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and sugar. Stir, and then add in vanilla, egg, milk, butter, and banana. Mix all ingredients until well combined.

2. Place skillet over low-medium heat. Using a ladle, pour mixture into the skillet, smoothing it out with the bottom of the ladle to create a perfect circle. Immediately add in a handful of chocolate chips, and two tablespoons of hot fudge to the center of the pancake. Top with another ladle of pancake batter to cover the chocolate. Let the pancake bake for five to eight minutes, or until it's bubbling on top.

3. Flip the pancake, and heat for roughly three to five minutes.

4. Serve immediately with butter, powdered sugar, chocolate, and banana. Enjoy!
