In which we make pick-me-up pikelets...

chocolate pikelets
So we were all feeling a bit 'meh' yesterday.  The Mr. had been away working for a few days and it was freezing cold and foggy.  I thought we were all in need of a pick-me-up.  So I suggested pikelets for breakfast.  Minty suggested we go one better and make chocolate pikelets.  I've never really had a chocolate pikelet or pancake for that matter but it sounded pretty awesome so we did a bit of experimenting and this is what we came up with.

chocolate pikelet pancake recipe

These would taste amazing with vanilla ice-cream or you can follow our lead and have them dusted with icing sugar and a generous mound of berries.  Or just eat them plain straight from the pan in their unadulterated fabulousness.


  1. HELLO! Am totally trying this. And glad Minty isn't my child as she wouldn't be helping me fight my chocolate addiction! ;) heh hehe

  2. Shall be stealing and trying this out. I think we'll have them as a dessert with berries AND icecream! :)

  3. I always have that problem with pikelets - as soon as one is cooked I'm eating it while cooking the next batch and so not nearly as many hit the plate as they should! Far too tasty hot and unadulterated...

  4. I make pikelets often, but never thought to do this. Must give it a go.

  5. Oooh they look so yummy! I never ever thought of chocolate pikelets before. Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. Lovely photo - almost as good as the pikelets!

  7. Love a good pikelet - quick, cheerful and filing !

    Beautiful blog Susan - great style :)

    Glad you cold join in the debate, sorry milk is at least Australian (got a bit coloqual there).

    P.S. nice bathrubs, mine have all become cow troughs.
