S'mores just shout Summer! So why not get a head start and make this variation on a theme-- S'mores Pancakes -- for your weekend brunch. Original recipe adapted from Pastry Affair (a great blog you must check out the other recipes) I've tried other recipes for S'mores Pancakes, but I always come back to this one.. especially for the Marshmallow Syrup. No time to make syrup? Just top the pancakes with some Marshmallow Fluff!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg, beaten
3 ounces dark chocolate, chopped or 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In large bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, beaten egg, and chopped chocolate or chocolate chips, mixing until incorporated.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto heated griddle and cook each side until lightly browned.
1 cup (about 7 ounces) marshmallow fluff
2 tablespoons warm water
In medium bowl, stir together marshmallow fluff and water until smooth. If syrup is too thick, thin with more water. If desired, warm in microwave for 10-20 seconds (marshmallows will expand, so be prepared for this).
Drizzle syrup on pancakes and serve immediately.
