Chocolate Pancakes

chocpancake

Made these delicious pancakes for breakfast today. I was all out on sugar, so compensated with sweet cocoa powder (by Cadury's) and brown sugar, and it was fabulous!
I put in all the powders together in a bowl, then added a cup of milk and whisked it a bit. Broke an egg into the bowl and whisked it again. Added melted butter and then started to make the pancakes. Simple!
I will be posting its pictures soon as I have finally bought a DSLR camera.. photographs undergoing post-production processing now.. oh yeah! gonna learn all the details about photography too!

Suggestions (for you) by substituting the all purpose flour for a whole grain flour. Whole wheat flour is an obvious substitute. Worried about compromising flavor and texture? Don't be! There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter. Hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthier alternatives. So explore...discover...and ENJOY!
