Chocolate Pancakes and other breakfast ideas

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

The past few days I have been focusing on breakfast ideas for Christmas morning.  Today, I want to share a recipe for chocolate pancakes.  I found it years ago on a site called Everything and Nothing. She got the recipe from a Better Homes and Gardens magazine. 

For me, chocolate pancakes are a special treat saved for a special time of year.  I like to serve them with caramel banana topping or warmed cherry pie filling. Then topped them off with some whipped cream.  My favorites way to have these is with the cherry pie filling.

Also, I found a cute way to make regular pancakes fun for Christmas.  I found this image at the Taste of Home website.  Take some banana slices, cherry pie filling, a couple chocolate chips along with some whipped cream and you’ve got a cute Santa Pancake.

Today, I also am sharing my favorite recipe that fall under the pancake, waffle, and french toast category.  The list is a little long but they are all fabulous.  If you didn’t know I LOVE breakfast.

Servings 8 servings
Calories 104 kcal


  • 1 ⅔ cups flour
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp cooking oil


  • In a large bowl combine flour and other dry ingredients.(I like to put the cocoa through a sieve to get rid of any lumps)
  • In a second bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
  • Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until slightly lumpy.
  • Heat a lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet over medium heat until a few drops of water dance across surface.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Cook until lightly browned; turn when tops are bubbly and edges are slightly dry (about 2 to 3 minutes per side). Makes 16 pancakes.
