Chocolate Pancakes Recipe

We made the most wonderful, yummy chocolate pancakes on Saturday.  It started the way most of my recipes do.  I asked the kids if they wanted pancakes.  Then, I asked if they wanted cinnamon pancakes.  Then of course, they said, "With Chocolate Chips!!!".  I then had to inform them that we did not have any chocolate chips in the house.  So, as my mind often does, it wandered.  Hmmmm. . . I do have cocoa powder.  I'll make chocolate pancakes!!!  So, I came up with a recipe.  Here it is!

Chocolate Pancakes

2 Cups All-purpose flour--(I ran out of whole wheat flour, people!)
2 heaping Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients together.  Mix wet ingredients together.  Combine wet and dry ingredients until just mixed.  Do NOT overmix.  I usually let my mix sit for 5 - 10 minutes before cooking.  Cook on medium-hot griddle.  You can tell the griddle is ready when water "dances" on the surface.  I usually take a stick of butter and grease the pan.  I wipe off the excess with a paper towel.  Use a ladle to pour batter onto griddle.  When bubbles are "set" on the top, it's time to flip.  I ate mine with a strawberry topping that I made like a strawberry shortcake topping, with very little sugar added of course!  And the kids ate them with a little Hershey's syrup on top.  They went all chocolate.   My husband even ate one when he got home and liked them.  And he's kind of picky sometimes. 

and just for the fun of it, here's what happens when my four year old gets hold of the camera!
Look Up!
Look Down!

Everyone have a wonderful Monday!!! 
I'll be leaving for vacation in 3 days!
