#FoodieExtravaganza: Churro Pancakes

It’s time for #FoodieExtravaganza again! The theme for September is pancakes and our host is Caroline of Caroline’s Cooking.

Pancakes are such a classic breakfast staple that it really stumped me as to what kind of pancakes I should make. Blueberry pancakes and chocolate chip pancakes are super common and I already had varieties of each on my blog, so I knew I needed to find something else.

And then I found churro pancakes and was immediately intrigued. Cinnamon sugar and chocolate on pancakes? It sounded like a delightful combination of cinnamon sugar french toast and pancakes mixed together with a drizzle of chocolate and really, how can you go wrong with that?

    • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
    • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
    • ⅛ cup sugar
    • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
    • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
    • ½ tsp baking soda
    • 1 egg + 1 egg white
    • 1 ½ cups milk
    • 2 tbsp melted butter
    • ½ cup sugar
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • softened butter
    • 6 oz. chocolate chips
    • ½ cup heavy cream
    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • ½ tsp cayenne

1. In a large bowl whisk together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and egg white, milk, and melted butter.
3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes.
4. In a small bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon topping, then pour onto a small plate.
5.In a small saucepan, add the chocolate chips and heat over low, stirring until melted. Then stir in the heavy cream, butter, cinnamon and cayenne and stir until smooth and combined. Remove from the heat and set aside.
6. Heat a griddle or grill plate over medium-high heat. Add butter or cooking spray and once hot, use a ⅓ cup measuring cup to pour the batter onto the griddler. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles form around the edges and the batter looks dry. Flip over and cook 2 minutes more.
7. Lightly butter each side of the pancake and then dredge through the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat cooking and dredging pancakes until batter is gone. Divide pancakes onto plates and drizzle the chocolate sauce on top. 

Tom wasn’t sure what to make of these pancakes at first but ended up finding them delicious as did I! You can really never go wrong with a cinnamon sugar and chocolate combination!
