Chocolate Pancakes

Chocolate Pancakes

I was suddenly in the mood for an English breakfast today, having watched Black Beauty with my family yesterday. The story is just too inspiring and the stallion too black and graceful !! Just then I got a brilliant idea-pancakes!! I like the sweet ones more than savory ones and I love chocolate. So, this chocolaty English breakfast was just what I needed. Topped with chocolate syrup and a pat of butter, this is perfect for kids too. Hope you like it! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!)

Pancake Squares

Pancake Squares

Generally when we hear pancake we visualize a stack of golden brown, fluffy discs of delicious fried batter topped with maple syrup or a pat of butter. However, I like creative cooking. So, I improvise. I change small things to create somethng different. This dish is one of them. I thought instead of making the traditional circular pancakes why not make square-shaped ones? A bit of cheese, lettuce and corinder enhanced the flavour. So hope you like it! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!)
