This past weekend I made Joy the Baker's Smashed Raspberry Chocolate Chunk Pancakes. And no, they didn't look like this....
Mine looked like this...
I did a few things differently than the original recipe, not because I'm a kitchen-genius, but because it was what I already had and I didn't want to spend more money at the grocery store than I had to. I actually love being creative and thrifty with ingredients when I can. I kind of make it a game.
These pancakes tasted really good, but they were flatter than I like my pancakes. Perhaps because I didn't use the ingredients Joy recommended. I still think nothing can beat this pancake recipe. This one's pretty good as well.
Smashed Raspberry Chocolate Chunk Pancakes
Joy the Baker
1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of ground cinnamon <--I didn't add this because I didn't have any
1 cup buttermilk <-- I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled <-- I used canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract <-- I omitted this because I didn't have it and the milk was vanilla flavored
1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks <-- I used Guittard chips
Maple Syrup and powdered sugar, for garnish
Nonstick spray for the pan
