Pancake Challenge: Day 8

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I have been informed under no uncertain terms:
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes
are best enjoyed with a glass of milk.
Apparently powdered sugar is optional - not necessary

Needed to come back strong.

2 Tips:

You can make anything
chocolatey by replacing
1/4 to 1/8 of the flour
with cocoa powder

But - under no circumstances
can you forget the sugar
(or some sweetener) and
the vanilla - or it'll just taste
oddly dirty (dare I say...

Other cooking with chocolate trivial note.  Cocoa powder/chocolate can work without the sugar+vanilla boost in savory applications - but usually some sweet(ish) element is essential for the success - from a vegetable, fatty or fruit source, and some other aromatic flavor(s) that highlights a different aspect of chocolate needs to be there if you are going to go to the trouble of putting it in.
