Now that my 12 Days of Christmas Gifts are over, I feels strange to post food again.

Try this variation the next time you make pancakes. This is a perfect dish for a holiday brunch or a great breakfast in bed surprise. Hubster & Pumpkin both loved these.

Cherry Chocolate Almond Pancakes

Cherry Chocolate Almond Pancakes

1 c. flour, 2 Tbsp. baking powder, 1 tsp fresh ground sea salt, 1 egg, 1 c. milk, 2 Tbs. vegetable oil, 1 Tbs. almond extract, 1/4 c. grated white chocolate, 1/4 c. chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips, 1/3 c. dried tart cherries

Set aside chocolate chips and cherries. Mix together all dry ingredients, add wet ingredients and stir until batter is smooth. Stir in grated white chocolate. Place griddle on medium heat and lightly oil. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 c. of batter on hot griddle, evenly sprinkle cherries and chocolate chips. Flip pancakes when small bubbles appear. Cook on other side until golden brown, quickly remove from heat. Enjoy!

If you wish, drizzle with real maple syrup or serve them à la mode. Serve with sausage links and a cup of English tea.
