Chocolate and Raspberry Buckwheat Pancakes

Chocolate and Raspberry Buckwheat Pancakes

In our house Sunday morning is pancake time. We are creatures of habit and we normally always have the same flavour every Sunday. As pancake day is on the way I decided to ask my little family if they fancied a change. We have recently been trying recipes with buckwheat flour so I thought I’d ask them if they fancied these ones instead.

My son Ted, who is nine, jumped for joy at the suggestion. Ted is really enjoying all the recipes I have been making with this flour so I thought he would like this one too. Also Ted loves raspberries and chocolate. It’s a perfect combination and it really did make a delicious pancake too. These pancakes may even become our new Sunday morning favourites.

Chocolate and Raspberry Buckwheat Pancakes

Chocolate and Raspberry Buckwheat Pancakes were gobbled up. My husband Howard, Ted and myself all enjoyed these delicious Sunday morning sweet treat breakfasts. These pancakes were easy to make and prepare. I made the batter the night before and stored it in the fridge. The leftover pancakes I put in the freezer for another occasion. All the ingredients in these pancakes are freezable so you could make a batch and freeze them for another occasion. However you decide to eat these pancakes, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
