The Perfect Idea for a Romantic Breakfast


I take full credit for finding this recipe.

When I was working at a Bed and Breakast I was always on the lookout for new breakfast ideas. I found this one on Epicurious.com,  although I can't find it there anymore. 

But I remembered the recipe. It was single-handledly one of the favorite recipes we served on the weekends. It was our "Sunday Special".

And we always served it on Valentine's Weekend.
You almost feel guilty for eating dessert for breakfast...

And then you taste it and you get over the guilt real fast.


So if you are looking for a romantic breakfast to serve someone in bed....This is your recipe.



Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel Banana Topping

Topping:
1 stick butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
3-4 bananas

Melt the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup until starts to simmer and bubble up. Pour in heavy cream. Stir and lower to a simmer while you make the pancakes

Chocolate Pancakes:
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp melted butter

Combine all dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients including melted butter and wisk together. Cook pancakes on a griddle or frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil.

Add sliced bananas on top of pancakes and drizzle caramel over...
