With Valentine's Day on the way I wanted to create special pancakes for my girls. So I whipped together a chocolate batter. I couldn't find one that used ingredients I have so I made up my own using wheat pastry flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, eggs and buttermilk.
I warmed some raspberry preserves on the stove, originally I wanted to use frozen raspberries but decided to just use the preserves because they taste good and I knew they'd warm nicely to make a yummy topping for the pancakes.
Once they were done and the hearts were cut out, I topped them with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and drizzled them with the warmed raspberry preserves. The pancakes were delicious! You can't go wrong with the combination of raspberry and chocolate, especially for Valentine's Day!
