Coconut Syrup with Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Chocolate Chip Waffles

Shares 1

I don’t usually share 3 recipes in one post, but today I just have to.  Sunday, I was browsing around Tina’s blog, Mommy’s Kitchen and stumbled on this recipe for Coconut Syrup.  I had to make it and knew it would be perfect with chocolate chip waffles.  It was.

We still had syrup left over, so today for lunch we had it with chocolate chip pancakes.  Delish!  Keep reading for the recipes for all 3.

Coconut Syrup

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or add 1 Tbs. vinegar to 3/4 cup milk)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract

In a saucepan, melt the butter, sugar and buttermilk together.  Stir frequently.  Bring it to a boil and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add the soda and extract.  It will bubble up a bit, but just stir until the fizz goes down.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

This recipe is from the January issue of Southern Living.  I added chocolate chips.

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Whisk together the eggs and buttermilk (I used milk soured with vinegar again.)  Gradually stir the wet ingredients into the dry.  Stir only enough to combine the ingredients.  Over stirring causes tough pancakes.  The batter will be lumpy.  Stir in the melted butter, gently combining.  Add in the chocolate chips.

Cook in a skillet on top of the stove or on a griddle.  If you use the griddle set the temp at 350 degrees.  I found the batter to be very runny and my pancakes were thin, but the taste was wonderful, especially with the coconut syrup.

Chocolate Chip Waffles

This recipe comes from Country Living Country Morning Cookbook.  I added the chocolate chips.

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs, separated, at room temp
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.  Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave.  Stir the milk and then the egg yolks into the butter.  Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix.

With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.  Carefully fold the egg whites into the batter.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Cook in the waffle iron.
