We often make pancakes in our household during the weekends either as a special breakfast or lunch and as easy as pancakes are to mix up from scratch I have to be honest and say that we generally buy pancakes in packet mix form and make them up this way as this is just so convenient and there is no need to measure any dry ingredients and Miss 2 loves that she is pretty much able to mix these up herself. Usually we tend to buy a packet of pancake mix from another leading company of packet mixes, but on this occasion while I was at the local supermarket I noticed a 'NEW' sign advertising the new Cafe Creations range of pancakes from Edmonds, these came in 2 different flavours Real Chocolate & French Vanilla and also in Blueberry & Buttermilk.
Funnily enough when making pancakes I will often add either chocolate chips or blueberries to the mix for an added extra taste, I liked the sound of the chocolate and french vanilla so these were the ones I brought. The pancakes were easy enough to mix up with just 2 ingredients milk and eggs needing to be added to the dry ingredients, which were well mixed together in minutes. There seemed to be a good amount of dark chocolate chips through the mix, though these did seem to stick to the bottom of the mixing bowl about which was a bit problematic for when it came to placing spoonfuls of the mixture into the frying pan to cook, you had to give the mixture a bit of a stir for each pancake you were making just to ensure you could scoop up a fair amount of the chocolate chips per each pancake.
The mixture cooked quickly only taking between 1 and 2 minutes per side to cook, and they didn't burn easily nor did the chocolate stick to the pan. We served these with maple syrup, cream and banana, and the flavours went really well together, though the flavour of the chocolate was very evidently there the flavour of the vanilla was not, it was kind of like what you'd expect the vanilla to be like in any other pancake. However the pancakes were lovely light and fluffy, everything that you really want a pancake to be like.
The price of these pancakes is similar to other packet pancake mixes out there, so id happily buy these again if I was after a chocolate chip flavoured pancake to make as it saves having to add the chocolate yourself, these make a great treat.
