Easter Breakfast - Chocolate Pancakes

I love having a special breakfast on at least one day of the weekend, and as this weekend was a long one I decided to make my favourite chocolate pancakes this morning. 

A cafe called Capers in Dunedin makes the best pancakes in town (well I think so!) - I wanted to make the same kind of thing at home and after some trial and error came up with a recipe that gave the same results, but it was cheaper and without the 5 minute car ride!

I usually just make it on the fly and don't measure anything, its basically a piklet mix with cocoa added in the end. Perfect with kiwifruit, rock melon, honeydew melon, watermelon and thick Greek yogurt all covered in maple syrup. Yum!!

I hope everyone has been enjoying the long weekend, I've been road-tripping, catching up with family and having lots of cuddles with my chocolate lab Hershey!

Happy Easter and as today is ANZAC Day as well in New Zealand - Lest we forget, remember those that fought for our country.
