Recipe: White Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Raspberry Syrup

This is for all of us white chocolate lovers… White Chocolate Chip Pancakes… drizzle a little raspberry syrup… okay maybe more than a drizzle… and a little shot of whipped cream… heaven!

Make these pancakes in a heart shape and you have yourself a wonderful little Valentine’s Day breakfast. ….

The recipe is easy and foolproof… one that anyone can make… yes that’s right… anyone... so the white chocolate lover can be indulged a little…


As for the heart pancakes… they are super easy to make with a Nordic Ware Heart Pancake Griddle … you can find it at Target and other stores as well.

You can … of course make these pancakes as you would any other pancakes… and skip the heart shape.

I thought flipping the pancakes in the heart shape wells in the griddle would be difficult but it wasn’t, the entire surface is a griddle so the pancake will cook if you don’t flip it exactly into the heart shaped well again. If you miss… it will slide into the well if nudged with a spatula.

I used self rising flour… if you use all-purpose flour… add ½ teaspoon baking powder and up the quantity of baking powder to ¾ teaspoon.

If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make your own… mix 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar into 1 cup of milk and let it stand 5-10 minutes…. that’s it.. honest!

I found the easiest way to evenly distribute the white chocolate chips in the batter is to scoop the batter onto the griddle and sprinkle the chips over each pancake rather than mixing them into the batter itself.

I used Smuckers Raspberry Syrup.

You can use any flavor syrup you like.. but raspberry just goes so perfectly with white chocolate.

Canned or fresh whipped cream… it’s your choice… if you need a terrific whipped cream recipe… try my Chantilly Cream… the recipe is here.

Treat your someone special this Valentine’s Day.. surprise them with these pancakes!
