Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel Banana Topping

Did you know that yesterday was National Pancake Day?  Well neither did I!  Well, not until about 5pm last night when it was too late to write a post for the day.  So here I am.  Late again.  This is not unusual for me.  This is not surprising.  This is very normal.  If you know me, you know that I am almost always late and occasionally on time.  So it is only fitting that I write this slightly late after the fact post today in honor of National Pancake Day which was yesterday.  Don’t worry these were worth the wait…
Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel Banana Topping
Caramel Banana Topping:
1 stick butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
3-4 bananas
Melt the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup
until it starts to simmer and bubble up.
Pour in the heavy cream.
Stir and lower to a simmer while you make the pancakes…
Chocolate Pancakes:
1/3 cup cocoa
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp melted butter
Combine all the dry ingredients together.
Add the wet ingredients including melted butter and whisk together.
Cook the pancakes on a griddle or frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil.
Top with sliced bananas and drizzle caramel over.
