    I see you have a TON of comments (and compliments!) already, but I’m sure you’d like one more, no? So here’s mine: THANK YOU FOR SHARING! Oh, I have to copy this to try, they look SO delicious!

    I just made them! FANTASTIC! A few suggestions: The cinnamon mixture seemed quite thin. I would use 1/2 stick of butter. Also, when you flip the pancakes, the cinnamon mixture is now caramelizing and really gets stuck on the spatula so next time I will spray the spatula each time with nonstick spray. Other than that — they are really amazing!

    OH WOW! Last night we had chocolate-chocolate chip pancakes and they were DECADENT, to say the least. After the meal I mentioned that I wanted to try to find other ways to jazz up our favorite breakfast style dish. And then this morning… I found this blog … and I cannot wait to try this! Thanks :)

    This looks so good! I will have to give it a try! I can say – everyone loves that banana bread recipe on here – I make it about once a week and give a loaf away each time – everyone loves it. My mom (who hates banana bread and doesn’t like anything I cook) even said how great it was!
