Chocolate French Silk Pancakes.
Chocolate french silk pie usually contains raw eggs. And lots and lots of chocolate. And mounds of whipped cream. Mmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Except that whole raw egg thing.
Don’t fear. I’m not sharing pancakes and raw eggs with you today… instead I’m sharing pancakes that taste like french silk pie.
And I owe it all to this little can. Oh, and that cocoa above.
I adore coconut milk. You should too. It’s creamy and delicious.
And if you don’t like coconut? You can’t even taste it in these pancakes. I promise.
Unless you’re some kind of super coconut-tasting sleuth.
Not only are these pancakes simple and quick, they are pretty healthy too.
I topped mine with plain ole’ syrup, but trust me – I wanted to top them with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, vanilla cream glaze, and chocolate chips.
All at once.
Oh, and I gave the pancakes a little sprinkling of cocoa powder.
There is no such thing as too much chocolate.
Creamy and fluffy.
What more could you want from a pancake?

As you can tell, I really hated these. I won’t be making them for a very long time. Like maybe… Friday?

I am all for chocolate pancakes! I wonder if you could use almond milk or something else instead of the coconut milk.
Oh yes, you definitely can. They may not be quite as creamy though. Unless you want to use whole milk or heavy cream of course. :)
heavy cream? now you are talking!
I keep starring recipes in my google reader… I think I’ll have to skip the star and just make these for dinner tonight.
Genius! We adore anything coconut. And chocolate. Duh. We want a tall stack for breakfast!

These look so decadent! I bet some coconut ice cream on top would be amazing!
Whoa…those would probably be the best breakfast ever. ;-)
Pancakes are something I SO enjoy, but never make… gonna be a’changin’!
So, I’m expecting you to be in my kitchen tomorrow morning making me these. Thanks!
What more could I want from a pancake? I want it to be here. In bed with me at 11:08pm, Canberra-time. That’s what I want.
Life is cruel.
These pancakes look like the best pancakes ever!! I love chocolate silk pie, and can’t wait to try these!
These are pancakes after my own heart! These sound so good!! Where do u come up with all these yummies? I wanna be like you when I grow up :)
Recipes as awesome looking as this one make it SUCH a bummer that I’m allergic to coconut :-(
I guess you’ll just have to use heavy cream then. ;)
I would like these for breakfast, please! YUM!
oh these sound too terrible for words…that’s why i’m going to have to make a special trip to the store for coconut milk today. you know, test tasting, quality control ;)
Yummm!! I don’t like coconut at all, but I usually don’t mind coconut milk or oil, so I’m sure it wouldn’t bother me in these. I can’t wait to have a breakfast or brunch so I can make these!
gahhhh these look so good! Josh and I are huge pancake fans. In fact, we’re doing brinner again on Thursday- may need to make up some chocolaty pancakes for the occasion. Beautiful work (as always)
These look very tasty! Might have to give them a try even though I am one of those people that is not a fan of anything coconut! However, I love breakfast food enough to give it a whirl!
Awww man! I totally woke up craving pancakes this morning and definitely don’t have time to make them. This just made my cravings skyrocket! Although, maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to if we get a snow day!! :)
BE STILL MY BEATING HEART.
I will be right over ;)
I love adding coconut milk to my pancakes!
I also chop in some fresh pineapple and
shredded coconut; it’s perfection.
I must remember to add the chocolatey flair next time.
That sounds amazing.
Woah. Delicious. I love coconut milk too, especially in savory dishes like soups and curries. I’ve never used it in sweet recipes — but now you have me thinking about using coconut milk in baked goods! Should we try?!
And yes — I am a coconut hater and LOVE coconut milk. It doesn’t taste like coconut — it’s just creamy and sweet.
I’ve never used it in savory recipes… I know I need to get on that!
Really? I LOVE It in asian inspirted soups and peanuty dip type things.
How fun are these??? Well done girl!!
gorgeous! and, I assume, very very yummy!
Those look out of this world!!!! I want them NOW.
Wowww- these look absolutely amazing.
What a great recipe! They look so fluffy. Yum.
Mmmmm…I used to have a roommate who would make French Silk Pie when she was bored. I’d come home from class and there would be all of this extra chocolate french silk in the refrigerator…it’s no wonder I gained weight in grad school!! :-)
These look just as delicious!!
Umm… best roommate ever?
Oh. My. Goodness. These look amazing. And the fact that you can’t taste the coconut milk makes me want to try this even more! I’m not a huge coconut fan! We may be having these for breakfast this weekend!
This one is pure genius. I remember getting French Silk Pie at Bob Evans with my grandparents when I was really little :) Considering I eat pancakes every Saturday morning now, and I have an obsession with adding as many new and unique ingredients as I can, these guys will definitely be on the to-make list soon! I could see myself sprinkling some toasted slivered almonds on top~
Thank you so much for sharing :)
Toasted almonds? Drool.
I just saved this recipe. My kids are pancake fanatics! They would LOVE these! Thanks!
I agree that there is no such thing as too much chocolate. Especially at breakfast.
Must. Make. Pancakes.
I’ve actually been loving waffles lately…store-bought though! – don’t shoot me! – they are Mesa Sunrise and actually have relatively healthy ingredients…? ;)
ooh, great idea to use the coconut milk! I love cocoa + coconut together. Yum. I think we need to have a breakfast party together sometime.
OMG I also am loving coconut milk! I just got sent a HUGE jar of coconut oil and need some recipes to make with it! i was thinking of coconut granola? anything else you have in mind send it my way!!! You should see this thing of coconut oil, seriously is bigger than my head!
Is it from Tropical Traditions? Those things are giant!
OMG those look so decadent! I want! Mmmm…creamy.
But Friday is so far away!! ;)
Mmm, chocolate and coconut. I’m so jealous of your Trader Joe’s!
Wow these pancakes look amazing! I love coconut milk too, but would’ve never thought to use it in pancake batter. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
Ohhh myy goodness. I had a delicious bowl of oatmeal already this morning, but now I want a HUGE stack of these. These look like the most heavenly pancakes ever! Maybe for lunch? :)
Fluffy and creamy = perfection!
I fully intend to make these if I manage a snow day tomorrow!
I adore coconut milk in pancakes! Well done & the perfect breakfast or snack. xo
Chocolate for breakfast, yes please!
Um in honor of a snow day, I’m making pancakes.
Or at least, I thought they were pancakes.
Then I looked at yours. Yours are like the elegant grown up pancakes.
Mine are like toddlers.
These look amazing – I want them now!! Boston should be getting a major snow storm tomorrow…these would be a perfect snow day breakfast :)
Yeah, those do look awful ;-)
Another pancake recipe for the books!
Holy pancake HEAVEN!! :)
Ummm . . . Yum!!! I can’t believe I’ve never had chocolate pancakes before. I’m a little disappointed in myself. This is an awesome idea.
Oh yum, this totally kicks chocolate chip pancakes’ butt, I must try them!!!!
I can’t believe I’ve never had french silk pie. Using coconut milk in pancakes is genius. Yummmm
You NEED to have some.
