This is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need for this Brownie Mix Pancake Recipe. Specific measurements and full recipe instructions are in the printable recipe card below.
- brownie mix – the dry mix, not prepared
- pancake mix – I’ve used Bisquick, Krusteaz, etc.
- eggs – to hold the pancake together
- milk – to add liquid to the batter
- your choice of toppings
How to make Brownie Pancakes?
- Preheat a large pan or skillet, or a large griddle to medium heat.
- In a large bowl stir together the dry ingredients, the brownie mix and the pancake mix.
- Then add in the eggs and milk and stir until the batter is just combined. It’s okay if there are still some small lumps in the batter, you don’t want to over mix it.
- Grease the pan or griddle with butter or cooking spray. Then scoop 1/4 cup of batter at a time onto the pan. You can cook a few pancakes at a time if there is enough space between them.
- Once the top of the pancakes start to get little bubbles, flip them over and continue cooking until both sides are cooked and crisped and the pancake is cooked through.
- Top the pancakes with your favorite toppings. I like whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and fresh strawberry slices.
Chocolate Pancake Topping Ideas:
- Whipped Cream
- Chocolate Syrup
- Caramel Syrup
- Melted Peanut Butter
- Fresh Berries – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.
These brownie mix pancakes are the perfect breakfast, brunch, or dinner for the chocolate lover in your life. They’re delicious fluffy pancakes that taste like a fudgy brownie and will be one of your favorite recipes for a special day.
