Chocolate Pancakes with Vanilla Cream Sauce

These yummy little "cakes" are one of our SPECIAL breakfasts, you know for holidays or other special occasions. Let me tell ya, they are DELISH! If you are craving chocolate or are just CHOCOHOLICS like we are at our house, I would say EATING some of these would be the best way to start your day.

Chocolate Pancakes with Vanilla Cream Sauce
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons applesauce (Or you can more oil and less applesauce)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 1 1/4 cups milk (Depending on how thick you want the pancakes!)
Chocolate chips (I used mini semisweet)

Vanilla Cream Sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

In a bowl, combine all the pancake ingredients except chocolate chips. Set aside.

In a saucepan, combine the cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Whisk the milk and yolks together and then gradually stir into the sugar mixture in pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it starts to boil and thicken. (Don't turn up the heat though or you will have scrambled eggs!) Remove from heat and then stir in the butter and vanilla.

Make pancakes with the pancake batter and serve with the warm sauce over top. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

TIP: Serve with sliced strawberries on top or on the side for an extra special treat! You could also stir some chocolate chips into the batter if you want more chocolate. :)
