  • Buttermilk Pancakes:
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 oz melted unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • "Bloody" Chocolate Covered Strawberry Syrup:
  • 16 oz container of frozen strawberries in their own juice defrosted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs corn starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Chocolate syrup about 2-3 tbs


  1. Pancakes:
  2. Whisk you wet pancake ingredients until combined. Whisk in your dry ingredients and let the batter stand for about 10 minutes. This is a good time to preheat your cooking pan. Cook the pancakes, in your preheated pan, for about a minute or two on each side. Check the pancakes by pressing lightly in the center, if its firm the pancakes are done.
  3. Syrup:
  4. Mix cornstarch and sugar until combined. In a medium sauce pot, add the strawberries with the juice (still cold) and sprinkle with the sugar mixture. Mix well until all evenly combined.
  5. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  6. Using a hand blender, blend the strawberries into puree (or run it through food processor). Strain the mixture through a fine strainer to remove as much seeds as possible.
  7. Mix in the chocolate syrup slowly, while stirring, until the desired color is reached.
