Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream

This was taken from a Paula Deen magazine. My children loved it all, the pancakes, the cream and the homemade syrup. It's definitely a weekend meal unless you have lots of time on a weekday morning.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 large eggs, separated
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate morsels
4 Tablespoons butter, divided
Homemade Maple Syrup
Cinnamon Cream

Preheat griddle to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, combine milk, egg yolks, and 3 T melted butter; add to flour mixture, whisking until smooth. In a small bowl, beat egg whites at medium-high speed w/ an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold into batter. Fold in chocolate morsels. Melt 2 T butter on hot griddle. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto hot griddle. Cook until top bubbles, turn and cook until done..repeat w/ remaining batter. Serve with Homemade syrup and cinnamon cream.

Homemade Maple Syrup

3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water, vanilla, and maple flavoring. Bring to a boil over med-high heat; boil for 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool.

Cinnamon Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a medium bowl (I put my bowl and beaters in the freezer until ready to use), beat cream at med-high speed w/ an electric mixer until thickened. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar and cinnamon, beating until stiff peaks form. Cover, and chill.

Oh my gosh, these look divine! and so gorgeous! I got thinking you could "short cut" if you wanted to use a boxed mix (I love Krustez) and keep real maple syrup on hand for these special! MMMMM Those Deans! mmm

Sounds very good! Pancakes and waffles are about the only thing I have eaten every morning for the past 13 weeks! :) It is the only thing I can keep down.
