Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

Earlier this summer we had an overflowing bowl of cherries and out of nowhere my son wanted to make cherry pancakes.  Inspired by Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream, I decided to take it up a notch and add chocolate.  So into our buttermilk pancakes went the chocolate and cherry chunks.  In the height of cherry season this was a rich summer treat.  But even now that summer is winding down there is something warm and cozy about this sweet breakfast that I can envision in the middle of winter, using frozen cherry pieces to remind us of basking in the summer sun.  For something a bit less decadent, simply omit the chocolate and use fresh or frozen cherries.  To make a variety of plain, cherry and chocolate cherry pancakes, add the cherry and/or chocolate chunks individually to some of the pancakes as they cook.
