I have become addicted to Trivia Crack. I am not a big gamer, but for the past few weeks, I have spent at least 20 minutes a day answering trivia questions on this app.
When I woke up this morning, I checked Trivia Crack to see if I had any pending games. It's fun, but a complete waste of time.
I might also have an addiction to pancakes. I make them all the time. They are just so easy. I even enjoy making them for dinner.
This is the 18th pancake recipe on my blog. Some of my favorites have been gingerbread pancakes, chocolate and peanut butter pancakes with chocolate chips, banana pancakes with chocolate chips, and peanut butter pancakes with chocolate chips.
This recipe came from food.com. I have used the recipe before, and it always turns out well. It's chocolaty and fluffy. I added mint extract and Andes mints to the batter. I also ended up adding a little extra flour.
The ingredients are 1 cup milk, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon mint extract, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 and 1/8 cups flour, 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 5 Andes mints. If you make this, you should use 1 teaspoon of mint extract and add more Andes mints.
In a bowl, I combined the milk, melted butter, mint extract, and egg. I whisked these ingredients well.
In another bowl, I added the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
I whisked the dry ingredients together.
I chopped up the Andes mints. I only used five, but that wasn't enough.
I poured the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and whisked until there were no lumps.
I stirred in the Andes mints.
I poured some of the batter into a hot and greased skillet.
I flipped the pancake once bubbles started forming near the center of the pancake. I cooked the other side for a few more minutes.
I ate the pancakes with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
This is a great and highly rating chocolate pancake recipe. I have used it numerous times. The pancakes are airy and soft. The chocolate flavor is pronounced. It has great texture and flavor.
I wasn't satisfied with the mint flavor. It was too subtle. I was cautious because I didn't want the pancakes to taste like toothpaste. The Andes mints disappear in the pancake, but I noticed little bits of mint flavor. If you want discernible bits of chocolate, add chocolate chips.
I will attempt mint pancakes again because this wasn't a complete success. It was good, but the pancakes were too similar to a regular chocolate pancake.
