  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 pint strawberries diced small
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • confectioners sugar for garnish


  • Dice the strawberries and set them aside.
  • Whisk the five dry ingredients - flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix egg, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter.
  • Pour the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk for 2-3 minutes. minutes.
  • Set the mixture aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a large no-stick skillet on medium-low heat. If needed spray the skillet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into the skillet. I get three pancakes in my skillet.
  • Drop several mini chocolate chips on top of each pancake.
  • As the pancakes cook, small bubbles will begin to form on top.
  • The bubbles will then begin to pop and create small holes. When the bubbles start popping it's time to flip the pancakes.
  • Once you flip them, cook for another 2 minutes.


  • Place the pancakes in two rows on a cookie sheet or cutting board.
  • Spread a tablespoon of sour cream on each pancake.
  • Place 1-2 tablespoons of the diced strawberries on the top half of the pancake.
  • Fold the bottom half of the pancake over the strawberries and press lightly.
  • Serve on a large platter with the remaining strawberries.
  • Dust with powdered sugar for garnish.


  • The key to making the best pancakes is to let the batter sit so don't miss this important step.
  • The trick to flipping any type of pancake is to use your wrist. It takes a little practice but once you get it you'll become a pro.
  • I recommend placing the cooked pancakes on a cookie sheet in a 200° oven while you cook the entire batch.
  • These pancake tacos are also good with pineapple, cherries, or raspberries. You can also mix it up by substituting Greek yogurt or cream cheese for the sour cream.
