13 And Chocolate Pancakes

Chloe 13 

My baby turns 13 today. Waaa no more little girls. I had to watch the animated Peter Rabbit movie by myself the other day {;o

For her birthday breakfast-in-bed she wanted chocolate pancakes with sliced bananas and whipped cream, fresh strawberries on the side, bacon and pink lemonade. For dinner she wants swiss cheese, bacon, mushroom pizza (from Central market), soda and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Sounds like she turned 13.

I had to laugh because I ALWAYS make my own whipped cream (it is cheaper, not as sweet and just plain better), so I surprised Chloe and bought the canned stuff, she was soooo excited. Over the moon.

Happy birthday sweetpea, you are growing into a beautiful, giving, creative young lady. You rock xoxoxo

Chocolate Pancakes, see note below

2 cups flour

1/4 cup coco powder

1 TBL baking powder

1.2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup chocolate milk or soy milk

4 tsp. melted butter, cooled

2 eggs

1/4 cup chopped chocolate

Run flour, coco powder, baking powder thought sieve to get rid of lumps. Pour into a larger bowl and add salt and chopped chocolate. In another small bowl whisk together eggs, milk and butter. Then mix wet into dry. If batter is too thick, add a bit ore milk, till you get the consistency you like. Ladle batter into hot butter pan. Wait till edges look cooked and little bubble cover the surface. Then flip and cook other side.


you can use whole wheat pastry flour instead. I like chopped chocolate because chips just seemed to big to me and grated chocolate seemed to small. But remember please your palate, not mine !!!

Chocolate pancakes with whipped cream sound like a Dream Breakfast! Happy Birthday Chloe. (and Happy Birthday Mom, you played a very important part)



Happy Birthday, Chloe!! Love that you fix your girls breakfast in bed and special meals. I am going to start implementing that with the next birthday that comes along.

Happy Birthday to Chloe!!! She has such a sweetness about her, great picture :) I think it's wonderful that you prepare special meals (whatever the girls like or want) for their Birthday. And in bed to boot! Sounds like a great day :)


Dear Clarice,

Happy birthday to Chloe! Thirteen is a special year; the portal to womanhood! Looks like she had a yummy breakfast and dinner.

Like Paula, I would have watched Peter Rabbit with you, too (We actually DID watch it the other day!).




Ooooh, Chloe! Happy Birthday!! I can't believe you're 13! I remember so plainly the day you were born. It truly does seem like yesterday. (My heavens, I'm old.)

Hope you have a special day. (And I hope your Mom does too. It's a very special day for her as well!)



Oooh Yum! Happy Birthday Chloe!


Dear Clarice,

What a lovely photo!!! Chloe is such a beautiful, sweet, kind, and caring young lady!!!! We love and adore her!!! Her birthday breakfast sounds so yummy!!! I can see she is enjoying it! You are such a good momma to treat her to all her favorite things!!! I am sorry you had to watch Peter Rabbit by yourself, if I were there I would have loved to watch it with you! I will have to make these chocolate pancakes for my dear ones. They will love them! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Happy, happy Birthday to Chloe!!!!
