Vegan Cheery Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

Chocolate Cherry Pancakes and locally made maple syrup.

Though I had no cardamom on hand (but plenty of cherries!), this divinely sweet recipe was inspired by My Little Celebration's Chocolate Cardamom Pancakes.

1 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup pitted and chopped cherries

On the stove, place a non-stick skillet on medium high.

Pit & chop cherries.
In a small bowl, mix soy milk & apple cider vinegar. Set aside & let curdle for 5 minutes.
Blend all dry ingredients, gradually adding curdled mixture , coconut oil, applesauce, & vanilla.
Fold in cherries.
Place a modest sized amount onto hot skillet. Turn baby over when bubbling & edges are crisp.
No light silver dollars, these rich chocolaty, fluffy pancakes came out pretty thick, almost cake like and it was a darn shame to eat without company around. Indulging in this type of sinful decadence can be downright devilish if you know what I mean.
Next time I will try adding toasted walnuts and that interesting cardamom ingredient.
That bit of spice may bring tart juiciness of cherries down on the knees....

Mmmmhmmm, cherries & luxurious maple syrup drenching atop of chocolate mountain.
Overall- very delicious, satisfying, & enough leftovers to satisfy Sunday morning tea!
