There’s nothing like waking up to the smell of fresh pancakes on a crisp, fall morning. This fluffy chocolate pancakes recipe possesses a bit of cinnamon and has been dressed up with a delicious and easy pear compote!

Why are these pancakes the best?

They are sooo fluffy and fun to eat. Also, they’re made with simple ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. The cocoa powder that I mixed into the pancake batter added the perfect amount of chocolatey goodness!

A combination of leavening agents like baking powder and baking soda with an acid such as sour cream. Another trick that helps get these nice and fluffy is whisking together your egg and sugar before adding in the other wet ingredients into the bowl.
