Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cookie Dough Crumble

Yes, I know I am pregnant with some weird cravings, but trust me on this one. It’s soooo worth every single calorie. Now, please don’t eat these pan “cakes” for breakfast. This is absolutely a DESSERT. I repeat. This is a dessert 🙂

I am kinda giddy about how crazy good these little stacked cakes are. With a melty cookie dough crumble on top, please prepare your taste buds!


Is there anything better than a simple, irresistible recipe? Nope.

How to Make The Best Dessert Pancakes

Alright, whip up your pan “cake” batter!


Mini Chocolate Chips.

Add those cuties to the mixer!


Ok, we’re ready to cook the batter just like you would a pancake!

See how fun?

Stack em’ all up and get ready for that cookie dough crumble.

This is similar to my cookie dough frosting with just a couple minor changes. It’s incredible!

Place a few tablespoons of cookie dough over your stack of pan “cakes” and bake at 400 degrees F. for 5 minutes to warm up!

Pour a little drizzle of maple syrup on top and dig in!

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. With a spoon, spoon cake batter into the center of hot skillet, about 3 tablespoons. With spoon, spread into a round circle.
  • Let cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cooked through. Transfer to cake stand. Continue cooking pan "cakes" until you've prepared the amount you'd like.

    I know you say not for breakfast, but I’m making this for my boyfriend’s birthday breakfast. Because why not! His favorite ice cream is cookie dough with extra cookie dough so I figured it’ll make his day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Giggity giggity. These are some mouth-watering, finger-licking cakes. I did a double take before realizing these were for real. And what a treat for breakfast. Winner winner…nothing rhymes with that for breakfast.
