Yield 6-8 pancakes

7 strawberries, cut thinly
1 ¼ cup AP flour
¼ cup dark cocoa powder, unsweetened
3 tablespoons white sugar
Pinch salt
2 eggs
1 ¼ cup buttermilk
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon butter

Place cut strawberries in a small pan over low heat and macerate until softened. Set aside.

Sift together flour, cocoa, salt and sugar in a large bowl.

In a second large bowl, mix egg, buttermilk, and vanilla.

Add the flour mixture into the buttermilk mix and whisk until smooth. Add in chocolate chips, and let stand one hour

Brown 1 teaspoon of butter in a frying pan over medium high heat, and add pancake batter ¼ cup at a time. Allow cakes to cook until the surface bubbles have all opened. Flip, and cook until cakes are firm to the touch.

Remove from pan, top with macerated strawberries and fresh whipped cream.
