This month for my Coffee-mate Ambassador post, I’m bringing you a recipe from my husband, Patrick. Just the same as me, he was too excited for the new Latin-themed flavors – Abuelita® Mexican Chocolate and La Lechera® Dulce de Leche. These are so tasty, they lend for a lot of recipe ideas! While I opt to put them in my iced coffee – just a splash works for me – he created an entire breakfast menu around them! Mainly the Abuelita!
Follow the directions on the pancake mix and sub out the milk for the Abuelita Mexican Chocolate Coffee-mate. This will create a heavier pancakae, so if you want it lighter, add a bit of water to thin out the mixture.
Fold in some crushed walnuts!
Spoon onto a non-stick griddle. Let them cook on one side until the edges are brown, then flip and cook on the other side.
Now, once they are done, you have options. I liked them plain with a bit of butter and syrup. But Patrick? He laid on the whipped cream, he even drew an “A” for Abuelita! Then he drizzled on some Abuelita chocolate syrup too.
