There is an endless supply of ill fated cooking attempts with me as the star. This one just happens to be a tribute to Bill Cosby who once served his kids chocolate cake for breakfast.
No one was threatening me with a bucket of ice water, I just wanted chocolate pancakes. Couldn’t be that hard right? Well I rummaged around in the pantry and found muffin mix. On the back of the mix was a picture of a chocolate bread loaf so clearly this was a multipurpose mix. I poured it in a bowl, added the right amount of milk and poured it into a pan. It was so thin it might as as well have been a crepe with mountains of chocolate chips sitting in the middle like pyramids. So I added more. In fact… I poured in the whole bowl. Mistake number two. This is the point of no return. I could have poured the mix into the muffin tin and saved breakfast, but I did not. I decided if I could not make pancakes, I was going to make a cake… on the stove.
