Chocolate Mudslide Pancakes

I've never actually had a Mudslide to drink, but it sounds like something right up my alley— chocolate, Kahlua, and Bailey's Irish Cream. I bought a bottle of Bailey's awhile back with a strong desire to make a Bailey's syrup. Bailey's syrup on chocolate pancakes seemed like the perfect combination. We didn't have any Kahlua, so instead we added some ground coffee to the pancake batter to get that flavor but feel free to incorporate some Kahlua into the syrup (really more of a glaze, if you will) if you have it available.


Despite these being tagged as a breakfast, we actually ate them for dinner one evening when we had practically nothing in the house. No cheese, no bread, not even snacks. We happened to have a single egg and a little bit of milk leftover from Christmas baking plus my pantry baking staples, so we had just enough to throw these pancakes together. Not bad for a pieced together dinner!

These were perfectly fluffy pancakes and the flavor was spot on with what we wanted. I might have eaten a little more than I originally intended to!
