Omigoodness! That sounds decadent!

Does it count as a recipe from a sims fan if you just put a link to some commecial recipe site?

No one ever complained before... and I did make them for breakfast this morning!

I could copy and paste the whole thing, but it would probably screw up the formatting beyond belief...

CHOCOLATE GRIDDLE CAKES WITH CHOCOLATE SAUCE

We recommend serving these griddle cakes with orange slices on the side.

Active time: 45 min Start to finish: 45 min
For sauce
1 cup heavy cream
7 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), finely chopped

For griddle cakes
1/2 cup Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 whole large eggs
1 large egg yolk
3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Unsalted butter for greasing griddle

Make sauce:
Bring cream to a boil in a 1-quart saucepan, then pour hot cream over chocolate in a bowl, gently whisking until smooth. Keep warm or at room temperature.

Make griddle cakes:
Sift together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, then whisk in eggs, yolk, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla until combined well.

Heat a griddle or nonstick skillet over moderately low heat and lightly coat with butter.

Working in batches of 2 or 3, pour 1/4 cup batter per cake onto hot griddle and cook until bubbles appear on surface, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip cakes with a large spatula and cook until tops spring back when pressed gently, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to griddle between batches.

Serve cakes in stacks, topped with chocolate sauce.

Makes 4 dessert or brunch servings.

It sounds kind of like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, except that the cakes are baked on a griddle instead of in the oven.

Luscious!

In the picture in the magazine, the sauce is runny, like sauce or chocolate syrup, not thick like frosting.

They're also clearly breakfast type "pancakes" not cakes. They're not even as thick as madelines.

I gotta try this! My usual breakfast is a cup of coffee and a couple of bran muffins.

For me, that would get old fast. You could at least make my version of the Bisquick muffin with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips...
