Chocolate Chip Pancake With Maple Syrup Buttercream

Chocolate Chip Pancake With Maple Syrup Buttercream

Happy weekend, JavaCupcakers! For those of you in the US, Happy 4th of July weekend! These cupcakes are a great way to start off your weekend ;)

This is another little switcheroo recipe… you’ve seen it before, with blueberries, still a fav of mine, but this time, I kicked it up a notch and added mini chocolate chips.  These were pretty awesome, I made them for a lovely little lady so I wanted them to look sweet & simple.  The cute rose liners were definitely a plus!  Happy breakfast baking …
