It’s Pancakes again today. Little over a week ago I tried the new Birds Eye Classic Pancakes and today it is the turn of Birds Eye Chocolate Chip Pancakes, because surely everything is better with a little bit of chocolate in!
Part of their new breakfast range, Birds Eye have aimed to slash the time it takes to make pancakes and waffles so we can enjoy them with minimal effort. For best results toast from frozen, albeit if you fancy it you can also microwave them. I opted again for toasting, it does say 3 minutes for toasty perfection but I found that to be too long, but it will depend on your toaster settings.
The pancakes were crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, I found these not to be as light and fluffy as the Classic variety and instead were pretty stodgy. The chocolate was a welcome factor to the pancake and even more so that I got some chocolate chips with every single bite, winning! The chocolate itself was pretty bitter dark chocolate which worked nicely against the sweeter pancake and although not melted, they were soft. I suspect if you microwave these you’ve more chance of a melted chocolate chip situation. I must say these pancakes were pleasant on their own as well as accompanied with my banana yoghurt.
As a quick and different breakfast or treat these Birds Eye Chocolate Chip Pancakes really do tick the box. At £1.80 for 6 okay sized pancakes it isn’t too expensive either. What does baffle me is the consistency of the pancake differs from Classic to Chocolate Chip, but the chocolate is the winning factor here and they are something I would buy again.
