The Devils Delight pancakes are one of two items I find myself returning to indulge in from Pancakes on the Rocks. I hadn’t had them in a while, so when the occasion arose to celebrate my recent publication, I went with D to eat these pancakes for breakfast. Yes, breakfast.
What are these Devil Delight pancakes? They are ‘chocolate pancakes with strawberries, cream, chocolate ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce’.
Now, the description is a little misleading — they taste less like pancakes and more like thin slices of really good chocolate cake. And by really good, I mean that they’re just the right amount of fluffy with a decent chocolate flavour (that is, none of that weak pseudo-chocolate flavour you get from Asian or red velvet cake). I could do with a little less cream, but together with the ice cream and strawberries, the pancakes were just as I was used to — don’t you like it when you return to a restaurant after a long time and they still make your favourite dishes just the same? I do!
Pancakes on the Rocks is located at 100 Briens Road, Northmead NSW 2152.
