McDonald’s came out with a twist on their hotcakes — choc chip hotcakes ($1.00 each) — at the end of 2016.
These hot cakes, sold individually, came separately in their own paper bag rather than a tray and without the maple syrup and whipped butter accompanying the usual hot cakes. And with each choc chip hotcake generously studded with molten choc chips and full of buttery flavour like a good pikelet, there’s no need for the extra sweetness or butteriness. These are more of a dessert than breakfast, but that’s not much different from their usual hotcakes and indeed they’re less sweet than a maple syrup soaked pancake.
At $1.00 each, they’re cheaper than usual hotcakes ($4.20 for 3 hotcakes + maple syrup + whipped butter) and an added dessert option with their all-day breakfast menu.
Choc Chip Hotcakes appeared on McDonald’s menus in Sydney, Australia during December 2016.
