Switch things up for breakfast with these delectable chocolate hot cakes made with brown rice and your favorite toppings.
Cook rice according to package directions; let cool completely.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, evaporated milk and vanilla; stir in melted butter. Whisk into flour mixture just until combined (batter will be lumpy). Fold in 3/4 of rice. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 275˚F. Heat large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush skillet with some oil; reduce heat to medium-low. Using heaping 1/2 cup batter per pancake, cook pancakes in batches for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles start to form on top and edges are dry. Flip over and cook for about 2 minutes or until golden on bottom, wiping the pan with a paper towel and brushing with more oil as needed. (You should have 12 pancakes.) Keep warm in the oven on a rack set or a baking sheet.
Toppings: Meanwhile, whip cream until stiff peaks form. Serve pancakes with whipped cream, cajeta, chocolate sauce and strawberry jam.
Use store-bought chocolate sauce or prepare your own by heating 2/3 cup heavy cream in a small saucepan set over medium heat just until boiling. Remove from heat; whisk in 3.5 oz chocolate chips and 2 tbsp honey until smooth.
