Make "Garnish" by stirring all "Garnish Ingredients" in mug, topping with cream, then consume.
In glass stir together milk & vinegar. Allow to set for 5minutes to “sour.”
After 5minutes, whisk egg, butter, oil, & vanilla extract into milk mixture.
Meanwhile, in large mixing bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder / soda, cinnamon, & salt.
Fold wet ingredients into dry, stirring until just-mixed.
Add chocolate chips & stir again, until batter well-mixed, but slightly lumpy.
In 4-6 tablespoon increments, pour batter into greased hot skillet, over medium heat.
Cook on side1 until bubbles appear & edges begin to brown.
Flip with spatula & cook side2 for additional 60-90 seconds, or until pancake cooked through.
Set pancake aside on cooling rack & repeat process until all batter used.
To plate, top with dusting of powdered sugar & light drizzle of syrup.
Serve pancakes with 2nd mug of "Garnish" & consume this breakfast of champions like the boss that you are. Cheers!
Immediately after the batter is poured, with the backside of a spoon spread the batter evenly across the cake, in a circular-like fashion - preventing the cake from rising unevenly from the center, like a pillow.
