“There was no time for chit-chat when there were chocolate chip pancakes to be eaten.”
― Kristen Day, Forsaken
When I was little, I looked forward to sleeping over at a good friend’s house because EVERY Sunday morning her dad made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and then we’d float around her hot tub until we looked like cooked lobsters.
Oh how I’d like to float around a hot tub now. Ahhh, nice hot relaxation.
Okay, reality says… I don’t have a hot tub but I certainly learned how to make some awesome Chocolate Chip Pancakes since then.
Since I can’t offer you a relaxing dip… let’s make some delicious pancakes!
I know, I know, chocolate chip pancakes have been around forever.
My girlfriend swears that she can’t make pancakes if they don’t come from a box.
There really is nothing to making chocolate chip pancakes that is hard.
If you choose to use the box… I would make the largest portion possible and add 1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips to your mix before you cook them to put your own spin on it.
For those that don’t mind measuring 3 extra minutes to make fantastic flapjacks, puffy hotcakes, flavorful griddle cakes… make those memories that stick with the ones you love.
In a bowl add:
2 Cups Flour
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
3 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 Cups Milk
Using a whisk, mix all of the ingredients together until it’s all nicely blended.
Mix in 1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips
Prepare a griddle or pan that you can comfortably cook these yummy chocolate chip pancakes in.
Griddle should be set to 200 degrees and the stove top should be set to medium high.
I like to grease my pan with some plain old butter to prevent sticking.
Plus butter makes them tasted freakin’ fantastic straight from the pan!
I like to use a ladle to add my pancake mix to my pan.
Adding roughly about 1/3 Cup of pancake mix per chocolate chip pancake.
The one downfall is that the chocolate chips do have a tendency to try to hide and stick to the ladle instead of becoming a part of my beautiful breakfast.
Those big bubbles we see in the chocolate chip pancake are a really good thing.
It means that it’s cooking through and in just a few moments you will need a spatula to get that sweet breakfast treat flipped to cook on the other side.
See how the edge appears to be firmer than the center of the cake and there is a nice golden brown color peeking out around the edge. That means it’s time to flip.
Flipping takes practice.
Everyone has to clean a wayward flipped chocolate chip pancake from the stove top, the floor, or perhaps the dog, a time or two before we become the expert flippers we once used to admire.
Alright, so my flipping wont win award but it does the job. 😉
You might like to serve them topped with maple syrup, powdered sugar, homemade fresh whipped cream or a favorite jam.
Store any leftover chocolate chip pancakes in a tightly sealed Ziploc for later.
My kiddos like to heat them up the next morning but one of them LOVES them cold.
I like them re-heated with a scoop of ice cream.
THAT is my kind of treat!
Our leftover chocolate chip pancakes don’t stay leftover for long but I would suspect they would keep well for 2-3 days.
Breakfast, brunch, or for a breakfast for dinner sort of evening, enjoy a sweet treat!
