Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes

9:04 PM

When I saw the recipe for "Milk Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Pancakes"on Joy The Baker blog, I new that I would have to make these for my grand children.

Sure enough, it wasn't two days later, and two of my grandsons spent the night with us. Before we even had their beds ready for them, they were asking "what are we going to have for breakfast in the morning?" One said "can we have waffles?" I thought well that might work. Then about that time the other one said "can we have pancakes?" So I asked them, "how about us having Chocolate Chip Pancakes in the morning?" They were agreeable and pancakes it was.

The grandsons are still raving about them, and I can see many request for them in the future. One of them said, "how will having them for dessert sound?" I think he may be on to something!

These pancakes are rich in flavor, so I did serve a little pancake syrup on the side.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Recipe Adapted From: Joy The Baker
    2 eggs
    2 cups flour
    2 tablespoons sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 cups buttermilk
    4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
    1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1/2 - 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until a smooth consistency. Fold in chocolate chips and let batter set for a few minutes.

Heat griddle or pan over medium heat. Add a teaspoon of oil to the pan or spray with cooking spray. You can test to see if the pan is hot enough by adding a few drops of water. If or when the drops start to dance it is hot enough.

Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle, depending on how big you want the pancakes. Cook on the first side until bubbles come to the surface and start to pop. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Place cooked pancakes in a 200 degree F. oven until ready to serve.
