The first time I had chocolate chip pancakes was at a diner that was down the street from the first house my husband and I shared together. Mmmm, the were so yummy...it's been a long, long time since I've had them at that diner, but Saturday and Sundays at our house often include big breakfasts with homemade chocolate chip pancakes. For a long time, my husband made them using a box mix, but a few months ago I found this recipe from Allrecipes and decided to try them out. I think my kids are spoiled now with my version that includes chocolate syrup and whipped cream!
Fluffy Pancakes (Adapted from Allrecipes)
3/4 c. milk
2 tbs vinegar
1 c. flour
2 tbs sugar (I sometimes use brown sugar)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbs butter, melted
a glug or two of vanilla
a sprinkling of cinnamon
Combine milk and vinegar and set aside for about 5 minutes to sour. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk egg, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon into the soured milk and then add to flour mixture. Whisk until lumps are gone. Add chocolate chips...more or less as you desire!
Heat up a skillet and spray with cooking spray. Depending on how big you want to make your pancakes (I use a cookie scoop that is on the larger side) pour batter onto the skillet. When batter starts to bubble, flip and cook until browned on the other side.
Like I said, I serve mine all yummy like with chocolate syrup and whipped cream (and maple syrup too, of course!) Super good, and great for a sit down family breakfast!!!
