Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My family loves chocolate chip pancakes. In fact, I have very rarely made any other kind. One morning, when we lived in Ohio, I had made chocolate chip pancakes. My husband was talking about them at work later that day and most of those he worked with had never had chocolate chip pancakes. Those poor things!

I don't recall ever making pancakes from scratch. I've always used a mix. Today I wanted to try homemade since I was so happy with the homemade waffles.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar (I used brown this time)
1 1/4 cups milk, warmed slightly in the microwave
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
chocolate chips

In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Then toss in some chocolate chips. Lots if you like a lot of chocolate chips and less if you want to go sparingly. I always eyeball it. Then in a small bowl, add milk, egg and butter and whisk together. Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir together gently. Scoop by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot, greased griddle/skillet and cook until golden brown on each side. Enjoy!

These turned out really yummy. I forgot to add vanilla this time and think I will add that in next time though. These went together very simply and quickly. I got about 10 pancakes out of this. So you might want to double it. I only needed to feed three people when I made these so this amount worked for us. Next time when I make them for the whole family I will definitely have to make double. These definitely worked for me!

By the way, did you spot the hidden Mickey? :)

Happy eating!

LOVE chocolate Chip pancakes, but I never make them since SOMEONE in my house can't do chocolate...guess I could just make a few for me, but Josh's aversion is just a good excuse for me to stay away...I may have to give in soon though, those sound REALLY good!
