Every Sunday night my husband cooks Chocolate Chip Pancakes for our supper. It's a family tradition inspired by fond memories of HIS dad cooking waffles on Saturday mornings.
This is the recipe he uses, with a little help from our kids.
Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 beaten egg
1 c. milk
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
chocolate chips to taste (optional)
Mix together dry ingredients in large bowl. In separate bowl combine egg, milk, and vegetable oil. Slowly pour into dry ingredients using a whisk to combine.
Add about 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Be aware that the chips will sink to the bottom. Also, add more chips after scooping out batter to pour onto the griddle. Adding gradually helps control the amount of chips in each pancake.
Using a 1/2 cup scoop to pour the pancakes on the griddle cuts down on the mess and gives uniform sized pancakes. Maybe not uniformed shaped though.
When the tops of the pancakes are dotted and almost dry it's time to flip them over. By the way, this picture contains chocolate chip free pancakes for Daddy who's not a huge fan of the chips.
Add your favorite syrup and enjoy!!
Breakfast food for supper. You gotta love it!! Or are we the only ones who do that?
My husband TRIPLES this recipe for our family of 6. Each person eats about 4-6 pancakes. The pancakes in the above picture are sitting on a dinner plate to give you an idea of the size.
