Chocolate Chip Pancakes


After making two batches of chocolate chip cookies in one week, I was still craving chocolate chips. Thankfully I have the giant bag of chips from Costco. When I was in Paris as a kid, they served chocolate chip cookies along with the chocolate croissants for breakfast. How good is that? Maybe next Sunday I should just bake up a batch of cookies instead of pancakes. Miss F loved these pancakes and she made herself quite the chocolate-y mess. I even snuck her a plain chip or two, which she adored. These are great on a lazy Sunday morning...and I bet cookies would be even better.




Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4- 1/3 cupchocolate chips

shortening (for cooking)

Whisk the egg in a large bowl, adding the buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and let batter set for a few minutes. Heat the griddle over medium heat. Using a paper towel, spread shortening over the griddle. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubbles that form start to pop. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone.
