Blogember 5: Share a favorite recipe.
One of my favorite breakfasts is chocolate chip pancakes. My favorite way to eat them is plain; maybe with a little butter on top. I find the chocolate makes the pancake rich enough for me to enjoy by itself. The rest of my family prefers it topped with peanut butter and maple syrup.
I found this recipe a while ago; I have no credit for it. I believe I merged two recipes together. Sorry! lol
I cook these pancakes on cast iron, so this recipe is geared for that. If you do not own or use cast iron to make pancakes, you may need to adjust or leave out some instructions. Of course, you can always leave out the chocolate chips, or add other ingredients. :]
Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 1/2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
3 1/2 tsp. of Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 tbsp. Sugar (opt.)
1 1/4 cup of Milk
3 tbsp. melted Butter
- Heat cast iron skillet on stove top at medium heat. Add butter to melt while it is heating. (This will help create a non-stick surface on the skillet, as well.)
- Sift the dry ingredients together; make a well and add milk, egg, chocolate chips and melted butter from cast iron skillet. Return the skillet to the stove top. Make sure butter is slightly cooled so it doesn’t cook the egg. I don’t use an exact amount of chocolate chips each time; typically I just eye it and add until I’m satisfied, lol. A tip I received from Homestead Blessings is to fold the mixture, and not beat or mix it all together. It does create a better batter. So fold the mixture until combined; don’t over do it!
- Scoop a large spoonful (ice cream scoop, ladle, etc.) on the heated skillet. Heat until bubbles form; occasionally check the bottom. I notice this batter doesn’t bubble as much as other recipes I’ve used. Flip. Cook until the bottom is browned to satisfaction.
- Enjoy! Top with butter, peanut butter, whipped cream, maple syrup, banana’s, etc. Whatever suits you!
I hope you’re satisfied with the recipe if you decide to give it a try! It doesn’t make a whole lot, but you can easily double or triple the recipe. The batter will be thicker than what normal pancake batter looks like. Tamper with the recipe; experiment!
