Chocolate Chip Scratch Pancakes are for when you have kids you are always looking for ways to feed them breakfast!  I am very lucky that my husband gets up and makes breakfast on weekdays but he is always complaining about having limited breakfast options for our picky eaters.  Well, this weekend, I decided to give him a break. I dug up one of my old restaurants Sunday brunch recipes. This from-scratch pancake recipe was originally meant to make about a hundred pancakes but with a little modification, it was a big hit with the family.  I added the chocolate chips to make them extra special.  

Chocolate Chip Scratch Pancakes

Yield = 15 pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1  tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips 

In a small bowl mix the dry ingredients and set aside.  In a large mixer bowl, mix eggs, buttermilk, melted butter, and milk.  Stir in dry ingredients a little at a time. The mixture may be a little lumpy.  You are looking for a batter consistency and can add a little more milk to achieve that if needed.  

Heat a griddle to 350 degrees.  Spray with cooking spray. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to pour the mixture onto the griddle.  Place some chocolate chips on the pancake after a few seconds. Wait until small bubbles form and then flip the pancake over.  Continue to cook until a desired golden brown color. Serve with butter and syrup. Another great idea for something different for breakfast is an old fashioned loaf of banana nut bread. Try it you will love it!

Enjoy!
