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


  • 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.
