Chocolate Chip Pancakes

/

Each week I ask Tom for suggestions on what I should make for dinner the following week. Usually he tells me the same things over and over again, pizza, tacos or burgers. This week when I asked him he responded with "breakfast".

Well, that narrowed things down, didn't it? Later on he decided to elaborate and tell me that he wanted pancakes. We typically make pancakes from the boxed mix, which he did remember to pick up at the grocery store at the last minute, but when I got ready to make dinner, I decided I wanted to make the pancake mix from scratch.

When I need a recipe in a hurry, I pop on over to allrecipes.com. That's where I found this recipe. I decided to make a slight adjustment and add chocolate chips to the pancakes.

Ingredients:
    • 1 1/2 cups AP flour
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 tbs. sugar
    • 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/4 cup milk (I used skim)
    • 3 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Sift the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder together in a large bowl. Transfer to another large bowl and sift everything through again.
2. Add the milk, egg and butter to the flour mixture. Stir until mostly smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
3. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium. Once hot, pour about 1/4 cup of the pancake batter into the center of the skillet.
4. When the batter forms bubbles around the edges and in the center, flip the pancake over and brown on the other side.

I have absolutely no idea why I've never made pancake batter from scratch before. Its incredibly easy and (this recipe at least) uses ingredients that I always have on hand. Once the box of the pre-mixed stuff is gone, I refuse to buy another box.

These pancakes were light, fluffy and had just enough chocolate in them for a slight sweetness. Otherwise known as my idea of a perfect pancake!
