get your pancake on


Happy Fat Tuesday!   I know for some people Mardi Gras is all about drinking, for me it’s all about eating some pancakes!  You could chow down on some free pancakes from IHOP.   Or perhaps break out the Batter Blaster.  Personally, Iknow I’ll be making chocolate chip pancakes.   This is one of my favorite (and easiest) recipes from Baking Bites

Chocolate Chip Pancakes
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into flour mixture and stir until combined. Batter should be a little bit lumpy. Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat. When a drop of water sizzles on the surface, drop heaping spoonfuls of batter onto the skillet, making 3-inch pancakes. Place a few chocolate chips (about 6) onto each pancake. Cook for about 2 minutes, until golden brown, then flip and cook the other side for an additional minute. Serve immediately, with whipped cream, powdered sugar or maple syrup.
Makes about 15 pancakes.
