Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is also my favorite meal of the day! So in my household, we have breakfast morning, noon, or night. One night my boys had a hankering for pancakes. Usually I buy the pancake mix at our local discount store but I had forgotten to buy more after our last batch was gone. Well looking in our pantry it seemed as if I had the ingredients to make my own pancakes. Here is what I came up with and it went pretty well!
- 2 Cups of Flour
1/2 Cup of Sugar
2 Tsp of Baking Powder
2 Cups of Chocolate Chips
2 Cups of Buttermilk
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Oil
1 Tsp of Vanilla
You want to shift together all your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl: Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder. Pre-heat your griddle or skillet that you’ll use for your pancakes. Next, make a well into the mound you just created. A well is exactly as it sounds, a hole in the dry ingredients to capture your wet ingredients.
Now you want to add your wet ingredients in the well: Vegetable Oil, Vanilla, Eggs, Buttermilk. You can use regular milk if you don’t have Buttermilk. Stir until all combined.
Now you can add the Chocolate Chips to the mix now if you want. I usually wait until I pour my mixture on the griddle to make sure my entire pancake is covered in Chocolate Chips.
Keep your griddle or skillet on a medium heat. Coat with cooking spray or a bit of butter. Pour out mixture onto griddle or skillet to desired size. I usually cover the batter in Chocolate Chips at this point.
Your ready to flip your pancake once the edges are brown and lots of bubbles form. I usually serve up these pancakes with a side of strawberries since its sweet enough without syrup. However you like your pancakes served, you’ll keep eating these!!
