Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My kids love pancakes. Almost every Sunday they ask, “Can we make pancakes, Pappy?” When I flip them, I try to throw them in the air as high as I can. The kids get a kick out of that. I made these for my daughter’s pre-K class and received rave reviews.

Yield: 2 Servings


  • ½ - ¾ cups milk
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup mini chocolate chips
  • Butter, for oiling pan


In a medium bowl, whisk milk, melted butter and egg lightly until incorporated.

Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into bowl with egg and milk mixture. Mix the batter just until combined; do not over work batter. Add chocolate chips.

Heat a large nonstick sauté pan, wipe down with butter.

Spoon the batter into the pan making the pancakes. Cook in the pan until the cake is golden brown on the bottom and full of bubbles on top. With a spatula turn the cake over to brown other side. Serve warm with sweet butter.
