Chocolate Chip Pancakes! (the Basics)

Snow, snow, snow... My hubby is shoveling so I quickly prepped pancake batter for when he comes in. Seems a simple thing to blog but sometimes it's nice to talk basics! So much better than a mix & healthier & fresher. I've used the following amounts since I can remember & I am not sure where they are from:

Lishie's "Best" Pancake Batter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 TBsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 TBsp (I use canola) oil

  • butter (for the pan)

Chocolate chips (this pancake batter is so versatile, you can add any type of chip, crushed nuts, blueberries, etc., etc. here.)

Use a non-stick flat pan or griddle on medium heat... add a dab of butter, melt it (but don't let it burn) & swirl it around the pan. Drop the batter onto the hot pan in dollups ;) Drop some chocolate chips on top of each. When bubbles begin to form on top of the pancake, it's time to flip!

Not the best pictures (can't even see the chocolate chips) but they were yummy!
Using a batter bowl like this one makes it so easy:
