Best Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3.5 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1.5 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1.25 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp water
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. In a 1 liter glass measuring cup or large bowl, microwave 3 tbsp butter until melted (~45 seconds).
  2. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and stir together with a whisk.
  3. Add vanilla, milk, egg and water and whisk for about 3 minutes. It is important that the mixture is very well blended with no lumps in the batter.
  4. Heat skillet over medium heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray, and pour about ¼ cup mixture into center of heated skillet.
  5. Immediately add ~10-15 chocolate chips on top, and wait until holes form in the batter. Check the bottom with a spatula to make sure the pancake does not burn. If it burns before done cooking (holes in batter), lower the heat a little.
  6. Once holes form in the batter, flip the pancake and cook for about 2 minutes. Both sides should be browned.
  7. Garnish with powdered sugar and syrup and enjoy!
Makes 6 medium sized pancakes.
