If there’s any treat that people are going to recognize universally, it’s going to be pancakes. It’s great for breakfast, it’s great for lunch, it’s great for dinner, it’s great for just about any occasion you can think of! You know what makes pancakes even better? Additives. We’re not talking about at a chemical level, we’re talking about adding ingredients that will make your pancakes awesome. Some people will use blueberries, some people use strawberries, and some people, the best people, use chocolate chips. Let’s talk about chocolate chip pancakes and how you can bring this delicious concoction into your life with little to no effort.
Let’s Get this Pancake off the Ground!
Okay are you ready to cook? You can probably already smell the bacon and eggs that you’re going to have with it, so let’s not dilly dally! We’re going to start by listing off the ingredients that you’re going to need, so make sure you follow this list precisely, at least the first time. As you develop your own pancake cooking methods you might change some of these and you might come up with something entirely new – it’s up to you!
- 1 ½ Cup of Flour
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
- ½ Teaspoon of Salt
- 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
- ¼ Teaspoon of Sugar
- Eggs (2)
- 4 Tablespoons of melted Butter (3/4 stick)
- ¾ Teaspoon of Vanilla
Once you’ve got all of the ingredients assembled, ready, and accounted for, it’s time to turn them into something wonderful. No we’re not talking about a 1/8 replica of the Statue of Liberty, though that would definitely be cool to look at. In any case, follow these instructions and end up with the perfect chocolate chip pancakes.
Preheat – Unlike many other recipes that call for stove preparation, you’re going to need to preheat this one. We recommend using medium eat to prevent spattering when you pour the mixture onto the surface of the pan. In addition to that, we always recommend Teflon to keep the ingredients from sticking.
Combine – This is the fun part! Obtain a large mixing bowl, either plastic or glass, and combine your flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt! We can’t emphasize how important it is to not forget the salt.
Mix – Once you have your ingredients in the mixing bowl, use a beater to mix them until they are smooth. If you want to take it a step further, use a stand mixer to make the mixture even more perfect.
Insert – Now that you have your mixture prepared you’re ready to move on to the fun part: dropping the chocolate chips in! Fold them into the mixture and then get ready to cook.
Cook – You’re now ready to cook! Pour the pancake batter into a fry pan in small quantities and flip the up and coming pancake when it begins to bubble. You can eyeball these and easily tell when they’re done, so don’t worry too much!
Chocolate chip pancakes are an amazing treat and definitely something that you will want to consider trying out. Just follow the above instructions and get ready for deliciousness!
