Chocolate Chip Cookie Pancakes
May 11, 2012
Just want the recipe? Here it is!
Are you celebrating Mother's Day? Are you cooking anything special?
I think I'll make a batch of these chocolate chip cookie pancakes for my mom. Unlike other chocolate chip pancakes, which just add chocolate chips to regular pancake batter, this recipe uses brown sugar, butter, and a generous amount of vanilla to taste like, well, chocolate chip cookies! They're light, fluffy, and, thanks to the dark chocolate chips, special enough for a holiday.
And if you're not celebrating Mother's Day, these pancakes are perfect for any special breakfast.
Here's how to make them:
In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. (To save time on Mother's Day, you can whisk the dry ingredients together the night before.)
Add brown sugar. You want the brown sugar to be nice and soft.
Whisk together. If you see any lumps of brown sugar, break them up with either the whisk or your fingers.
Add eggs. It's always a good idea to crack eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl before adding to batter. This not only prevents any shell from getting into the batter, it will also allow you---on the very rare occasion---to catch a bad egg before it goes into your recipe and spoils it.
And butter and vanilla.
Whisk until smooth. Doesn't that look like really soft chocolate chip cookie dough?
Drop dough onto hot oiled griddle.
Sprinkle or place chocolate chips onto each pancake.
Ooh and Ahh over the melted chocolate that oozes out of the pancake. (I'm the only one who does this? Never mind!)
Enjoy! WIth a little whipped cream and, if you really want to be decadent (and I know you do!), bacon!
