National Pancake Day: Chocolate Chip

Today is National Pancake Day, and, of course, you'll want to be making Chocolate Chip Pancakes. I had several links to Chocolate Chip Pancakes during Pancake Week including Healthy Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Double Chocolate Pancakes and Viennese Chocolate Pancakes.

Here's a simple Chocolate Chip Pancake Recipe.

Make a batch of your favorite pancake batter. For every cup of dry pancake mix, use 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Mix the batter. Stir in the chips. Lightly grease and heat the griddle or skillet. Pour a little less than 2 tablespoons of batter for each pancake. When bubbles appear all over the uncooked side of the pancake, it's time to turn it over. Cook the second side until light brown.

or, if you don't have your own pancake recipe:

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 1/2 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
3 eggs, separated
4 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 2/3 c. buttermilk
1 1/3 c. chocolate chips

Put dry ingredients in bowl. Combine well beaten egg yolks with buttermilk and stir lightly into dry ingredients. Add chips. Stir in melted butter. Beat in stiffly beaten egg whites. Cook on griddle or in skillet. Makes 10-12 pancakes.
