Chocolate Chip Pancakes

It’s always a treat to have pancakes for breakfast. Soft, fluffy, lightly sweetened and adorned with a smear of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.

It’s even more of a treat to sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Especially for the kids. Be prepared for a round of “YAY!” Who knows, the little bit of chocolate in these pancakes might just perk up your mood for a bright and cheerful day. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks Sherry, I often use soured milk, that is, milk with a bit of vinegar added, to my pancakes since I don’t often have buttermilk on hand. This soured milk has many of the same effects as buttermilk, making the pancakes fluffy and tender.

  4. Thanks, Alisa, Foodista sounds interesting. πŸ™‚
