Chocolate Chip Pancakes
So...not technically considered baking, but these tasty pancakes are so easy to make--and you'll love them! They have a great amount of sweetness and they just melt in your mouth!
Hmm...Christmas morning breakfast, perhaps? :)
-1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
-a few drops of vanilla extract
-1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, melted
-1 c. all-purpose flour
-1 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 c. milk
-butter, for frying
-chocolate chips, to add
1. Whisk together the sugar, egg, and vanilla until foamy. Whisk in the melted butter and then add the flour and baking powder. Pour in the milk, whisking it all together to make a smooth, thick batter.
2. Melt a little butter into a nonstick frying pan--just enough to coat the bottom. When it is sizzling, drop in tablespoons of batter, allowing enough room between them so that you can turn them over easily. At this point, drop a few chocolate chips onto the pancakes before flipping them for the first time.
3. Fry over medium heat until air bubbles appear on the surface and the bottoms are golden and set. Flip them over with a spatula and fry the other side. When the new undersides are golden brown, lift them onto a plate with your spatula and cook the rest of the batter, adding more butter to the pan as it is needed. Make sure tha tthe pan keeps a steady heat and doesn't get too hot.
4. Top with butter and powdered sugar. Eat and enjoy!
