The Best Pancakes

12 May

chocolate chip pancakes

I love pancakes every so often and I really didn’t like ¬†all the recipes I found.

After trial and a lot of error I found a recipe in my Bible.

My Bible is The Joy Of Cooking.

This is one of the best cookbooks.

My book is 40 years old, thread bear and is still my go to book for anything.

I will give you her basic recipe and then my changes.

1 1/2 cups sifted flour

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoon sugar

1 3/4 teaspoons double acting baking powder

1 to 2 beaten eggs

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/4 cups milk

Mix all the dry ingredients and mix with all the wet ingredients.

Thats it !

Cook on a hot buttered griddle until bubbles form, then flip and serve.

My version is to follow the recipe except substitute and delete some things.

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Reduce the milk by 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup french vanilla liquid coffee creamer.

Change the milk to half and half.

Use 2 teaspoons of baking powder instead of 1 3/4 teaspoons.

I also use the two eggs not one.

If you like chocolate chip pancakes buy the mini chocolate chips.

These pancakes are a little sweet and make a delicious ham, egg and cheese sandwich with maple syrup on the side.

These are my special occasion pancakes so it’s okay to be decadent.

Feel free to substitute any other flavor of coffee creamer but I like the vanilla the best.

Enjoy
