Chocolate Chip Cakey Buttermilk Pancakes

I love breakfast foods. Growing-up my family always had huge Sunday breakfast with both of my parents cooking eggs, potatoes, pancakes and sausage. After I moved out on my own my breakfast habits became horrible. My idea of a great breakfast was a mocha and cookie from the student center on campus. These weren't little cookies either, they were literally half the size of my head. As I look back I am so thankful that I inherited my dads fast metabolism and those cookies never caught up with me. When I got married I started making waffles. I love waffles and they are very easy to make for breakfast. Pancakes were another story. Every time I tried to make pancakes they would burn or the middle would stay uncooked. Then I bought my griddle/grill and all that changed. If you don't have a griddle I highly recommend one. I have a gas stove and it can be finicky at best, so making pancakes can be a task to say the least. However, my griddle has completely changed my opinions on pancakes. No more burning, or underdoness, just deliciousness. Recently, I started using a new recipe from the Food Network for Cakey Buttermilk Pancakes, which is very easy and works with a variety of mix-ins.

This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes twenty-three minutes of total time and makes 3 to 4 servings. I made one large modifications. I prefer my pancakes to have some sort of add-in, so I added dark chocolate chips to the batter. Additionally the original recipe tops with blueberry maple syrup, I chose to top my pancakes with strawberries and butter. Since I used my griddle I left off the two tablespoons of butter for cooking since I felt it was an unnecessary fat. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

These pancakes are delicious. They are light and fluffy and the dark chocolate chips give the pancakes an almost dessert taste. Another great mix-in would be fresh fruit such as raspberries, blueberries or chopped strawberries. My two boys love this recipe and can eat a whole batch in a day. This is a definitely a keeper recipe in my household, sure to be made frequently in the future.

  4. Made me laugh when I read your idea of breakfast during your college days. Mine were similar, generally involving a giant coke and an inappropriate sweet of some sort. Haha! Those were the days!

    I can eat breakfast foods anytime, but I especially love it for dinner and these pancakes sound divine. Next to my crockpot, my griddle is my best friend. I'll definitely be trying out these pancakes!! Thanks, Frugal :)

    1. I drank a lot of coke during college also :) I am a big breakfast for dinner person as well. The griddle is the best kitchen tool (besides my crockpot of course). My pancakes are so much better!! Tell if you like the recipe.

  6. I love breakfast too...well, not for breakfast, but for lunch or dinner. I make waffles and pancakes all the time for then. I have fond memories of big farm breakfasts when I visited family- tons of food and fresh from the cow milk :)
