Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Total Time:
35 min
Prep:
20 min
Cook:
15 min

Yield:
24 pancakes

Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whole, 2 percent fat, or 1 percent fat milk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, or less to taste
  • Butter, for cooking
Directions

In a small saucepan, combine the butter and milk. Place over low heat just until warm and the butter is melted. Let cool slightly. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix well.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork. Whisk in the milk mixture. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until barely blended. Add the chocolate chips and mix.

Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Add about 1 teaspoon of butter and melt until bubbly. Ladle 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake onto the hot surface and cook until bubbly on the top and golden brown on the bottom. Turn and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 30 seconds more. Repeat until all the batter is used up. Serve hot.

Tastes great with wheat flour. Didn't add any salt because chocolate chips already have it. I also wouldn't add the chocolate into the batter, they sink to the bottom and more difficult to ensure each pancake has a few. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very good pancakes. I wouldn't add the chocolate chips directly into the batter. My chocolate chips melted due to my butter and milk not cooling properly. Instead, add the chocolate chips (or blueberries) after the batter has been poured. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pancakes were utterly horrible. They were not sweet enough, and the chocolate chips melted into the mix making the entire batter brown. Since, the pancakes were brown it was difficult to tell if they were done cooking or not. Many came out burnt and tasted even worse. What a waste of ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother has breast cancer and isn't always able to make herself, or others so i needed to help her so i did. This recipe helped me so much because we slept in by accident and was late for her appointment so i looked up something quick to make, found this recipe and thought that'll be a great idea so i tried it and it turned out sooooooo delicious!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this for my kids every Sunday and they love it. I play around with it every time for different taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you want chocolate chip cookies on a stove top then this is your recipe. If you want pancakes, I'd find another one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good! I used only a half a tsp of salt and didn't mix the chocolate chips in batter. Instead, I sprinkled them on right after pouring batter on the griddle. It gives everyone the option of choosing the quantity of chocolate chips. It also helped to satisfy those who would prefer no chocolate chips. Would make this again. Maybe with mashed bananas and walnuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pancakes were way too salty. After making and eating them, I looked up some other pancake recipes and they ask for about one-third the amount of salt prescribed in this recipe. Also, the batter was very sticky and thus did not create circular pancakes when dropped on the griddle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pancakes are sinful they are so good. I warmed up a little chocolate syrup and maple syrup and splashed them with a bit of whipped cream. Unbelievable. My daugher's senior class was having pancake day. That morning she asked me to make these. I asked her "Aren't you going to the pancake breakfast at school?" She told me she'd rather have my pancakes!! This recipe goes in my "Most favorite file" item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and excellent w fresh blueberries too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pancakes were delicous. They were flufy and moist and AWESOME!!!!! I LOVE THESE PANCAKES!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was VERY tasty. Got 3 stars only because the batter was way too runny. And I follow recipes to the T exact. I would suggest adjusting the dry ingredients accordingly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was awesome with some minor adjustments. Had to cut recipe in half since it was for my 2 year old and I. Had to add more milk to make it less thick. Probably cuz my measurements for the ingredients were estimates. In the end all that mattered was that my picky 2 year old ate it all up! She loved the chocolate chips. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Very Tasty! I've made several other pancake recipes from here and these were the best so far. We loved how the chocolate chips melted and swirled in the batter, I just added a few chips to each cake at the pour, to have the chips in the cakes themselves. I will make these again, as requested from the kids : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needed a last minute from-scratch recipe and it was straight forward and very easy to make. The batter seemed to be a bit runny, so the pancakes weren't as fluffy as other ones we have had. Putting the chocolate chips in before cooking the pancakes seemed a little strange - they all sunk to the bottom of the batter and weren't evenly dispersed and therefore melted a lot more in the actual pancake. Overall, the kids thought they were amazing and didn't really notice the lack of fluff. They thought they were one of the best pancakes they've had. Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are the BEST made-from-scratch pancakes....and I've tried many other recipes! Very fluffy and delicious! The only problem I have with this recipe is that it is a little too salty for my family's taste. I will cut the salt back next time...maybe to 1/4 t. since I use regular butter instead of unsalted butter. Also put the chocolate chips on to the batter once it is on the griddle. Other than that...perfect recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great for Sunday mornings! Easy and the kids absolutely loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great! OMG!!! However, I followed the recipe to the t and the chips melted. Not sure if they were meant to but still a rating. OMG! Delish item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sprinkle the chips on the pancake immediately after pouring the batter on the griddle instead of mixing the chips in before pouring. item not reviewed by moderator and published
oh wow item not reviewed by moderator and published
My son came up with the idea of topping them with marshmallow creme instead of syrup. These are easy to make, and perfect for a special breakfast or a dessert pancake. I melt the butter in the microwave, then mix in the milk. This cools the butter so I don't have to wait for it to cool when making the pancakes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The batter was very thick, I did not have any baking powder on hand so I used one tablespoon of baking soda instead and that worked fine. I made half of the batch with chocolate chips and the other half with blueberries. The chocolate chip ones were horrible! Not good at all. Way too much chocolate and melty. The blueberry ones on the other hand were delicious.The batter is not very sweet so if you have some extra sweet blueberries, it turns out wonderful, if not i would suggest that you add more sugar to your batter and maybe even vanilla. My family loved the blueberry ones, give them a try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I let the milk mixture cool for five min and the chocolate chips still almost completely melted. It's more of a chocolate pancake than a chocolate chip one. Also, flipping the pancake is like flipping a thick cake. Too much of a hassle and not quite worth spending the time on it. Easy to burn with all the chocolate- I would recommend not putting in the entire 6 oz and adding the chocolate chips once you have the batter in the pan. item not reviewed by moderator and published
made them on christmas morning and they were the fluffiest things ever item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fluffy and sinful with all the chocolate....that is quite a bit of chocolate chips, go for 4 oz if you want a somewhat less decadent pancake...also, go light on the butter for greasing the pan (I recommend using cooking spray) the first few came out a bit greasy, but overall they were fluffy and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the best and quickest pancake recipe I've had in a really long time. I used mini-chips instead and used a medium cookie scooper to get the pancakes the same size and not get my hands filled with batter. This recipe was quick, easy, and yummy. Definetley a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good cakes in a pinch. Not as flulffy as we would have liked but if you triple the chocolate chips they are really good. Some like Bisquick better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was tired of the humdrum choices of pancake flavors--plain, blueberry, maple, etc.--and this was the perfect recipe for a breakfast with a new taste. It was quick and easy to make, which is perfect for a Saturday morning b/c you can actually spend more time enjoying the food instead of slaving at the stove for it. The pancakes turned out really fluffy and both me and my boyfriend just LOVED the chocolate chips! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've tried at least half a dozen recipes for pancakes, but they were never quite what I had in mind - not even Nigella Lawson's recipe gave the right flavor and consistency (and her recipes are consistently good). This is a great basic recipe and works with or without the chocolate chips. I'm throwing out the others and memorizing this one! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Good recipe. Its good with blueberries instead of chocolate chips too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am very pleased with this recipe. I have been using this recipe for months now and the pancakes taste as good now as they did then. These pancakes are good with any kind of syrup and with or without the chocolate chips (though I don't know why you'd want it without them!) The recipe is simple so get to it and enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These chocolate chip pancakes are so good! I made it with vegetable oil instead of butter and I just used cold milk to shorten prep time. Second time I made it I used 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and 1/4 cup oatmeal and added some walnuts, and they still tasted really good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a recipe to make pancakes from scratch when I ran across this chocolate chip recipe, I've never heard of chocolate chip pancakes before, but I instantly saved it to my recipe box because I am a chocolate lover, and I somehow knew I would love the pancakes. I usually give my kids a snack before going to bed, so I decided to make this recipe, and it was instantly a hit! Everyone loved them, including myself! My son said, "Mom, I'm gonna have to start eating these pancakes more frequently!" They are so good and better if served warm because then the chocolate chips will be warm and gooey! For younger kids you don't even have to add syrup, but it goes great with warm syrup!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love that the warm milk mixture melted the chocolate chips a little so there were swirls of chocolate throughout the entire pancake. I will make this again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I know I can not spell but you do not need to cause this recipie is excellent. Just please remember to pour the eggs slowly into the hot milk or else you might end up with scrambled eggs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ina suggests coating chocolate chips with flour before adding them to a batter in order to prevent them from sinking. It really does work. Hope this helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did you wait for the butter and milk mixture to cool first? Not doing so is probably what made the chips melt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
