Chocolate Chip Pancakes

chocolate chip pancakes

A fun recipe for chocolate chip pancakes made with fresh buttermilk, eggs, butter, and chocolate chips. Serve these pancakes for breakfast or brunch with maple or strawberry syrup and top with fresh whipped cream.

Homemade pancakes are always a treat for the family. The children will especially like the chocolate chips in the batter. Actually, I think just about everyone will appreciate the chocolate chips in the batter!

They are shown with homemade maple strawberry syrup and sweetened whipped cream. Blueberry sauce would be a nice alternative as well. I love the bright red color of the strawberry syrup. What a nice surprise for your special loved ones on Valentine’s Day or Christmas.

If you want to go all out you could also serve these chocolate chip pancakes with vanilla ice cream for a decadent treat.

The heart and daisy shapes of these pancakes were made with these pancake molds. Sometimes it is fun to experiment with new shapes. They are easy to use and will add a memorable touch to your breakfast or brunch table.

*If you do not have fresh buttermilk, you can substitute 1 cup of water and 4 Tablespoons Saco Buttermilk powder instead. It works very well. Buttermilk powder is found in most larger grocery stores, either near the powdered milk section or sometimes in the baking section. It is a great item to have on hand.
