  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk (more as needed)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • ½ cup chocolate Chips
  • Optional: top with more chocolate chips, syrup, and whipped cream.


  • Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. In a separate bowl beat egg then add milk and melted butter. Now mix together wet and dry ingredients.
  • Heat a frying pan with a small amount of butter. When your pan is at a heated up pour a small amount of batter, about ¼ cup. Sprinkle on chocolate chips.
  • When you see bubbles forming on your pancake it's ready to be flipped!
  • Cook each side until fully cooked. Top with syrup or whipped cream and enjoy. 



How do I prevent my chocolate chips from burning?
One thing to note in these directions are that I do not mix my chocolate chips in the batter. The reason for that is, if the chips touch the hot frying pan, they will burn. What you want to do is have the chips on the side, and when you put your pancake down, and the initial sear and cook of the frying pan starts, you then add your chips to the top of the pancake. This will prevent them from burning on the bottom longer cook, and when you flip the pancake, they will just melt perfectly!
What should I cook my pancakes on?
I used a frying pan for my pancakes. The more even your heat source is the better when cooking pancakes. The best option would be to use a griddle if you have one. A griddle will give you a great even heat source to allow the pancakes to cook perfectly!
