Every Sunday, my dad used to make a yummy homemade breakfast for all of us, and we’d gather in the kitchen for some nice family time. It was awesome, and man… that guy can make some breakfast! Sometimes it was waffles or french toast, but probably the most frequent (and my favorite) was chocolate chip pancakes (with lil’ smokies breakfast sausages…mmm). This isn’t his recipe, but it’s durned good.
And add 6 Tablespoons of sugar.
Then throw in 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 2 Tablespoons of baking powder.
Mix mix mix.
In a measuring cup, mix 1 cup of milk and 1/3 cup canola oil (or other veggie oil). Beat in 3 eggs, then combine with the dry ingredients.
You can pour slowly and dramatically if you want.
Stir it up and decide if it’s battery enough (haha battery) for you. It wasn’t.
Add milk until it’s the right texture for you. Some people like thicker pancakes and other people like thinner ones, but this is a pretty good middle…
Once your pan is heated over medium heat, spoon in some pancakes.
And when they get nice and puffy and have bubbles rising to the top like this…
It’s time to flip them!
I made a couple sets of plain ones for hubs, who likes to drizzle syrup on his.
Well… is this still called drizzling?
Eh, I think it’s more like glopping. He likes to glop the syrup on his!
I don’t like anything on mine, unless it’s that spray whipped cream from a can like my dad used to do for us sometimes. But I like mine with CHOCOLATE CHIPS IN THEM.
I’ve found that if I mix the chips into the batter, they all sink to the bottom, and I get weird varying amounts of chips in each pancake, so I just sprinkle them on after spooning the batter into the pan.
Why thank you. I think I will!
The perfect breakfast for a lazy weekend morning.
Here’s the recipe, in case you don’t want to print out the whole thing.
