Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Makes 24 three-inch pancakes.
Course: Breakfast


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Combine buttermilk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract in medium bowl or large measuring cup with a pour spout. Whisk until well combined.
  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and whisk very gently to start combining the ingredients. Add chocolate chips and fold them in with a spatula, taking care not to over-mix the batter.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measure, add batter to a lightly greased griddle or skillet preheated to medium-high. Cook pancakes until large bubbles begin to appear on the top surface, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip pancakes with a thin, wide spatula and cook until golden brown on the second side, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes more. Serve immediately or keep pancakes warm in an oven heated to 200ยบ F until ready to serve.
