Introduction: Amazing Chocolate Chip Pancakes Made From Scratch

I've always loved pancakes. I've been making them with my grandma since I can remember. Over the years we've explored many different recipes. Nothing compares to her recipe, but this one comes really close. I've applied to this standard recipe some of the trix that she's thought me over the years to make it even better.


To start you need;

a large bowl,

a spachulla,

a frying pan,

a set of measuring cups,

a butter knife,

and finally

a wooden spoon.

Step 1: Ingredients

To make you need;

2 cups of all purpose flour,

2 tablespoons of granulated sugar,

2 teaspoons of baking powder,

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt,

1 1/2 cups of seltzer,

2 large eggs,

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil,

1/2 cup of chocolate chips,

and finally butter.

Step 2: Combine the Dry Ingredients


2 cups of flour,

2 tablespoons of sugar,

2 teaspoons of baking powder,

1/2 cup of chocolate chips,

and 1/2 of a teaspoon of salt in the bowl,

then mix thoroughly. If you have a sweet tooth like I do you can add a few more chocolate chips in.

Step 3: Add in the Wet Ingredients

Add in;

1 1/2 cups of seltzer,

2 eggs,

and 2 tablespoons of oil in the bowl.

Mix thoroughly. You want to the mixture to look like the above picture. If it's to dry a splash of seltzer to the bowl. Make sure not to add too much, if you do add a bit of flour, and vice versa. If it's to wet add a bit of flour, and to even it out if you add to much add a splash of seltzer. You don't too many lumps, but you still want a few.

Step 4: Cooking the Pancakes

Take you frying pan and heat it over either 6 or medium heat depending on what kind of stove you have. Take you butter knife, and get a good amount of butter on it, and spread it all over the pan with the butter knife. (If it looks like too much butter then that means you did it right.) Put your hand under the faucet, and touch the faucet top. Get a few drops on your hand. Splash them on the top of the pan if it makes a sizzling sound that means you can use your 1/4 measuring cup, and scoop up some pancake batter, and put it on the pan. If it doesn't make the sizzling sound wait a few seconds, and try again. If it doesn't sizzle after that it means you need more butter. Let the pancakes cook until the edges look ferm, and there are popping bubbles in the middle. Then flip them over, and wait about 1 minute them put them on a plate ready to serve. Wait 1 - 2 minutes for them to cool then enjoy!
