This is a breakfast I make a few times a week for my husband and our 5 kids. When you have as many to feed in the morning as I do (and some are very picky), it's nice to find a recipe that makes a lot, is good for you and tastes great! These fluffy pancakes are very versatile. The "polka dot" part is simple to make by adding chocolate chips, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or anything else that looks like "polka dots". We even have these for dinner sometimes with bacon and eggs. Using the whole wheat flour adds an excellent flavor and extra nutrition too. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In another mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla.
  3. Add to flour mixture all at once.
  4. Stir mixture just till blended but still slightly lumpy.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle.
  6. Sprinkle top with desired amount of chocolate chips or berries to make"polka dots".
  7. Cook till pancakes are golden brown, turning to cook second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and slightly dry edges.

These are great tasty pancakes! They cook up thick and dense and "cakey", which actually goes well with the chocolate chips. I think they'd be great with blueberries too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

The flavor on these was really good, especially for being half whole wheat flour. I'll probably make them again without the chocolate chips. But, make sure you have the skillet prepared as soon as the batter is mixed. These have a lot of baking powder, so the batter puffs up and gets thick really quickly. I had to adjust my skillet temp after I burned the first pancake because it was so thick
