Probably the yummiest pancakes I've ever made. Even though I love chocolate and have a giant sweet tooth, I think I would reduce the chocolate chips to 1/2 to 3/4 cup next time. No syrup was even needed! I used the mini chocolate chips which worked great. Pancakes didn't turn out perfectly round, but who cares! They were delicious and the kiddos loved them (mom, too)! Loved the hint of cinnamon and vanilla. It made about 12-13 pancakes using 1/4 cup scoop. Yummy!
Based on the prior reviews and to make it a bit more healthy I used 3/4 cup of White whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of All Purpose flour....sift after you measure the flour for this recipe. Also, I substituted unsweetened applesauce for the butter..1:1 ratio. I also reduced the milk to 3/4 of a cup (I use 1% milk). I was able to make a dozen 3.5 to 4 inch pancakes. They don't spread like other recipes I have tried so swirl your spoon, scoop or whatever you use to round out the cake and produce the size you would like. The results for me were tender fluffy pancakes that my 17 and 23 yr old sons devoured. They said this recipe was a keeper for sure...with or without syrup. Good luck and enjoy!
The only thing not perfect was...I used 1/2 cup of mini choc chips...and that was still really sweet and they were the semi sweet kind. I wouldn't use a whole cup! Otherwise, amazing and a keeper of a recipe. I prepared the batter left it lumpy and let it sit for five to ten minutes till bubbles formed in the batter...Light and fluffy, I also used a non stick pan so there were no problems there either!
