Homemade [Chocolate Chip] Pancakes

Just a Sliver: Homemade Chocolate Chip PancakesI have no idea why it has taken me so long to blog this recipe because it makes the PERFECT pancake. A friend gave me this recipe when we lived in Germany (Thanks, AK!) and I have been using it ever since. It is so incredibly simple and tastes just like Bisquick or any other pre-made mix. You will never need to keep pancake mix in the house again! Of course, I added chocolate chips but this recipe can be made as regular homestyle pancakes or the base of any other type of pancake [how about blueberry?!] Enjoy these homemade pancakes for your next weekend brunch!Just a Sliver: Homemade Chocolate Chip PancakesJust a Sliver: Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes

      Hi Erin! I haven’t used this batter to make waffles yet but from the research I’ve done it should work. Some would suggest adding a bit of shortening to help the batter rise if making belgium waffles. Thanks for the comment!
