Chocolate Chip Pancakes for Two
Recipe adapted from Joy the Baker


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 T butter, melted + cooled
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 t brown sugar
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • oil or cooking spray (for cooking)


  1. In a large bowl beat egg. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well until mostly smooth. Fold in chocolate chips and allow batter to sit for a few minutes.
  2. Heat griddle or pan over a medium heat. Add a teaspoon of oil to the pan or spray with cooking spray.
  3. Pour two tablespoons of batter into the griddle. Cook on the first side until bubble start to pop. Feel free to gently lift the pancake with a spatula to make sure the bottom is not overcooking, if so the pan’s too hot and you’ll need to readjust the heat. Flip pancake with spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  4. Place cooked pancakes on a cookie sheet in a 200 degree F oven until ready to eat! (Simply double the recipe for a group of four)

Chocolate Chip Pancakes… as if they aren’t sweet enough on their own.

But it’s a fact that Michigan maple syrup makes everything better.

  1. Thanks Sally!

    They were sure delish. I even used my new vanilla bean paste to make them extra festive for the holidays.

  2. This looks very scrumshis!! I may just use this one for Christmas morning for the kids, not to mention my husband. LOL ;D I love the mini choco chips too!

  3. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

    1. Hey Carley! Thanks for commenting!

      I’d say that for me, I just try to think about what’s going on with me in the moment, and relate to the post. I also try to keep things pretty conversational, so just pretend you’re chit-chatting with a friend! <3 Hope this helps. 🙂
